    2017 3/4 sales figures

    Wot more doom and gloom from the FCAI (will post more later)

    National motorcycle, ATV and SSV sales for the nine months to the end of September declined 7.8 per cent compared with the same period in 2016, according to the latest sales data published by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries.

    Industry sales for the nine months totalled 73,141, with Honda holding a market lead of 22.8 per cent ahead of Yamaha with a 19.9 per cent share and 14,546 sales, Kawasaki third (9.5%, 6,936 sales) and Harley-Davidson fourth (8.9%, 6,526 sales).

    Road bikes were again the highest volume segment, with 29,625 sales or 40.5 per cent of the total motorcycle market. This volume represents a decline of 14.9 per cent on road bike sales for the corresponding nine months of 2016. The market leader in road bikes was Harley-Davidson, followed by Honda and Yamaha.

    Although coming off a low volume base, both Indian and Victory motorcycles posted strong increases during the period of 16.4 and 47.1 per cent respectively.

    Off-road bikes represented 32.9 per cent (or 24,066 sales) of the total market during the nine months to the end of September, with this segment’s sales down 5 per cent on the corresponding period in 2016. Yamaha led this segment ahead of Honda and KTM. A standout performer in the off-road segment was Husqvarna, which posted a 31.6 per cent increase.

    The ATV and SSV segment grew by 4.5 per cent during the nine month period to snare a 22.8 per cent share (or 16,657 sales) of the total motorcycle market. Polaris led this segment followed by Honda and Yamaha.

    The scooter segment again experienced a decline in sales, down 14 per cent on the first three quarters of 2016. Scooters represented just 3.8 per cent of total industry sales, or 2,793 units. Italian maker Piaggio was the segment’s best seller, followed by Honda and Vespa.

    As the Grom with 848 sales or CB125E 502 sales pinched any scooter buyers money ? Devil

    I love it when you post these stats Pyrah. No mention of the Piaggio Medley - 2016 Scooter of the Year. I also wonder if the GTS 250 & 300 are posted as one. No doubt the Vespa Prim & Sprint are one number. No surprises that the sub 125cc Address & Dio are going out the door. I am looking to upgrade, but struggling to find something that will be as useful and enjoyable to ride as my Dio - and the quality is there with the Dio. I susoect that those who enjoy larger capacity scoots might struggle to understand this, but in central metropolis, these scooters are the business. Over the last 8-9 months I have witnessed an ever increasing number of e-bicycles of which a good percentage are more expensive than their little petrol cousins. A guy pulled alongside at the traffic lights the other day on the most fantastic looking e -bike. He could see that I was impressed, '5kw' he blurted as he swooshed into the ether. Now measure that against 6.2kw for the Dio. So e-bikes are capturing potential scooter sales also. And they have their place.

    UM ebike 5kw sounds very legal to me makes a derestricted 50 look tame Wink

    In Australia it is illegal to ride an electric bicycle on road or bike paths with a stated power output of more than 200w without a pedal assist system, or 250w with a pedal assist system. The latter is also required to only have a pedal assist, and limited to do 6km/h via a throttle or cruise control mechanism.

    Very aware of what is legal and what aint. Also very aware that there are many home tinkerers that have their own idea of what best works for them ...

    So far Honda have sold 656 scooters Suzuki 278 Vespa 602 Piaggio 748  . Deduct the numbers sold from the 10 popular scooters list to gain a rough idea of the numbers of the less popular scooters sold Big Smile

    What gives Honda a numbers advantage is that they have their little Benly 110 work-horse, which the others do not. I keep waiting for someone to turn their (non commercial) Benly into a funky pick-up with a varnished timber ute tray.

    This 1973 Benly S110 court my eye today in a shop window at Port Lincoln wanting offers above $3500

    Re: 2017 3/4 sales figures

    Such a good thread........thanks Pyrah.

    Re top selling scoots, interesting to see that most ( I don't count the 50cc unit) are small commuters from reputable companies.

    I really thought that one of the bigger ones, perhaps the Bev , could rate higher.

    Asps point re electric bikes makes sense to me. I think that the electric SCOOTER market is dead but the electric pedal bike trade is expanding .

    Not sure about the Grom but that basic Honda 125 , at that price, must take a lot of scooter sales.

    Re Benly, I'm with Aspro on this....I think that a funked up Benly could look good....couldn't look any worse that it does now.

    Re: 2017 3/4 sales figures

    Yep, that's what pulled alongside at the traffic lights, a Stealth B52. Advertized out of Melbourne, they are stated as NOT being street ledgal - (but we're attempting to sell them notwithstanding). You could buy three Dio scoots for this, or many combinations of rides. Blisteringly quick to get away from the traffic lights was this 5.2kw pretend pushie!
