Motorcycles Sales Figures

2019 YTD Road Motorcycle Sales Data

If any cold comfort can be taken in today’s release of the latest motorcycle sales figures for the Australian market it is that, despite the efforts of regulators to make obtaining a motorcycle licence as painful and expensive as possible, it is again the learner legal machines that are propping up the road motorcycle sales volume.

Honda CB125E leads the way

Honda’s affordable CB125E again led the way ahead of Yamaha’s MT-07L. Kawasaki’s Ninja 400 took third place ahead of Yamaha’s YZF-R3 and MT-09.

The chrome is still shining for Harley-Davidson with the big-bore breakout defying the overall negative trend to rank as Australia’s sixth biggest selling road motorcycle and earn the mantle once again as the country’s favourite cruiser style motorcycle.

Next best is the baby cruiser from Honda. The CMX 500 continues to do very well and Honda will be very pleased to have bested Harley’s Street 500 in the sales figures. 330 new CMX 500 machines hit the streets in the first six months of 2019 while in equal eighth with the Honda Grom was the H-D Street 500, that unlikely pairing registering 298 sales apiece while Yamaha’s MT-03LA rounded out the overall road-bike top ten.

Amongst the big-bore boy racer Superbikes Honda topped the charts with the CBR 1000 RR Fireblade by a handy margin. In fact, Fireblade sales almost doubled that of any of the other Japanese litre-bikes.  Ducati is making progress with V4 sales while the S 1000 RR also did reasonably well considering that BMW have been waiting a long time for stock of their latest model.

Scooter Sales Figures

Honda’s NSC110 is smashing it in the scooter market and along with Suzuki’s Address this pairing along are taking a hefty slice of the overall scooter sales in Australia.

Vespa continues to do pretty well while Yamaha’s new XMAX 300 is starting to grow in popularity.

It is so pleasing to see that Australian consumers have now almost completely shunned the cheap and nasty no-name shite that once sold in good numbers in this space, but now thankfully have died a natural death.

Honda has now established themselves as the clear market leader in scooter sales.
