The newly upgraded F 700 GS also grew, up 89 percent with sales of 49 units compared to 26 a year ago, while the recently introduced HP4 superbike and C 650 GT maxi scooter helped maintain the positive momentum from last year with 20 and 47 units respectively.”

Worldwide, BMW arrives in 2013 following a year of record sales. In 2012, BMW Motorrad sold 106,358 motorcycles and maxi scooters to customers, which was an increase of two percent over 2011.
