Harley-Davidson Moves Some Production Out of US After Tariffs

Harley-Davidson Moves Some Production Out of US After Tariffs



Each motorcycle will cost an average of $2,200 extra after the European Union raised its tariff on imported U.S. bikes to 31% from 6% on June 22, Harley-Davidson said.


Jun 25, 2018

Harley-Davidson Inc. plans to shift some production of its iconic motorcycles out of the U.S. in response to retaliatory European Union tariffs, as President Donald Trump’s trade war ripples back to American companies.

Each motorcycle will cost an average of $2,200 extra after the European Union raised its tariff on imported U.S. bikes to 31% from 6% on June 22, the Milwaukee-based manufacturer said Monday in a regulatory filing. That’s expected to add up to a burden of $90 million to $100 million annually, which Harley-Davidson will absorb rather than pass extra costs on to customers.
