How to print image file so that it blends with 100% black

enter image description here

Trying to figure out how to print this image of a motorcycle so that it doesn’t have this halo effect (if thats what its called) when printed on top of 100% K. Tried a few different things but nothing seems to make much of a difference and it just clearly sits on top of the black without blending at all.


The black in the bike needs to match the background black.

If the background is 100% K, the bike needs to also be 100%k.

If the background is 40C0M0Y100K, then the bike needs to be 40C0M0Y100K

It may be easier to just add a transparency gradient to the bottom of the bike rather than adding a black gradient.
