Road motorcycles continue to be a popular choice in 2015

Road motorcycles continue to be a popular choice in 2015, with Australians purchasing 10,749 new road motorcycles in the third quarter of 2015—bringing the year-to-date total to 32,437.

The 32,437 sales represent a 1.1 per cent increase of on YTD road motorcycles sales to September 2014.

Releasing the 2015 third quarter motorcycle sales figures, FCAI Chief Executive Tony Weber said Australians purchased 75,848 new motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and scooters between January and September 2015, down 2.5 per cent in comparison to the same period in 2014.

“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.

“Harley-Davidson led the volume race in the road motorcycle market, selling 21 per cent of the total road motorcycles sold. Harley-Davidson was followed by Honda with 16.7 per cent of the market, followed by Yamaha with 15.4 per cent.”

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