Some motorcycle companies finished in 2019 with not very good results. The recession has not spared even India, the largest motorbike-market in the world. However, not everyone became victims of the recession. Ducati and Suzuki finished the year on a positive note, as well as BMW Motorrad.
BMW Motorrad is doing well at the moment. In 2019, the German manufacturer sold 175,162 motorcycles, i.e. 5,8% more than in 2018. BMW sales are growing for the ninth consecutive year.
Germany, as usual, remains the main market for BMW. In the homeland, the manufacturer sold 26,292 motorcycles, 10% more than last year. France, Italy, Spain, the UK / Ireland are among the top five most important countries for BMW. The manufacturer has achieved great success in Brazil (+ 36.7%) and China (+ 16.6%). In the United States and Canada, the Bavarians sold 15 116 motorcycles.
“The 2019 sales results say our development strategy is effective,” writes Dr. Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad. “We will expand our lineup with new innovative and emotional products in 2020.”
