The ongoing battle between U.S. beef producers and the E.U. is, well, ongoing, and it seems certain that the imported, small-displacement motorcycle dealers are about to become part of the collateral damage. You see, The Powers That Be reckon that the best way to punish the European Union for not buying our beef is to slap a 100-percent tariff on 51 cc-to-500 cc imported motorcycles. That broad net is going to catch up almost all scooters, definitely the ones capable of safe highway speeds anyway, and it’s also going to hit the racers who depend on European manufacturers for their machines— on- and off-road alike. It’s going to affect Millennials, who tend to prefer the smaller rides as a matter of pragmatic frugality, and as a means to reduce their own contribution to our collective carbon footprint. As bad as all that is, the worst part is what is going to happen to the dealerships that rely on the sale of these machines to survive.
