    As Lord Tammerlain said, these bikes will be sold in India, so there is no transfer of jobs from America to India, just the creation of jobs in India.

    Sure there is a transfer... the assembly jobs.

    If the motorcycles are to be sold here, they need to be assembled... if they are to be sold in India, they STILL need to be assembled. Normally, they'd be assembled here. Instead, they are being assembled in India.

    India most likely has a high tariff on assembled transportation products in order to encourage the manufacture or at least assembly of those goods in India, without being assembled in India the price of those motorcycles would be very high, most likely resulting in very few sales. By providing kits for assembly in India, more motorcyles will be sold, employeing more americans.

    BMW, MB and most german automakers follow the same route when selling cars in quite a few countries.

    FYI, the jobs are not transferred if they would not have existed in the first place

    I don't care where the motorsickles are being sold, it still amounts to American jobs being shipped off to India.

    Regardless of this.

    Would you in the interests of fairness and "objectivity" you accused me of not having earlier. Recant your false statements regarding the costs of obamas trip?

    Or do you wish to continue propagating this falsity?

    Just wondering. Or was this the part that you restored honor?

    So, if something that would not sell, does sell, and the parts to make them are made in America, but they are assembled in India, so that both countries benefit, this somehow is not making jobs. Thank you for clearing this up.

    My statements, as to the cost of Obama's trip, aren't false.

    No, it's Indian jobs being created in India, there will be no jobs lost in America.

    One unconfirmed source from a foreign newspaper?

    Care to prove it sir?

    Again was this the part where "honor is restored"?

    Where do you get the idea that these bikes are going to be sold, strictly in India? 'Cause Lord Tammerlain says so?

    How many average Indians can afford a $20,000 Harley? Let's get real, for a minute.
