Harley-Davidson has inaugurated a new dealership in Jammu called Ridges Harley-Davidson, bringing the total count to 32 dealerships in the country. With the new dealership, Harley-Davidson aims to serve riders going to other tourist destinations up the valley and beyond. The brand believes the demand in Tier II cities is healthy enough to warrant its presence.
Harley-Davidson’s most popular motorcycle in India is the Street 750 and, at Rs 5.34 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), it is incidentally the most affordable one too.
Interestingly, its sportier cousin, the Street Rod, witnessed healthy sales in October with a tally of 61 units -- a 33 per cent jump compared to the same month last year. On the other hand, the Street 750 led the sales chart, dispatching 84 units. The next two highest-selling models in October this year were the Harley-Davidson Forty Eight and the Fat Bob - both tallying 19 units each.
Here’s the brand’s press release regarding the new dealership inauguration:
