(Bloomberg) -- Harley-Davidson Inc., an American icon that’s taken heat from the White House for expanding overseas and retrenching at home, is teaming with a Chinese company to gain greater traction in Asia.The manufacturer signed an agreement with China’s Zhejiang Qianjiang Motorcycle Co. to develop two new motorbike models that will sell under the Harley brand, according to a statement filed with the Shenzhen stock exchange. The two aim to field the first bike in China by the end of next year and may sell the models in other markets including Thailand, Indonesia and India.Harley has been forced to stray from its roots due to a shrinking U.S. motorcycle market, contributing to what’s been a bumpy ride for the Milwaukee-based manufacturer during Donald Trump’s presidency. Chief Executive Officer Matt Levatich went from being one of the first company leaders to be welcomed to the White House in early 2017 to contending with angry tweets about closing a U.S. factory and adding production overseas to avoid tariffs.Levatich decided to shut an assembly plant in Missouri last year as U.S. sales continued to slump. Harley meanwhile began production at a factory in Thailand as part of a plan to sidestep tariffs and boost sales abroad.The maker of big bikes long colloquially referred to as Hogs is rolling out a series of smaller models in a bid to get half of revenue from outside the U.S. by 2027.Qianjiang is a unit of billionaire Li Shufu’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, whose assets include automaker Volvo Cars. Qianjiang plans to start selling a 338cc small displacement motorcycle in China with Harley by the end of next year before marketing it in other Asian countries, Geely said in a statement Wednesday. Qianjiang took over Italian motorcycle company Benelli in 2005.Shares of Qianjiang jumped as much as 6.4%, the biggest intraday gain since May 8, and were up 2.1% at 9:46 a.m. in Shenzhen. Harley fell 0.2% to $34.91 in New York on Wednesday.(Updates Qianjiang shares in seventh paragraph.)\--With assistance from Emma Dong, Qi Ding, Gabrielle Coppola and Tian Ying.To contact the reporter on this story: Kyle Lahucik in Southfield at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Craig Trudell at firstname.lastname@example.org, Chester DawsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Last July, the name hit my radar, trading in the $44 range, and at 12.5x forward earnings at the time. It is priced as a company in decline, and it is true that it is not the growth story it once was. Changing consumer preferences have made the name a bit less iconic to newer generations, who perhaps are not getting HOG tattoos at the same clip as prior generations.
The new motorcycle is one of the boldest moves yet by Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) to capitalize on the immense motorbike market overseas, where small engines are the norm.
Harley-Davidson Inc will partner with China's Qianjiang Motorcycle Co to build a new smaller motorcycle than its trademark "big hogs", making good on promises to move more production outside the United States that have angered President Donald Trump. Trump last year threatened to impose higher taxes on Harley after it made plans to move production for European customers overseas, part of a longer-term strategy for dealing with lower sales in the U.S. and higher costs because of trade tariffs. The partnership Harley outlined on Wednesday is aimed both at taking a bigger chunk of China's huge bike and moped market, while also fitting in with a plan to cut costs and source half of all sales outside the United States by 2027.

Tariffs are back in the news in a big way. President Donald Trump announced on Thursday -- via Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), naturally -- a 5% tariff on all goods entering the U.S. from Mexico. Mexican stocks fell on the news, with the iShares MSCI Mexico ETF (NYSEARCA:EWW) falling nearly 4% in early trading Friday. EU stocks tumbled overnight, though Chinese stocks, perhaps surprisingly, have held up somewhat well.Source: Shutterstock The new tariffs on Mexico -- which are slated to rise unless or until the country significantly slows migration into the U.S. -- are among several imposed by the Trump Administration. And while the various tariffs have made news, their impact on investors so far has been relatively muted.The fear now, as equities worldwide selloff, is that the new front on the trade war will be one too far. U.S. GDP projections for the second quarter have come down to a median estimate of 1.6%. China's economy likely is taking a hit. Growth in the Eurozone continues to be stagnant. There's certainly a sense that both a precarious global economy and wobbly equity markets could tip with the slightest push.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIn that context, it's worth understanding Thursday's news in the context of tariffs imposed so far. The new tariffs on Mexican goods aren't the biggest ones imposed -- yet.But that doesn't mean they won't be the most important or the most damaging. Trump Tariffs So FarIt took just over one year for the Trump Administration to start playing the tariff card. In January 2018, the U.S. imposed levies on solar panels (at a 30% rate) and washing machines (20%), citing significant injury to domestic producers. Those tariffs weren't targeted at China in particular, but given that the rising Asian giant manufactures the majority of the world's solar panels, China felt the biggest hit. * 10 Heavily Shorted Stocks to Sell -- Because the Bears Are Right Less than six weeks later, the Administration added steel and aluminum to the list. Four countries -- South Korea, Argentina, Australia and Brazil -- received permanent exemptions. The European Union, Mexico, and Canada were excluded on a temporary basis to allow for bilateral negotiations. On June 1, 2018, however, those countries were included as well. As part of negotiations over the USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement), this month tariffs were removed from Mexican and Canadian imports.From that point, the focus turned to China. China had retaliated against the steel and aluminum levies with tariffs of its own. In May 2018, both countries agreed to put the trade war on hold to continue negotiations. When talks failed, the US implemented new tariffs on some $50 billion of goods in two separate moves.In September, the U.S. added another $200 billion in goods to the list, at a 10% rate that would rise to 25% by January 1, 2019. China again retaliated; a pause again was declared in December. Talks failed once more. The U.S., adhering to a deadline it had set, raised the rate to 25% in early May.Then, this week, Trump announced the 5% levy on all Mexican goods. That rate, too, could rise to 25% if the Mexican government doesn't meet unspecified, vague goals. Where We Sit NowFor all the noise about tariffs over the past eighteen months, it's mostly U.S.-China trade that is affected. The U.S. has levied tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods; China, in turn, has targeted $110 billion in U.S. products.The USMCA negotiations had led to the lifting of retaliatory tariffs by Canada and Mexico. Whether that will hold amid the new levies on Mexican imports remains to be seen. In the meantime, Mexico will see a 5% tariff beginning in July that will rise 5% each month through October to a potential maximum of 25%.The European Union has added its own tariffs on automobiles and motorcycles, which most notably have hit U.S. manufacturer Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG). There, too, talks appear to have broken down. Both sides additionally continue to argue over alleged airline subsidies, part of the broader battle between Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Airbus (OTCMKTS:EADSY).Admittedly, in the context of the global economy -- roughly $88 trillion in GDP -- even 25% tariffs on less than half a trillion dollars' worth of goods seems relatively minimal. Most countries have no part in the trade war. And hopes persist that the U.S., in particular, can negotiate new deals -- or back off from an escalating game of chicken.But in an interconnected world, tariffs can cause disruption. And at least on Friday, investors clearly are showing their discomfort with the surprise move toward Mexican products. Is This an Overreaction?It is worth pointing out that, for all the noise, tariffs haven't really impacted equities all that much. Chinese stocks clearly have taken a hit. Big names like Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) and Tencent Holdings (OTCMKTS:TCEHY) declined sharply toward the end of last year, and have weakened again of late. For Chinese plays, there's been a clear correlation between trade sentiment and stock prices.But elsewhere, the impact of tariffs on equities has been muted. EU stocks, using the Euro Stoxx 50 index, have rallied since Trump's election despite weak domestic economies. Even Mexican stocks are essentially flat. US equities occasionally have been shaky but have performed even more strongly.So far, trade wars and tariffs haven't really hit stocks. The December dip -- driven in part by trade concerns -- proved to be a buying opportunity. It's possible that recent declines may prove to be the same.But the broader, deeper fear is that even a seemingly small 5% tariff winds up being one step too far. The imposition of levies on Mexico during USMCA talks has raised questions about whether China can negotiate with a rival who may change its policy on a whim.The U.S. presidential election now is less than 18 months away; Trump's re-election prospects are roughly 50/50 at the moment, at least per betting markets. Might trade partners choose to simply wait out the current Administration in hopes of finding a new, more trade-friendly, replacement? * 7 Stocks to Buy for Monster Growth If tariff hikes continue through early 2021, equity markets are going to feel pressure. And some investors clearly are looking to get out ahead of that eventuality. It remains to be seen whether that's prudence, or an overreaction.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

The company operates in an industry undergoing a major structural shift due to a mismatch of preferences between generations. This has a direct impact on the company’s top line, which has been flat for the last 10 years, resulting in margin compression. The management seems to be acutely aware of what is happening, having put in motion a comprehensive business restructuring plan aimed at catapulting Harley-Davidson back to growth.

Harley-Davidson may be the biggest name in American motorcycles, but the U.S. market is aging and shrinking. The massive and growing markets of India and southeast Asia offer hope. But the legendary maker of big iron 'hogs' faces fierce competition and needs to make smaller and cheaper bikes that its most loyal fans might not recognize.
