Harley-Davidson is working on a new strategy to increase profit by curbing motorcycle production and costs, and Chief Executive Officer Jochen Zeitz is scaling back overseas expansions, eliminating slow-selling models and lowering inventory at bike dealers to sharpen Harley's focus on best-selling models in markets with strongest sales. Harley-Davidson said it will exit 39 overseas markets with low sales and rely on distributors to sell its motorcycles in 17 countries, including India, where Harley-Davidson has an assembly plant.

On October 27, 2020, Harley-Davidson announced that India's Hero MotoCorp will sell and service Harley's bikes in India. And under a licensing agreement with Hero, Harley-Davidson will also allow Hero to develop and sell motorcycles under the Harley-Davidson brand. Under Zeitz's new vision, the American motorcycle brand will concentrate on about 50 markets, primarily in North America, Europe and parts of Asia. These markets generate a large share of the company's sales and offer the best potential for growth. Harley-Davidson says it has closed down 61 full-line dealerships, or about 4 per cent of its dealer network.
