As a motorcyclist, how do you feel about losing a choice in bike brand because of a tariff war over beef?
Well, it could happen. A U.S. trade official is seeking a 100 percent tariff on some European motorcycles as part of a trade dispute over hormones in U.S. beef.
Ridiculous? We agree!
This tax would apply to any European motorcycle between 51cc and 500cc. It could affect KTM off-road bikes, smaller displacement BMWs, Piaggio scooters, Sherco trials bikes and more.
We must act now to fight this proposal. The U.S. agency has imposed a Jan. 30 deadline for comments. Please donate to this cause. All proceeds will be used to fight this ridiculous tax on European motorcycles and defend your right to ride and race.
