If you're importing a Harley-Davidson Street 750 from India as a private person you probably end up with 63 percent on duty and tax (maybe even more).
Thailand and India have a free-trade-agreement, and while motor vehicles are on the exception list and do not quality for zero reduction, a motorcycle as CKD (complete knock down), shipped as parts to a licensed automotive assemble plant in Thailand could create a much lower price per unit.
The thing is that we will only know what the real price for the Harley-Davidson Street 750 is when it will be officially launched in Thailand.

It's been suggested on another bike site that, in fact, there would still be a 60% tariff for the Street 750 (as outlined in the 'Integrated Tariff Database'. Therefore the actual price would be closer to 345,000 baht.
Or does the 'Free Trade Agreement', if it applies to this bike, negate the 60% tariff?
If the Harley-Davidson Street 750 will be sold in Thailand for around 345,000 THB it would be the cheapest big bike cruiser available in the market. The Kawasaki Vulcan 900 costs something like 495,000 THB, and while the new Yamaha Bolt 950 is a bit cheaper, the Harley-Davidson would still be more than 100,000 THB cheaper....
