Harley-Davidson says it’s pulling its Harley-Davidsons from Canada
Posted On July 7, 2021
A U.S. company that makes the popular Harley-Davey motorcycle has announced that it will no longer manufacture motorcycles in the country.
The Harley-davidson brand, which goes by the brand name Harley- Davidson, has been a major force in Canada’s motorcycle industry for decades, selling more than 300,000 motorcycles in Canada every year, according to the Canadian Press.
Harley-Damas has a long history in Canada, and has a strong presence in the industry in cities like Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, and Montreal.
The company says it will be pulling the motorcycles from the country after more than two decades of operations in Canada.
“As a company, we are very disappointed to see our company in Canada fall into such a sad and unfortunate state,” a spokesperson for Harley-DAVIDY, Harley- Davidson’s Canadian operations, told the Canadian press.
“We are extremely grateful for the amazing support and collaboration we have received from our friends and partners in Canada and the United States, and we will continue to do everything in our power to support Harley-Davis and the Canadian community.”
The announcement comes as Canada is facing an economic downturn and the Conservative government has pledged to cut the budget deficit.
Canada is a popular destination for Harley Davidson motorcycle enthusiasts, who make up about 10% of the company’s worldwide sales.
“Horse riding is an exciting and challenging lifestyle and we know that our loyal customers appreciate the expertise and dedication of our team of skilled and skilled workers, and look forward to our continued contributions to the riding community and the great Canadian culture that we all love,” Harley Davidson said in a statement.
“In the coming weeks, we will be re-evaluating the direction of our operations in our Canadian headquarters, and, as part of that process, we look forward, as always, to welcoming our customers back to Canada.”
Harley-da’s stock has been on a steady upward climb in recent years, but has seen a decline this year, and the company was down nearly 30% on Tuesday.
