International retail sales rose 2.7 percent versus a year ago while the decline in U.S. retail sales fell 3.6 percent. Motorcycle shipments were down 5.8 percent year-to-date to 45,837.

Harley says it saved $16.7 million in the quarter as a result of its manufacturing optimization initiative, which included closing facilities in Australia and Kansas City, Missouri. As a result of the initiative, Harley expects to save $25 million to $30 million in 2019 and $65 million to $70 million annually after 2020.
