Default Some Husqvarnas Models to be Built in India

Surely a trend of things to come for the Husqvarna and KTM dirt bike models. Another reason to buy a GASGAS made in Salt, Espana.

Doesn't it go....a Swedish, Italian, German, Austrian, bike now sometimes built in India with a brief past in Taiwan . I have two of the Italian built and really like them. The Huskabergs look good but I'm not a KTM ergo/handling fan.

Kawasaki's entry level Ninja models are made there too. Interesting. Gas Gas engines are coming with India made bearings, I'd guess that globalization is something the industry will see more of. Lower labor costs is a huge factor in either making a profit, or hitting a MSRP target to boost market penetration. After all, they are toys...
