Road Motorcycle Sales

Road bike sales experienced a hefty 19.2 per cent downturn. This equates to almost 2000 less motorcycles hitting the road in the first quarter of this year compared to 2018.

While Honda has done well this quarter in regards to dirt-bike and scooter sales, they have taken a big hit to their road market share, with sales down 37.9 per cent. In fairness, Big Red did have a killer start to 2018, but still, almost 800 less Honda road bikes have hit the road in the first quarter of 2019 compared to 2018.

Thus despite their own further 17.8 per cent reduction in sales, Harley-Davidson are once again the biggest selling road going motorcycles in Australia.

Yamaha fared better with only an 8 per cent decline in road sales, good enough to move them up to #2 in the road bike rankings, ahead of Honda.

Kawasaki and Suzuki were down a similar amount to Yamaha, and rank fourth and fifth respectively in regards to road bike volume.

BMW come in just behind Suzuki on road sales but are down 22.9 per cent compared to Q1 2018 and remain the leading European brand in Australia. Triumph are down by a similar amount to seventh while KTM continued to out-do Ducati in the Australian market. The Austrian brand down 10.2 per cent while Ducati fell by 14.4 per cent.

Indian round out the top ten ahead of newcomer to the road market Husqvarna.

Every single brand experienced a contraction in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the sales figures from the first three months of 2018.
