Fancy a Vespa scooter, a KTM dirt bike or perhaps the new BMW G310R? Well they might be about to get a lot more expensive if you live in the USA.
The Office of United States Trade Representative has proposed a 100% tariff on motorcycles between 50 and 500cc manufactured in the European Union. This is part of a long-running trade dispute because the EU has banned US meat from animals treated with growth hormones.
There isn't an obvious connection between bikes and beef and US dealerships will be hit. The US doesn't make many bikes in this category so the winners will be Japan, China & Korea.
