Harley Davidson now has another dealer in China. Their first was in Beijing, this one’s in Shanghai. I’m still curious how they’ll do over there. Lots of restrictions from what I understand.
Harley Davidson press release:
Harley-Davidson opened its first authorized dealership in East China on Nov. 3, 2007 in Shanghai. Jim Ziemer, CEO of Harley-Davidson Inc., David Foley, Harley-Davidson Asia Inc.’s Managing Director for China, and Mr. Wan Jiwen, Manager of Shanghai Harley-Davidson, took part in a special ceremony activating an eye-catching flame-display of the well-known Harley-Davidson Bar & Shield logo.
The dealership in southwest Shanghai offers a range of the Company’s imported premium American-built motorcycles, Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories, and Harley-Davidson’s stylish MotorClothes apparel. Customers visiting the showroom will have an opportunity to sample the Harley-Davidson culture and spirit. Factory-trained personnel will be on hand to guarantee a genuine Harley-Davidson experience. Shanghai Harley-Davidson will share the fun, passion, and lifestyle of Harley-Davidson with all customers and enthusiasts.
“We are very excited to announce the official launch of Shanghai Harley-Davidson,” said Ziemer. “We look forward to getting to know Shanghai’s Harley-Davidson fans!”
