Solid Start To 2010 For Suzuki

Suzuki Motorcycles has posted solid results for the first half of 2010, claiming a number of top selling motorcycles and featuring strongly in the majority of sales categories.

According to the recent sales figures released by the FCAI, 48,842 motorcycles, scooters and ATVs were sold in the period 1 January to 30 June, 2010, a decline of 12.1 per cent when compared to the same period last year.

"As this data demonstrates, the first half of the year was quite tough for many manufacturers, including Suzuki," Perry Morison, General Manager, Motorcycles, Suzuki Australia said.

"Despite the decline however, we still experienced promising sales across the board."

"Our ATV sales were up on last year, due to the new fuel injection KingQuad 400 series and the growing acceptance of power steering models by farmers."

"The fuel injection RM-Z motocross models also experienced high sales, due in part to the great product reviews and the racing success these models have recently experienced.

"The introduction of two new Suzuki models, the GSX1250FA and the RMX450Z, in the first half of the year as well as a revamped Bandit 1250 also helped drive our sales."

Suzuki was the only Japanese distributer to record positive growth in ATV sales, with the all terrain vehicle category declining overall by 16 per cent in the first half of the year.

The street bike range continues to perform impressively with a 3.6 per cent increase in sales in the past three months and Suzuki maintaining its dominance in the sports touring category with the top three best-sellers and five models inside the top ten.

Suzuki's GSX-R powerhouses combined to take top spot in the supersport category, headed by the top selling 600cc supersport machine, the GSX-R600, which is also dominating the Australian Supersport Championship.

Another strong performer from the first half of 2010 was Suzuki's off-road line-up, with the DR-Z400SM Super Motard named the top selling motard in Australia and the DR-Z400E continuing its dominance in the enduro category, claiming top spot with 608 units sold making it the sixth best-selling motorcycle so far this year overall.

The DR200SE Trojan also retained its number one spot from 2009 in the Farm category, with the hardworking, value-packed bike selling 280 units so far this year, well clear of its closest competitor.

Motocross champions, the Suzuki RM-Z450 and the RM-Z250 both recorded positive growth in the past six months, posting a 49.1 and 27.8 per cent increase in sales respectively.

Suzuki is expecting to maintain a strong second half with competitive pricing and retail sales campaigns, as well as the early arrival of many 2011 models, including the best selling RM-Z450 and RM-Z250
