bit of a crap article, but I think the trade war is going to be an issue that will have many underlying impacts on all of us!

A lot of Triumphs are also built in Thailand now too (including the 765).

I knew the Bonnies have been for some time, didn't realise the 765 was coming out of there too. What still comes out of Hinckley?

Its like the car industry cars and components come from all over the place, difficult to see how these tariffs will work effectively

The tarrifs just mean everyone pays more for everything, is a false inflation!
