    Harley-Davidson Thursday launched a new version of its Fat-Boy bike in the country with a price tag of Rs.19,70,000

    "This model will be imported as a completely built unit and will be available across all dealerships in addition to the 14 models currently available in the 2011 line-up," the company said in a statement.

    According to the company, the launch of the model was inline with the strategy of introducing new models and commencement of complete knockdown assembly operations in India.

    The statement further said that bike is powered by electronic sequential port fuel injection (ESPFI) engine which produces 125 nm of peak torque at 3500 rpm.

    "6-speed cruise drive transmission features a new helical-cut fifth gear for smooth operation," it added.

    The company said that it has partnered with HDFC Bank for a broad spectrum of financial services.

    "This arrangement will help more motorcycle enthusiasts realise their dream of joining the Harley-Davidson community,
    " Harley-Davidson India's managing director Anoop Prakash said.

    hehe..if people have the green to pay 15L for an r1 i think this is no big deal..besides this is an entree into a segment that doesn't exist..the more economical models will come into the market as it matures, you must remember that it is a big deal that they are introducing these bikes...because to be honest, their earnings are still in the high volume exconomy sub1 150cc category..with the introduction of these bikes...its a pointer to the fact that they are taking the market much more seriously..!

    if you remember about 12years ago bmw came into the market with a JV with hero..with the funduro 650gs at that time it was for 4.5Lacs...and it failed miserable...now though you see hayabusas and r1's ninjas quite often..! its a different market today..people have the money to spare now..!

    Perfect bike launched for fat boy.it's looks like Royal Enfield motorcycle.The model bridges the gap between the basic and the thunderbird model. Like the brand shows, it is one of the bikes that promises the appeal as well as style, which blend together in this model.
