Harley-Davidson India has opened two new dealerships in India, the first one at Diamond City Harley-Davidson in Surat, Gujarat, while the second one is Tusker Harley-Davidson in Bengaluru in Karnataka. With this establishment in Surat, it becomes the second dealership in Gujarat, where Harley-Davidson had set up their first at Ahmedabad in 2012. With this inclusion, there are 17 authorised Harley-Davidson dealerships in the country at present.

The launch of these dealerships is a clear indication to the fact that Harley-Davidson is going for strategic expansion in the country. Incidentally, the brand is about to successfully complete five years of its presence in the country. The brand has also said that it would grow its presence in the country with the primary focus being on the Tier I cities. Apart from that, the American two-wheeler giant will also venture towards establishing themselves in Tier II cities.

Anoop Prakash, the Managing Director of Harley-Davidson India said, “Our dealer network in India has grown rapidly over the past five years, and has welcomed thousands of owners and enthusiasts across the country who seek to experience the Harley-Davidson lifestyle and culture. This year alone we’ve opened additional locations in Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and now Bengaluru along with the first dealership in Surat, our second facility in Gujarat. We wish to congratulate our dedicated dealer partners on their new, world-class facilities.”
