Buell 1125CR is biggest selling 1000cc+ motorcycle in December
Admittedly that accolade was achieved with only 44 sales, but compared to lacklustre sales that typified Harley-Davidson’s sporting off-shoot, it’s a great achievement enabled by serious discounts as dealer frantically try to sell off remaining stock.
The Yamaha YBR125 was the biggest selling bike overall, with 144 motorcycles sold in the month. Top tourer was the BMW R1200RT, selling 36 bikes. The figures from the Motorcycle Industry Association revealed a bleak picture – year-to-date motorcycle sales were down 19.7% in comparison with the same period in 2008.
