Harley-Davidson cuts dividend as coronavirus hits already-struggling sales

Sales fell 15.5% in the U.S. in the quarter and 20.7% internationally

The cash preservation plan lifted Harley shares, which have lost nearly half of its value so far this year, up 9% in premarket trading.

High price and a market demographic that doesn't exist

Harley-Davidson Inc is betting on electric motorcycles to attract the next generation of younger and more environmentally conscious riders to reverse declining U.S. sales.

Harley-Davidson trims profit forecast as sales slide in second quarter

The bike maker expects to ship 212,000 to 217,000 bikes globally this year
