Harley-Davidson plans CKD assembly in India

  • 18-Nov-2010 04:29 EST

Harley-Davidson Inc. is moving forward with the launch of operations in India to assemble motorcycles for the Indian market from component kits supplied by its U.S. plants. The company expects the CKD (complete knock-down) facility to be operational in the first half of 2011. Currently, Harley-Davidson India is importing completely assembled motorcycles from its U.S. plants. Once the Indian CKD assembly facility in Haryana is operational, the company will ship kits of components made at Harley plants in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Missouri, as well as components by the company's suppliers. Some models will continue to be imported as completely built motorcycles for now. India joins Brazil as the only other country with a Harley CKD operation.
