    Thumbs up Harley-Davidson range now begins at Rs 5.5 lakh!

    Source: Harley range now begins at Rs 5.5 lakh! - SuperLow and Iron 883 first of H-D's CKD offerings - News : Overdrive

    As OVERDRIVE predicted in the magazine's December issue, Harley-Davidson is now offering the SuperLow for Rs 5.5 lakh and the Iron 883 for Rs 6.5 lakh, ex-showroom. The SuperLow and Iron share their 883cc V-twin engine but the latter offers a black theme. Bookings for both models will open on January 1, 2011. More information on the models is available at the company's website, Harley-Davidson India - Home.

    Here is the entire press release:

    New Delhi, December 14, 2010 – Harley-Davidson today introduced the new SuperLow™ and Iron 883™ models to its expansive model portfolio in India. With this addition, Harley-Davidson offers a motorcycle to match the desires of almost any rider, from urban street bikes and roadsters, to long-distance touring machines and contemporary custom cruisers.

    The SuperLow™ and Iron 883™ will be the first 2 models to roll out of the CKD assembly facility in Bawal and will be introduced at Rs. 5,50,000 and Rs. 6,50,000 (ex-showroom), respectively. These models will be available across the five Harley-Davidson dealerships, in addition to the existing model line-up in 2011.

    Comfort and ease of riding are key aspects of the SuperLow™ experience as the model aims to introduce the pure pleasure of motorcycling with balanced and responsive handling that help the rider and machine glide through corners and uneven surfaces with smooth confidence. A low seat height, broad powerband from its 883cc V-Twin engine and clean styling complete an appealing package that is an invitation to get out and ride.

    The Iron 883™ pushes minimal Dark Custom styling to the edge with its V-Twin beat and gritty, old-school garage features. The Iron 883 provides responsive handling, smooth clutch effort and durable carbon reinforced drive belt. Decked in black from fender-to-fender, the black powder-coat 883cc Evolution powertrain with black covers takes the Iron 883 motorcycle deep into the heart of darkness. Moreover, the performance tuning with a broad torque curve, the Iron 883 delivers plenty of power for city and highway riding.

    Bookings for the SuperLow™ and Iron 883™ will commence on January 1, 2011, at Harley-Davidson dealerships around India.

    Harley-Davidson India commenced operations in August 2009 and opened its first dealership in July 2010. The Company currently offers 12 models in its 2010 line-up in India, available through authorized dealerships in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chandigarh and Hyderabad.

    ^^^ 101% agreed; Iron 883 has killer looks; I too agree that with CKD, the price should've brought even lower.

    Ps - Its actually correct; price of Iron 883 is around $8K. Conversion for Rs 47 works to about 3.76L. With CKD route, I assume there's only 30% tax reduction. Which means, 3.76 X 70% (100-30) = 6.4L approx

    I think CKD operations havent started as of now. The announcement was made during Obama's visit and its just a month since then. Also, CKD operations commencement will be a big news and that will definitely find a spot in press release.

    ckd is roughly around 30% tax. but they want to cover their factory setup costs too. hence only a 30% reduction in price.

    883 used to be 6.9 earlier.
