Harley-Davidsons to be made by China's Geely with eye on Asia

US motorcycle giant contracts production outside for first time

NEW YORK -- Harley-Davidson is developing smaller motorcycles with a Chinese partner in an attempt to cultivate new markets as ridership in the U.S. and Europe stalls.

The U.S. motorcycle maker announced Wednesday that it signed an agreement with Qianjiang Motorcycle, which will produce the new model at Qianjiang plants in China. This is the first time Harley has ever contracted production out to an outside partner.
