amount to a total of 13,536 vehicles (previous year: 11,665 units).
This corresponds to an increase in sales of 16%.
Heiner Faust, Director of Sales and Marketing at BMW Motorrad:
"Following the successful start into the new year we have
achieved a significant plus of 18.3 % in sales in February. With a
total of 8.098 vehicles sold, this February is the fourth
record-selling February in company history in succession. Worldwide
demand was satisfyingly high.”
The water-cooled R 1200 GS still remains the top selling bike in
the BMW Motorrad range at the beginning of the year, too. The newly
developed successor models of the R 1200 GS Adventure and the R
1200 RT, which have been on sales since the beginning of February,
follow on the heels of the R 1200 GS. From the middle of March
customers have two more dynamic new products in the Roadster segment
to choose from: the R NineT and the S 1000 R. The C evolution electric
scooter will supplement the BMW Motorrad product range from May.
In conclusion Faust states: "Expectations for the season
are optimistic based on our customers' positive reactions and due to
the successful sales figures of the first two months of the year."
