    Here is the story. Apparently selling their motorcycles in the Indian market was a losing proposition:

    That looks a lot like a BMW G310R.

    As much as HD has never been my cup of tea, I would always hope they succeed,,.
    I know when I'm out touring a large percentage of bikes are HD any where you go,, perhaps 50%,, so folks are enjoying them,,.
