American manufacturer of cruiser motorcycles has recently entered India with few of their products. Indian Motorcycle officially entered India during January, 2014. Back then they launched Chieftain, Chief Classic and Chief Vintage motorcycles.
Indian Motorcycle now is contemplating on expanding its dealership network. Currently they have a single dealership for entire India, which creates a lot of hassle for buyers. The American manufacturer now plans inaugurating its second dealership in Bangalore, India.
Their goal is to set up their second dealership in India by mid-February, 2015. Indian Motorcycle is also looking at opportunities to have a 3S facility for its clientele. If they can achieve this task they will have sales, service and spares all under one roof.
Indian Motorcycle builds exquisite motorcycles, however, it attracts a hefty price tag as well. This price tag is due to the Completely Built Route that the American manufacturer has opted for, which involves hefty taxes.
Indian Motorcycle currently offers four luxury cruisers in India:
- Indian Scout is priced at INR 11,99,000 ex-showroom, Mumbai.
- Chief Classic is priced at INR 26,50,000 ex-showroom, Mumbai.
- Chief Vintage is priced at INR 29,50,000 ex-showroom, Mumbai.
- Chieftain is priced at INR 33,00,000 ex-showroom, Mumbai.
Indian Motorcycle is currently falling behind in terms of dealerships, in comparison to its competitors. Harley-Davidson and Triumph motorcycles are constantly expanding their dealer and service network all across India.
