Despite these strong sales, business is still slow with sales down 18.6% year on year, according to figures released by the MCIA.
But its not all bad news, sales of naked bikes rose by 3.4% compared to September 2008, meaning they now have a 25.4% increase in market share. The most popular model in this category is Honda’s new CBF 125 M, closely followed by the Yamaha YBR 125. Between them these two learner-legal, commuter-friendly models have taken one-fifth of the market share within the naked style, with a combined total of 3,788 registrations year-to-date.
