    2017 6 monthly sales

    https://www.fcai.com.au/motorcycles/index/index/year/all/month/all/article/493

    The national motorcycle market produced a second quarter sales recovery to be 4.1 per cent down in the first half of 2017 compared with the same period in 2016, according to the latest data published by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries.

    Half-yearly sales for 2017 totalled 50,908 compared with 53,084 for the same January – June period in 2016. The April to June sales period recovered some of the ground lost in the first quarter of 2017 when sales dipped by 6.7 per cent, fuelling industry expectations for a positive second half outcome.

    Last year the Australian motorcycle industry recorded total sales of 114,783, its best annual result since 2009.

    Both the road and off-road segments declined during the first half of 2017 however, whilst road bikes are down 12.8 per cent, sales in the off-road segment recovered sharply in the second half and are now running only 1.7 per cent behind the YTD 2016 results.

    The ATV/SSV market has seen continued strong growth in the first half, producing a 12.3 per cent increase in sales over the same period in 2016.

    Scooter sales, which have been in decline for several years, continued that trend with a further fall of 14.4 per cent compared with Jan-June 2016.

    Harley Davidson narrowly retained its top-selling status overall among the road bikes with 4,433 sales for the first half, followed by Honda (4,201 sales) and Yamaha (2,865).

    The top-selling manufacturer in the off-road category was Yamaha with 4,617 sales. It was followed by Honda with 4,359 sales and KTM (2,834).

    Honda led the ATV segment with 3,658 sales. It was followed closely by Polaris with 3,490 sales, and close behind in third place, Yamaha with 2,237 sales.

    Piaggio remained top-seller in the scooter market with 525 sales. Second place was taken by Vespa with 426 sales, and Honda third with 390 sales.

    Overall, Honda is Australia’s top-selling motorcycle brand with 12,608 sales (YTD 2017), followed by Yamaha (9,827 sales), Kawasaki (4,567) and Harley-Davidson (4,433).

    Down again, how disappointing. It could be reasonable to say that the the three Brands nominated in this general sales review are the only real players left in the local game. All other surviving brands are only bit players. With Vespa taking out second spot, it can't be said that scooter rider defection is based on price comparison alone.

    Bikesales.com offer a great site. It is disappointing that they rarely review scooters. This is in contrast to general scooter listings on their site, scooters which represent a component of their business model.

    Re: 2017 6 monthly sales

    Yes, re top scoot players, ya'd wonder too if secondary players like Suzuki ( Address) would continue, also if there is a place for Scomadi.

    I note that they ( Scomadi) are now advertising on ebay....not an inspiring retail model, I would have thought.

    Does TGB still exist in Oz? They were quite reasonable.

    I keep thinking that the convenience/automatic/storage issues with scoots are winners: who really wants a geared vehicle with no storage in 2017?

    Just my 2 cents worth

    Re: 2017 6 monthly sales

    Think Suzuki will continue with the Address as they are suppliers of other bikes and can include it with their import mix.  And me thinks the little Address rather successful - far more successful than the Burger 200. Honda have a better mix, which is why they rate third. Although I wonder as to the future of the SH150 - will it go the same way as its predecessor? It will be interesting to see if the Burger 200, or the 650 survive if they import the latest 400.

    It would be great to view a complete sales make-up, inclusive of ALL scooters.

    Re: 2017 6 monthly sales

    Yes to both of those, Asps. A 200 Burger is weird and I reckon that Yammie 125 3 wheeler is not far behind

    Re: 2017 6 monthly sales

    Ah, I was just thinking abt TGB !I had one.  They were pretty good, they had a lot of the pizza trade delivery here a while back and their big scoot -can't remember the name-seemed OK too.. was wondering if they flopped in Oz.

    i dont' recall their Bellavita doing great things

    Re: 2017 6 monthly sales

    I didn't come back to scootering until about 4 years ago. In trying to understand what has happened to the scooter retail market over recent years I need only to go to Gumtree listings to see a rag tag list of scooters. Maybe I'm just being unfair, but I am wondering what future support could be enjoyed from some of these units, if at all.

    The first (I assume demonstrator - probably thrashed - how good are these things?) BMW G310R motorbikes have appeared on Bikesales.com. Same sort of money nearly as a small Vespa 150. Are these small macho bikes, for both sexes, knocking about scooter sales, or did scooter importers just get it wrong by flooding the market with crap unsupported product?

    Re: 2017 6 monthly sales

    Thanks for this 10 year list Pyrah. I have always held a riders general interest in what the market is doing, so witnessed over the last 12-14 years the number of small scooter showrooms and workshops that have come and gone in the Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Woolomoloo areas of Sydney. It looked to hold so much promise, once.
