The bulk of the layoffs will occur at Harley’s plants in Kansas City, Mo., and Menomonee Falls, Wis., the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Earlier rounds of layoffs affected workers at the plant on Route 30 in Springettsbury Township.

The company announced in April it was eliminating 118 jobs there and moving those positions to Kansas City where it consolidated production of its Softail motorcycles.
