HD had a lot more problems than japanese competition. They were still building 40s tech bikes. They did come out with the vastly improved EVO design. But the japanese were actively dumping in the USA. Dumping was the justification for tariffs as I recall. No company can survive foreign companies dumping for long regardless of how competitive their products are.

In any case, Reagan was right to impose very specifically targeted import tarrifs.
