Are there still any motorcycle manufacturers out there that haven't started selling in India or at least announced that they are planning to? Almost any self-respecting manufacturer has decided to enter this mega market. The last one to make their intentions known that they want to sell their high-end motorcycles is Polaris Open Polaris in a new window with their Victory Motorcycles Open link in a new window brand.

Polaris are not an unknown name in India, since they sell ATVs, but it'll be a first for Victory. Apparently the Victory motorcycles will be shipped to India, not built there (CBU - Completely Built Unit). Any unit that is not manufactured in India faces enormous import duties (about 110%), so much so that you can expect the already expensive motorcycle to double in price before it reaches the customer's hands.

So at those prices will it sell? Obviously it's not for every biker, but then neither are they for every biker in North America or Europe. Only people with a lot of disposal income, but that's a fast growing segment in India. But Victory will be competing in that market segment with the likes of Harley-Davidson, BMW and Ducati.
