Harley Davidson started off as a company manufacturing motorcycles during the beginning of the 20th century. It was a 116 cc engine built by two boys William Harley and Arthur Davidson of 22 and 21 that took up various forms in future and establish itself as a motorcycle manufacturing company. In the career the company has faced many challenges on its way, fighting out poor economic conditions, quality issues and technical problems with engines. Harley Davidson has evolved itself during the process and has stood up as a pioneer in manufacturing cruisers with competition from other global giants.
Harley Davidson has made their way to Indian market after passing through the emission norms of the land and bearing the tariffs imposed on their motorcycles that get imported to India. Inspite of heavy import duties it was the demand for Harley Davidson cruisers in India that boosted the confidence of makers to sell their bikes here. The brand is well known across the globe for its huge cruisers powered by large capacity (over 800 cc) V engine. The brand is currently selling bikes of Softail, Sportster, Dyna and VRSC model families in India. Harley Davidson has outlets in major metros in India that includes Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata and New Delhi.
