July hot for winter bike sales

Motorcycle buyers are the big winners in July which is usually a hot month for winter discounts as companies scramble to sell of stock left over from the previous financial year.

The half-yearly motorcycle sales figures are set to be released in the next couple of days and we suspect the market has remained soft after a bad start to the year in the first quarter.

Sales were down  13.4% overall, -15.5% in road bikes, 15.3% in off-road bikes, scooters down 22.3% and ATV sales down 1.3%.

So motorcycle companies are heavily discounting in an effort to kick-start the new financial year.

So far we have seen big discounts on bike, accessories and gear from Indian and Victory motorcycles to celebrate the 4th of July.

Also for July, Kawasaki is offering $1500 cashback on their big tourers: 1400GTR, Ninja ZX-14R, Versys 1000, Ninja 1000 and Z1000.

Honda has joined in with free on road costs on the VFR800, CBR500R and CBR650F.

They are also offering “Honda Dollars” deals on other bikes which means you can spend the money on Honda accessories or clothing or get that amount taken off the retail price.

They are offering $1200 Honda Dollars on the VFR1200X, $700 on the CB500X and $1300 on the VT1300CX Fury.
