Munich. In February, BMW Motorrad again delivered more motorcycles to its customers all over the world than in the previous year with sales at 6.841 vehicles (previous year: 6.720 units), a growth of 1.8 %. In February, BMW Motorrad sold 12.078 motorcycles (previous year: 11.434), or 5.6 % more than in the first two months of last year.
Hendrik von Kuenheim, General Director BMW Motorrad: “As seen at the global level, the trends on the motorcycle markets are very much mixed. Whereas the South European markets are suffering under economic uncertainties, those in Germany, the USA, Brazil, and France are booming. Despite these varying market trends, BMW Motorrad is targeting to break sales to its record year of 2011. At the moment we are 5.6 % above the previous year’s figures. In view of the very strong growth we had already experienced in January and February 2011, this is a highly encouraging result. Our motorcycle range is being met with a sustained high level of acceptance all over the world. Now the new BMW Maxi Scooters are on the verge of their launch. We expect an additional boost to growth from these two models.”
In February, Husqvarna Motorcycles delivered 916 motorcycles (previous year: 902 units) to its dealer network, 1.5% more than in February 2011. In the first two months deliveries totalled 1.460 vehicles, 196 vehicles more than in the previous year period. This corresponds to an increase of 15.5%.
