Italian motorcycle registrations
In statistical terms, when it comes to recovery rebounds, it doesn't bounce much higher than this!
After being -95.85% in April with just 526 new motorcycles registered in Europe's largest market, and "only" being down by -11.35% in May (11,150 units), the latest new motorcycle registration statistics for June available from ANCMA, the motorcycle industry trade association in Italy (the owner of EICMA), make extraordinarily good reading.
June motorcycle registrations in Italy were +54.99% with 16,861 new motorcycles registered, putting the Italian market at a way better than expected total of "only" -23.83% (48,066 units) for the first half year.
Italy is an important scooter and moped market, so total PTW registrations (of all displacements and styles) were +37.31% (39,078 units) for June and are running at -23.04% for the YTD.
The top selling motorcycles in Italy YTD have been the BMW R 1250 GS Enduro (1,870 units YTD), followed by the Honda Africa Twin (1,831 units), Benelli TRK 502/502X (1,525 units YTD), Yamaha Tracer 900 (1,331 units) and the Honda NC 750 X (1,258 units).
For the record, in 2019 the Italian market was again Europe's largest at +6.26% in motorcycle registration terms (98,883 units) and +5.65% in total PTW terms at 231,937 units.
