Harley Davison in India
As already covered previously, Harley Davidson quit independent operations in India late last year after more than a decade of subdued performance in the market. After it quit India operation, the American brand entered into a distribution and licensing agreement with Hero MotoCorp as a part of its Rewire strategy. As per this distribution agreement, the Indian two-wheeler manufacturer will be responsible for selling and service Harley Davidson motorcycles through Harley’s existing network of dealers.
The licensing agreement, on the other hand, will give Hero MotoCorp the responsibility to sell and develop a number of premium motorcycles under Harley Davidson models. More details on upcoming Harley models will be shared in the coming months.
