US bike maker Harley Davidson will start full-scale 'building' of motorcycles in India from where it will also start exporting to Europe and South East Asian markets.
The company which unveiled the new Harley Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 motorcycles — its first all-new platform in 14 years at Milan — said it will start building the two new models in India in the first quarter of next year.
"We are going to utilise our plant in India to build the 'Street' models not only to cater to the market there but also export to Europe and South East Asia," Harley-Davidson Motor's president and COO Matthew Levatich said.
Since early 2011, Harley Davidson has been assembling motorcycles in India at its CKD (completely-knocked-down) assembly unit at Bawal in Haryana catering only to the market here.
"Now what we are going to do is that instead of the CKD kits coming from our plants in the US, the parts will now directly come to India from vendors and bikes will be assembled there," he said.
