Harley Abandons India, Triumph Doubles Down
A week ago we were surprised to learn Harley-Davidson was pulling out of India after more than a decade producing and selling its products there. Today, it’s interesting to learn that Triumph Motorcycles is expecting its sales to grow around 15 to 20 per cent this fiscal year in India, and is gearing up to roll out a pre-owned vehicle program in the country by next month. That’s according to a senior company official quoted here in the Hindustan Times online.
Triumph assembles most of its bikes in its UK and Thailand factories, but has also been producing the lion’s share of its models for the Indian market in a factory it brought online in Manesar in 2017.
