Harley Davidson to move some plants out of US

Harley-Davidson plans to shift a portion of its U.S. motorcycle manufacturing capacity to foreign markets after a trade spat between President Donald Trump and the European Union led to increased tariffs.

The Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer said Monday in a public filing that the move is necessary to preserve its second-biggest sales market.

The company did not specify whether it would close any U.S. plants or lay off any workers. But when Harley recently mapped out plans to shift some production to a new factory in Thailand, the company announced it would close its plant in Kansas City and add some jobs at a facility in York, Pa.
