Harley could face ruin in Europe in less than two months, as from June 1st, a massive 56% import tariff is being slapped on them. Holy shit. .... They are expensive enough as it is.
Jochen Zeits, the CEO, says it's unprecedented, and very real harm. :(

This is the latest fallout from an escalating trade war between the old sparring partners of the United States and the European union.
This does seem to go against free trade in my opinion. The irony is though, that back in 1983, Reagan enacted a 1000% tariff on Jap bikes.
Why can't we all just get on?
(As the UK leaves the EU) haha.....
Hey .... maybe the prices will be the same in the UK, as we have left the EU? Interesting times.

If this causes the price of my scotch to skyrocket again, I'll storm the UN with pitchforks and torches!

Bruh .....
It's all PC now and health and safety.
The storming has to be booked in advance, full ppe, and the pitchforks will need corks on the end.
Torches, of course, will need to be battery operated.
