Steel Sword Hangs Over Harley in Tariff Dispute
Harley-Davidson is expected to suffer if the U.S. tariff on steel is ruled to be in violation of international rules on trade. If, as expected, the tariff is ruled to be improper in a World Trade Organization hearing next week, the European Union has said it will respond with its own tariffs, an action that could double the price of the U.S. goods targeted. Harley as a high-profile American company is expected to be hit with the trade tax, along with textiles and citrus fruit. The V-Rod is the best-seller among the 22,000 motorcycles Harley expects to sell in Europe this year.
