Duck: Falling Rupee
« on: August 30, 2013, 05:25:26 AM »
It looks like the rupee is falling relative to the dollar.  Does that put any pressure on the prices for new REs in the states?  Will parts prices be affected?  How long does it take for monetary adjustments to show up in a retail market? ???

If anything, the bikes and spare parts should be 15-20% cheaper, but we will never see that happen given the low volumes and niche market outside India.

New Bentley?
I figured he would be more interested in one of these Bentleys.
