Another record year in 2021
With 332,881 motorcycles (previous year: 270,407) sold in the 2021 financial year, PIERER Mobility achieved its 11th record year in a row and a sales volume increase of 23%.
In Europe, the sales volume was around 120,000 motorcycles and about two thirds of the motorcycles (approx. 210,000) were sold in the markets outside Europe, and in particular North America, India and Australia.
