Harley Davidson launches first Concept Store in India
Harley Davidson India wants to venture in to Tier II and Tire III cities with these concept store.
Harley Davidson India inaugurated its first concept store in India, Warrior Harley Davidson in Kolhapur. Warrior Harley Davidson germinated from an idea to design a small store which accommodates all Customer Experience concepts in small forms. This unique concept store format is a platform for the brand to reach out to existing customer base in Tier III cities that do not have retail presence. The concept store is designed to improve accessibility for sales and service requirements of customers residing in the city and outskirts and ensure that they get an opportunity to be part of H.O.G. events. Warrior Harley-Davidson® is located at Mokshaa Motorbike Company Private Ltd. 1/B2 NH4A/P Sarnobatwadi, Taluka – Karveer, Kolhapur.
Commenting on the launch of the company’s first concept store in India, Marc McAllister, VP and MD International Markets at Harley Davidson Motor Company, said “Our focus has always been on developing the culture of leisure motorcycling in India. We expect the next level of our growth to come in from Tier II and III cities and expansion to these markets is an important part of our strategy. Our first concept store is step in the same direction by taking the brand closer to enthusiasts and giving them an opportunity to experience the lifestyle.”
Sunil Christian, Dealer Principal, Warrior Harley Davidson, said, “Kolhapur is a city with great potential with close to 100 Harley riders residing in and around the city. Expanding retail presence to Kolhapur was a natural next step for the brand. We are thrilled to inaugurate Harley Davidson’s first ever concept store in India here. The store houses a bike display, PA & GM display, a customer lounge and service set-up – all within an area of 3000 sq. ft. This will be a one-of-its-kind store in the country for riders, in and around the city, to foster their passion for motorcycles.”
