BMW Motorrad April 2013 Motorcycle Sales Report

Due to the release of new motorcycles, such as the F 800 GT and the revamped R 1200 GS, BMW Motorrad USA has reported a 31.6-percent increase in sales for the month of April.

BMW Motorrad reports that 1,571 motorcycles were sold in April, compared to 1,194 in April of 2012.

Speaking of the positive report, the Bavarian motorcycle manufacturer says “with 225 units compared to 113 units last year, the award winning S 1000 RR continues to conquest buyers in the superbike segment while the recently introduced F 800 GT helped drive F-Series sales, up 58 percent on April 2012, with 83 units in the month.

“Growth in K-Series (up 12 percent) came from the new 30-year edition K 1300 S but it was the all-new water-cooled R 1200 GS boxer that stole the show in April with 243 units delivered to customers, driving growth of 8 percent in R-Series models.”

Worldwide, BMW arrived 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.
