Assembled at the company's facility at Bawal, Haryana, this new addition from the Dyna family expands its portfolio of completely knockdown (CKD) models to six.

"The launch of the Fat Bob as CKD will allow more customers to experience our Dyna range at an attractive price point. At Harely-Davidson India, we will continue to adopt and invest in strategies that make our products and ownership experience accessible to more enthusiasts and customers in India," Anoop Prakash, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson India, told presspersons here.

The new motorcycle has a 1585 CC engine with a six-speed cruise drive transmission and a fuel tank capacity of 18.8 litre. Harley Davidson India, which started operations in 2009, offers 13 models that are available at its nine authorised dealers in the country. The company will open its tenth showroom in Goa by the year-end and another three next year in Jaipur, Indore and Pune, Prakash said.

The company sold around 1,000 units last year (2011 calendar) and it expects to close this year with double that number, he added.
