Harley-Davidson India recently completed six years of operations in the country. The company holds around 60 per cent of market share in the 600cc-plus motorcycle segment in the country. Harley-Davidson has achieved this through its strong 13-bike lineup and increasing number of dealerships in cities like Guwahati, Ludhiana, Indore, Jaipur, Surat, Nagpur, Lucknow and Coimbatore, plus more coming in Dehradun and Delhi. They also have a merchandise-only showroom at the International Airport in Mumbai.

Harley-Davidson has a first-of-its-kind mobile dealership called Legend on Tour. Passport to Freedom is a program that is encouraging new riders by introducing them to techniques that help them become better riders. Harley Rock Riders, Harley-Davidson’s annual motorbike and music festival, also gathered momentum for the brand in its tour through New Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Nagpur and Jaipur.
