First half-year motorcycle sales down: FCAI

8 JULY 2024

Australians purchased 42,541 motorcycles and off-highway vehicles (OHV) between January and June this year, a decrease of 5.6 per cent compared to the same time last year.

With almost 40 per cent of total sales, road motorcycles sold 16,568 units, down five per cent on 2023 figures.

OHV contributed almost 17 per cent of total sales with 7,155 vehicles sold, a decrease of 12.2 per cent.

Off-road bikes comprised over 38 per cent of the sales figures with 16,248 units purchased this year.

Scooters contributed six per cent to the total sales with 2,570 sold, down 1.8 per cent for the same time during 2023.

Yamaha leads the sales race, followed by Honda, Kawasaki and KTM.

FCAI attributed the sales decline to cost of living pressures and interest rate rises.
