According to the media report, information about this development was given by the company’s president and CEO Matthew Levatich.
According to Matthew Levatich, president and CEO of the company, the company is the part of the company’s ‘More roads to Harley-Davidson’ growth plan. In many countries other than India, the market for the small-engine bike is fast growing. Harley Davidson is preparing to launch a new bike (cheapest model), in order to reach most of the people. Harley-Davidson sells the company 750 cc bikes in India. It is sold in the International market with a 500cc engine.
