Urge President Donald Trump to oppose the Office of United States Trade Representative's proposal to place 100 percent tariffs on motorcycles imported from the European Union in the E.U. - U.S. beef hormone trade dispute. The tariff would affect motorcycles with an engine size between 51cc and 500cc, which includes a vast range of off-road machines and many entry level street bikes and scooters.
CORVA and other OHV advocates, oppose the proposed tariff, because we believe trade disputes residing within the boundaries of the agricultural industry should not be solved with trade sanctions levied against non-agricultural products. Further, the impact of this tariff increase will have a cascading effect through the motorcycle industry, consumers and those linked to either the consumers or the industry.
Affected manufacturers include: 1) Aprilla; 2) Beta; 3) BMW; 4) Ducati; 5) Fantic; 6) Gas Gas; 7) Husqvarna; 9) KTM; 10) Montesa; 11) Piaggio; 12) Scorpa; 13) Sherco; 14) TM; and 15) Vespa.
