Harley-Davidson's First Vietnam Dealership is Open for Business

World famous motorcycle maker, Harley-Davidson, opened its first showroom in Vietnam last weekend in District 7.

The showroom, located in Phu My Hung, opened its doors a day before the government lifted a ban on motorbikes with engines over 175cc.

Lawson Dixon, CEO of Harley-Davidson Saigon, said that it will offer up 27 different Harley models spanning 5 generations - Sportster, Dyna, Softail, VRSC, and Touring.

Prices will range from VND336 million (US$16,000) for an 883cc Sportster to VND1.17 billion for a 1,690cc Touring.

Lawson added that the bikes will be identical to those sold in the US and that there will be many customization options.

The showroom is operated by Al Naboodah International Vietnam, a branch of the UAE conglomerate. 

The company expects to open a showroom in Hanoi next year.

As cool as Harleys are, we shudder to think what it would be like to drive one in Saigon traffic.
