American bike-maker UM Global, is set to tie up with a local two-wheeler manufacturer to produce its bikes in India, with a planned roll out from its own facility in April 2015.

While the local player, whose name is yet to be announced, will take care of the assembly in the first phase of operations, UM will handle the imports, R&D, branding and dealerships. The bikes will not be fully CKD, says the company’s Director, Rajeev Mishra. Up to 50 percent local content would be present, he added, stating that the company has already lined up suppliers.
