Default MC sales thru Q2

Off Highway bikes the only style to have increased.

..................2013................2012........ .....%Change
DUAL.........16,517.............17,096............ ...-3.4%
OFF-HWY....38,277.............36,300................5. 4%
ON-HWY....183,332............193,531.............-5.3%
SCOOTER....17,691.............23,064.............-23.3%
TOTAL........255,817...........269,991............ .-5.2%
ATV...........106,686...........110,585........... ...-3.5%

Neither Harley nor Polaris makes highway bikes, yet both have stocks that have about doubled over the course of the last year.

They must be selling a lot of t-shirts

BMW Motorrad has released its second quarter report and things are looking very good for the propeller brand. During the second quarter of 2013, BMW sold a record-breaking 34,816 units world-wide, up 15.5% over the same period in 2012. Through the first six months of 2013 BMW has delivered 64,941 total units, marking the best second quarter and six-month sales records in the brand’s 90-year history.

For the first six months of 2008, shipments of Harley-Davidson motorcycles were 152,194 units, a 6.6 % decrease compared to shipments of 162,878 units during the first six months of 2007.

During the first six months (of 2013), this year's total worldwide sales figures are a bit smaller than those recorded in the first half of 2012: 144,447 versus 145,391, respectively.

IOW, sales are down 12% compared to sales six years ago.

Good info
Are we at a point where the market is flooded with bikes
Or is this because the economy is not that great
Lack of disposable income

I tend to think once the market is flooded with bikes there is only a small percentage of people willing to drop big bucks on a new bike. Considering the bike they currently have may be paid for......

I tried to help those numbers out. I bought a new 2013 Suzuki King Quad 750 30th Anaversary addition.

What else can I do!!!

Good job saddlebag. I agree the market is flooded. Women came on board a few years ago buying and riding and some of them no longer want a bike. So they are trying to sell. I am glad I am not in the motorcycle industry right now. Dog eat dog world when it comes to sells.
