Harley-Davidson, facing rising costs from new tariffs, will begin shifting the production of motorcycles heading for Europe from the United States to factories overseas.

The famed motorcycle maker said in a regulatory filing on Monday that European Union tariffs on its motorcycles exported from the US jumped from 6 percent to 31 percent.

No price hike planned

Harley-Davidson Inc. said that it will not raise its prices due to "an immediate and lasting detrimental impact to its business in the region."
