Not all is good in EV Land. Nio, a Chinese electric-car manufacturer vying to become the next Tesla (TSLA) has fallen on hard times.

Shares of Harley-Davidson Inc. fell 0.7% in morning trading Monday, after KeyBanc Capital analyst Brett Andress turned bearish on the motorcycle maker, citing concerns over competition from Polaris Inc.'s Indian brand of bikes. Andress cut his rating on Harley's stock to underweight, after being at sector weight since August 2017, and set his price target at $33, which is 15.5% below current levels. "Indian's new Challenger bike is aimed squarely at [Harley's] dominant Road Glide ([about] 80% share of 32K-unit market)," Andress wrote in a note to clients. "Indian introduced the Challenger bike on Oct. 29 to immediate fanfare and, on paper, the bike surpasses its competition in almost every important metric (primarily a new liquid-cooled engine), a setup we view as likely to disrupt a rather complacent status quo." Polaris's stock rose 0.9% in morning trading. Andress estimates the new competition could drive an earnings-per-share headwind of about 25 cents. Harley's stock has rallied 14.5% year to date, while Polaris shares have surged 30.4% and the S&P 500 has gained 23.0%.
Unexpectedly strong sales in Asia lifted the stock in the motorcycle manufacturer last month, but KeyBanc now sees downside.

Harley's Road Glide bike, which represents 15% to 20% of Harley's U.S. retail units, may weigh on mix and gross profit into 2020.
