I have yet to see a quality product in the States from India. Even products that were designed here and built here, then shipped to India/China to be mass produced still turn out to be of lesser quality.

The BMW motorcycle division is rumored to be getting serious about racing again. Let's not forget that the factory team won the Paris-Dakar race several times in the past. They know how to do it if the rest of the company is behind them with the necessary euros.
