Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. agreed to buy Detlev Louis Motorradvertriebs GmbH, a motorcycle apparel and accessories retailer in Germany, for 400 million euros ($452 million) as the company expands in Europe.

Ute Louis, the widow of founder Detlev Louis, sold the Hamburg-based company to a subsidiary of Berkshire, according to an e-mailed statement Friday from law firm Beiten Burkhardt, which advised on the sale alongside Kupferberg Transactions. The retailer approached Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire, the law firm said. Debbie Bosanek, Buffett’s assistant, confirmed the price in an e-mail.
