Way to go Kochi. Now almost all brands have set up shop in Kochi I guess. Meanwhile heard that the Porsche dealership is wrapping up their operation?

I had visited SPICE COAST HARLEY KOCHI on 29-09-12. I was really astonished by the crowd over there. Never before I have seen so much people in an automobile showroom at around 7 pm.

I had gone with my parents and wifey to enquire about Iron 883. To my astonishment they told me a waiting period of 5 months and promised me a delivery date in Feb

Kerala has a lot of 'Dubai Money'. So, every luxury marquee is present there. To much of Keralites' credit, they do spend the Dianrs they earn on Mercedes and HDs as well.

So, great news for all the local folks

True that, and it also shows in the prices of used market. Honda and Toyota command some sorta premium over other makes. All the best for Kochi HD Lovers now that there is a showroom closer to their place.

While I totally love the name, the photo makes it appear as though the tin roof will blow away with the faintest hint of of breeze. Need to go check the showroom myself. Have they started deliveries?

HD dealer development dept has guidelines on showroom plan/decor/materials used for construction of a HD showroom. Collectively known as corporate identity norms.

And the showroom looks a lot better in reality.

Edit: Actual location is Maradu/Kundannur Jn on NH47 byepass.

Harley has definitely adopted the most aggressive marketing strategy we have seen in the luxury segment in a really long time. Their slow but steady market penetration with top class brand building techniques is definitely going to yield a long term stay for them in India.
