Have they tried to get their dealers to pre-reg as many bikes as they can afford, to boost figures with the onset of the competition from other manufacturers? Sales figures later in the year should give us some idea.

Seems like every other new bike I see in London is a Beemer.  Would be interesting to know which models contributed to the sales hike though.  The enduros, the S1000RR or the new 1600s? Presumably the new scoots aren't figuring in the numbers yet?

Well, BMW dealers might be packed out with people but the stats show Triumph is the biggest seller in the over 600cc class at the moment. End of the year figures will still be the ones to show how much damage to BMW all these new 'adventure bikes' on the market are causing.

Triumph

Is this why we fought two world wars? To be overrun with german goods. Buy British!  Oh God I want a Spitfire.

I've been to the factory, the majority of the range is still built in the UK, they take you onto the production line where you can see with you're own eyes all the different bikes being built as each bike on the line is different due to being built to order rather than surplus!!! Still a completely British company with British Designers and British production, it has factories outside the UK...So what??
