Indian-Made Harley-Davidson Rumored to Actually Be a 750cc Bike

The November fog is still to be expected here, but things are a bit fuzzy already, at least when it comes to the India-made smaller Harley-Davidson. After many months of rumors on a half-liter v-twin bikes, Autocar India publishes rather strange scoop on what they call a "healthy 750cc" bike.

H-D's new Indian machine is also rumored to pack round 53 hp, with belt final drive, and a top speed in the 150 km/h (93 mph) area, with single-disc brakes on the 17" wheels.

It appears like Autocar has some inside info, or this is what they want us to believe. In case the Indian H-D is indeed a 750cc bike, this means that the MoCo is not exactly going “popular”, with a true small-to-middleweight machine.

This could in turn mean, that they're not exactly sure on the success such a bike (the rumored 500cc) will have in markets outside India. That is because we doubt they're too eager to build a small cruiser for the local customers and several other markets in the area, and a bike with enough displacement might be easier to sell in Harley-Davidson's traditional customer pools.
