Nineteen percent of Harley-Davidson’s sales were to Europe in the first fiscal quarter of 2018, according to the company’s earnings release.

“Import tariffs on steel and aluminum will drive up costs for all products made with these raw materials, regardless of their origin,” company officials said in a statement. “Additionally, a punitive, retaliatory tariff on Harley-Davidson motorcycles in any market would have a significant impact on our sales, our dealers, their suppliers and our customers in those markets.”
