Well the option lists on the Harleys look nice here in India,but once you see the prices of these options you go like WHAT??
A friend did buy a Harley sometime back & the simple number plate holder was 18,000 !!
Extra seat for the pillion also came at a huge price & the exhaust was around the 1 lakh plus,but end of the day its a statement when everyone has a superbike you have a Harley with pricy options,guess someone who wants a look at Harleys here should look at Honda Rune also,that thing has good road presence but more silent,but a Harley is a Harley,the other day when a Harley did arrive at one of the cafes some one in anther table assumed it was an old jeep that was making that noise,guessing Indians prefer superbike howls over a Vtwin sounding similar to an American nitro drag racer.
Prads, for us these bikes are premium & equal to the price of cars we own. We can never expect the prices to fall drastically & right now the only Harley any from the middle class can afford is the Iron 883 & other low end model below 1000cc that too on EMIs else we can safely forget that Harley's exist in India as well now
