India is quickly becoming a motorcycle manuf mecca. KTM, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and others are utilizing India's vast amount of people as well as some of the engineering stars emerging. There are some very brilliant engineers coming out of India. We see images of the slums and poverty but overlook the fact that they are a highly industrialized nation. All made possible by American foreign investment due to cheaper labor. Thanks to NAFTA, we're losing the advantage we once had. I own a 2017 KTM 500 made in India and it is the crux of development for off-road dual sport bikes. Nothing comes close to it's performance. KTM saw the advantage over Austrian manuf offered by India.
