Harley-Davidson Slashes Prices
Touring & CVO Series – Old Price vs. New Price
|Bike Name||Old Price||New Price||Difference|
|Road King||INR 28,37,000||INR 24,99,000||INR 3,38,000|
|Street Glide||INR 33,50,000||INR 29,99,000||INR 3,51,000|
|Road Glide||INR 35,61,000||INR 32,99,000||INR 2,62,000|
|CVO Limited||INR 53,72,000||INR 49,99,000||INR 3,73,000|
This change came through the implementation of lower excise duty on pure CBUs as all others in the Harley lineup are local production or CKD models. Donald Trump recently issued second statement regarding the taxes levied on motorcycle exports from the US market.
He believes that either India removes the duty completely or they will start charging the same amount from Indian manufacturers selling bikes in the US for zero taxes. The effect of this statement may bring the taxes further down.
Harley-Davidson is one among those limited American brands that may get the benefits of talk between President of America and Indian taxation department. The changes will soon also reflect in other brands like Indian Motorcycles as they are also manufactured in the US.
Even is this thing stays specific to US, other brands like Triumph, Yamaha, Suzuki and Ducati will soon reflect the changes in their present pricing. Expecting a drop of INR 1 lakh on a bike worth INR 15 lakh will be the most genuine thing.
