Indian Production in India

In the last week Polaris-Indian have announced building bikes in India (see link below), the motorcycle industry today is very incestuous with VW owning Ducati & selling it to Eicher (Royal Enfield) Triumph twins built-in Taiwan, Harley 500-750 in India, AJS and Zundapp in China, its understandable new growth markets not relying or ageing baby boomers and millions of bike orientated people ready to exploit, its got to work with the added advantage of the bikes get cheaper, the new Bonneville Triumph is a absolute bargain at $18,000. The picture above shows how it was when labour rates were cheaper in USA and manufacturers could turn a profit and sell everything they could make with a waiting list of a couple of years, hard to imagine now isnt it?
