A month ago, we relayed a Reuters report that Harley-Davidson was expected to submit a bid for Ducati, which the Volkswagen Group is interested in selling. Reuters sources now contradict this.
Apparently put off by the high price, Reuters’ sources indicate Harley did not submit a bid. For the first time, however, Polaris Industries (owners of the Indian Motorcycle Brand) was identified as a bidder. It appears there will be another round of bidding among select participants. Take a look at the full Reuters’ report for more information on the bidding process. It may be a while before we know of Ducati’s fate.
