President Donald Trump continues to be hard on with the trade war with other countries. Harley-Davidson Motorcycle are now feeling the heat for their products. According to new tariffs plans in the European countries, each fine tuned Harley-Davidson Motorcycle is going to cost another extra by about $2,200.
This price increase in Europe will pave the way for the Harley-Davidson Motorcycles to lose their grounds to such as Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha. So the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle decided to move some of their plants to Europe to overcome the tax problem.
Already they have manufacturing plants in Brazil, India, Australia and Thailand.
But this decision by them had made the American president Donald Trump to take the Twitter to put on a war against them. President Donald Trump taunted Harley-Davidson on Twitter, saying, "Now that Harley-Davidson is moving part of its operation out of the U.S., my Administration is working with other Motor Cycle companies who want to move into the U.S. Harley customers are not happy with their move - sales are down 7% in 2017. The U.S. is where the Action is!"
But many industrial analysts say that lot of people like the American Harley Davidson motorcycles. But they don't care whether it was made in USA or in other country. They only want a perfect Harley motorcycle.
Harley-Davidson would not comment on Trump's tweets or its declining sales. But Michael Pflughoeft, communications director for the company, confirmed that all motorcycles made overseas are sold overseas. The company is shutting down a Kansas City, Missouri, factory and transferring those operations to York, Pennsylvania.
So let's wait and see who is right and who is wrong in the long run.
