(Reuters) – Harley-Davidson Inc reported a 26.7 percent fall in quarterly profit on Tuesday, hit by a slide in sales in the United States and higher costs from European tariffs on imports of its motor bikes.
The company said its net income fell to $127.9 million, or 80 cents per share, in the first quarter ended March 31 from $174.76 million, or $1.03 per share, a year earlier.
Revenue from motorcycles and related products fell 12.3 percent to $1.19 billion.
