The year 2021 remains difficult even in October ...

Again 20 percent less than in 2020!

The motorcycle market in Germany in 2021 will remain difficult. Compared to October 2020, 20.15 percent fewer motorcycles were registered. In absolute terms, this means 5,294 new bikes this year compared to 6,630 machines last year.
But not only the motorcycles let feathers, also the sales of the 125cc and 125cc scooters do not look good in October. Only the scooters, i.e. scooters with more than 125 cc, did not lose in October 2021 compared to the previous year. It's easy to imagine what this means for retailers: Fewer machines sold = less money in the cash register. Due to the development of the corona crisis, the rest of the year gives little hope for improvement.
Among the top 50 best-selling motorcycles, the CMX 500 Rebel from Honda surprises again and again. It ranks 6th with 1,830 units sold. On the other hand, little is happening in terms of manufacturers' market shares. After a brilliant start to the year, BMW is now levelling off at around 23 percent, bringing up the rear in the top 10 is Suzuki with less than 3 percent.
