The first batch of ever so awaited BMW motorcycles will be reaching the Indian shores in December 2010. The two importers Deutsche Motoren of Delhi and Navnit Motors in Mumbai and Bangalore will be the first ones to be responsible for the sale of the German make bikes. BMW plans to get its lineup from R and K series in India. The most loved S 1000RR BMW superbike and the BMW R 1200 GS will also be coming to India in the coming months. All these bikes that will be shipped to India will be manufactured at the BMW Motorrad Berlin plant and supplied as CBU (completely built up) units. The price tag that the mean machines will boast of hasn’t yet been made public but will soon be announced as the release dates approach.
“The BMW Group has already established itself very successfully in India with a local BMW automobile production and a sales network for BMW Group automobiles,” said Hendrik von Kuenheim, BMW Motorrad director. “Now the market for premium motorcycles is beginning to develop, too. The sales activities now commencing with our two experienced BMW Group partners are of long-term significance to BMW Motorrad. We are confident our motorcycles will swiftly become established in timely preparation for the growing market.”
