“Road motorcycles accounted for 42.7 per cent of the 75,848 sales. Off-road motorcycles accounted for 32.2 per cent of sales, ATVs accounted for 19.8 per cent and scooters accounted for 5.3 per cent,” Mr Weber said.

Yamaha saw their share of the roadbike market grow markedly thanks to the presence of new learner legal models such as the MT-07.
