Off-Road motorcycle sales fall by 2.4% | News

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries has released data revealing off-road motorcycle sales for the first nine months of 2019 fell 2.4 per cent compared with the same period last year.

The motorcycle market as a whole experienced a drop of 8% with scooters being the only segment to defy the trend, growing 14.5% during the first nine months of this year. Honda was the overall leader with a 23.1% market share of the national market, followed by Yamaha with 21% and Kawasaki with 10.6%.

In the off-road world, Yamaha now leads the segment with 28.1% market share, followed by Honda with 27.4%, and KTM with 18.8%. Yamaha’s position as market-leader represents a change in the order, with Honda falling from the top spot after leading the off-road market at the end of June.

The Kawasaki KLX110 was the best selling off-road model overall, selling 1189 units, an increase of 49.6% compared to the same period last year.

Yamaha moved 909 units, an 11.4% increase compared to the same period last year.

KTM still dominated the enduro category despite not owning the top spot. Four of the five best selling enduro bikes were orange. The 300 EXC TPI was the Austrian brand’s best selling enduro bike, even after shifting 21.1% fewer units compared to the same period last year.

Yamaha owned the top spot in the motocross category with the YZ250F, which topped its bigger brother, the YZ450F.
