He was talking to reporters while launching the Fat Bob bike, priced at 12.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The Fat Bob is the sixth Harley model to be assembled in the company's plant at Bawal in Haryana.

"The kind of enthusiasm we had received in a place like Kochi was the same as in any metro," Prakash said, adding that the Harley Rock Riders concert in places like Shillong and Guwahati were sold out.

He said the firm will clock cumulative sales of over 2,000 units by 2012 end. Harley started its India operations in 2010.
