Harley-Davidson motorcycles had tied up with Hero MotoCorp in October last year for distribution rights of its bikes on sale in India, after the US-based two-wheeler manufacturer decided to shut down operations here. Hero MotoCorp now has 12 Harley-Davidson dealers across India and also increased the number of touch-points.

"We will be soon making an announcement on the commencement of the retail sales of Pan America 1250 in the country. We will share further details at that time," a Hero MotoCorp spokesperson was quoted by PTI.

Hero MotoCorp is also planning to launch premium motorcycles to be sold under the Harley-Davidson brand in India. The Indian two-wheeler manufacturer hopes its tie-up with Harley-Davidson will speed up its presence in the premium bike segment where it aims to establish a complete portfolio.

Hero MotoCorp is currently the leader in the segment which has motorcycles with 100cc 110cc engines. Hero is also planning to launch electric two-wheelers, both in the mass and premium segments, soon.
