Earlier, the iconic American motorcycle brand Harley Davidson has announced to stop its manufacturing and massively scaling back its sales operations in India.
This move is a part of Harley Davidson’s global strategy the Rewire that was revealed by the new CEO Jochen Zeitz.
This decision comes weeks after Toyota said it wouldn’t expand further in India which is the biggest Motorcycle market, due to the country’s high tax regime.
Reportedly, the shutting of operations involves $75m in restructuring costs, around 70 redundancies, and the closure of its Bawal plant in northern India.
Bawal plant was opened in 2011 but Harley-Davidson has struggled to compete with local brand Hero as well as Japan’s Honda.
About 17 million motorcycles and scooters are sold each year in India.
