Harley-Davidson Finally Opening Shop in Saigon?

For a country with a motorbike obsession, this counts as huge news - iconic American motorcycle maker, Harley-Davidson, is finally opening a showroom in Vietnam according to a set of job postings on Vietnamworks (hat tip to Vietnam 720 for finding them).

The company, America's most legendary motorcycle brand, will open a store in "late 2013" (the job descriptions peg the start date at October), its first in Vietnam according to the listings.

Openings include: HR and Logistics, Marketing Executive & PA To The General Director and Merchandise Manager.

While the company hasn't formally released any information about the opening, these job listings are a pretty telling sign.

We've contacted Harley-Davidson for a confirmation and will update this article when/if we get additional information.
