The recent revision in CKD duties has lead to increase in costs for all companies which assemble completely knocked down kits in the country, including Harley Davidson. However the Milwaukee based bike maker has affirmed that it won’t increase the price of its CKD assembled bikes, even though the company would have to pay more duty to the Government. The company will start assembling the SuperLow (priced at Rs. 5.5 lakhs) and Iron 883 (priced at Rs. 6.5 lakhs) from its upcoming facility at Bawal in Haryana.
“We are firm in honouring our commitment to our dealers, customers and enthusiasts across India, and are delighted to announce that we will maintain our current prices on our CKD models, the Iron 883 and SuperLow, for this calendar year,” Harley-Davidson India MD Anoop Prakash said.
