Harley-Davidson has discontinued two motorcycles from its extensive portfolio. The cruiser bike manufacturer will not be selling the Fatboy Special and Superlow models in the Indian market. Existing stocks will be available, however, post that, either model will not be on sale in the country.
Official website of Harley-Davidson showcases both models among 2015 portfolio. Unfortunately, they will not be included in Harley-Davidson's 2016 portfolio. In India, like most Harley-Davidson cruisers, the Fatboy Special and Superlow were Completely Knocked Down (CKD) units.
Both, the Fatboy Special and Superlow cruisers have been on sale in India for approximately three years. During this period, however, Harley-Davidson did not witness sales as expected from these models. One of the main reason for discontinuing both products is low sales.
Currently, Harley-Davidson's most popular offering is the Street 750 in India. Street 750 is their most affordable product, which is priced at Rs. 4.70 lakh ex-showroom (Mumbai). Unfortunately, sales of Street 750 have also dipped owing to no update to the cruiser.
Harley-Davidson will be present at the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi. The American manufacturer could showcase a few upcoming products as well as a couple of future concept models. Currently, Harley-Davidson is facing tough competition from Triumph Motorcycles and Indian Motorcycles in the Indian market.
