Royal Enfield in the top 10 of new registrations for the first time

The numbers of new registrations for motorcycles in November 2022 are in. According to IVM, a total of almost 4,000 motorcycles were registered. This is 16.9 percent more than in November 2021. In the top 10, Royal Enfield has displaced Suzuki from 10th place. The bestseller was the RE Classic 350.
The fewer motorcycles are sold, the more movement comes into the top 10 in terms of market share. As is well known, fewer and fewer bikes are sold at the end of the year, so the rankings here fluctuate more than in the sales-strong months of March to May. It is striking that the proportion of other manufacturers is rising and rising. In November, the market share of Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Indian, Benelli & Co. was already over 22 percent - and rising.

Market shares: registrations are not synonymous with sales

In terms of market share, Honda has again fought for 2nd place behind BMW. This is followed by Yamaha, Kawasaki, Harley Davidson and KTM, whereby KTM has lost significantly in numbers compared to the previous year: a minus of 17.3% is recorded here. All other manufacturers were able to sell more motorcycles in November 2022 than in the previous year - except for Suzuki: Here, the registration figures have collapsed by a whopping 42 percent. However, it should be noted in all these figures that these are not necessarily sales, but new registrations. So it may well be that Suzuki, for example, made a lot of daily registrations last year before the end of the year and not this year.

Top 50 newly registered motorcycles in November 2022

There is a big surprise among the top models: The Royal Enfield Classic 350 (-> test) is in a good 11th place. As the figures show, however, a few additional sales are necessary to jump upwards. At the RE Classic in November, for example, there were only 50 newly registered bikes that were sufficient for this good place.
