BMW Motorrad USA: Motorcycle Sales up 61.1% in May

BMW Motorrad USA Sets Record May Sales

BMW Motorrad USA is once again on an upward trend regarding motorcycle and maxi-scooter sales.

In April, the Bavarian manufacturer reported that stateside sales were up 31.6 percent, attributing the rise to the release of the F800GT and the revamped R1200GS.

And the positive results continued for the month of May, 2013. BMW Motorrad says that 1,809 motorcycles and maxi scooters were sold in the USA in May, which is up 61.1 percent from the total of 1,123 sold in May 2012.

This was the best sales for the month of May, ousting BMW Motorrad USA’s record set in 2005 by almost 170 units.

Speaking of the growth, BMW Motorrad says “F-series sales, boosted by the introduction of the new F 800 GS Adventure and F 800 GT, grew by 66 percent compared to May 2012 with 353 units compared to 212 units last year.

“Growth in K-Series, up 24 percent, came from the 6-cylinder K 1600 GTL and GT but it was the all-new water-cooled R 1200 GS boxer that lead the way in May with 360 units delivered to customers, driving growth of 42 percent in R-Series models.”

Last year, BMW Motorrad celebrated its best worldwide sales year ever, the Bavarian motorcycle manufacturer selling 106,358 motorcycles and maxi scooters to customers worldwide.
