Yamaha still leads ahead of Honda, BMW, Triumph and Kawasaki complete the Top 5.


If the period still seems bad for the purchase of two-wheeled “pleasure” and the increase in price that spreads among all manufacturers and which is considered in the price of fuel, the market of motorcycles and scooters is still resisting good times.

Last June, 20,395 new cars left the market and began their lives on French roads. The number increased slightly from May, when 20,166 new cars were registered.

In detail, the Yamaha TMax 560 remains the sales leader with 1,142 units registered last June. The figure follows an already busy month of May for the Yamaha scooter with 1,602 units sold. Behind the Yamaha maxi scooter, we again find the Honda Forza 125 with 692 units sold. The first motorcycle in the list is still the Yamaha MT-07 (438 cars sold in June), which seems to be unstoppable on the level in the motorcycle category. BMW continues its good streak by placing R 1250 GS Adventure (337) and R 1250 GS (336) in the Top 5. Honda PCX 125 (297), BMW R 1250 RT (294), BMW CE 04 electric scooter (291 ), Zontes ZT 125 (291), and Yamaha Ténéré 700 (279) complete the top 10 sales list for the month of June 2022.

In terms of manufacturer, the palm goes to Yamaha. The brand, buoyed by the success of the new TMax 560 and its proven value, MT-07 tops the charts with 3,410 vehicles sold, closely followed by Honda with 3,130 units. BMW confirms its good period by completing the podium with 2,199 vehicles sold.

At the back, a hole has been made, and we find Triumph with 1,324 new cars registered, Kawasaki with 830, KTM (795), Harley-Davidson (654), Royal Enfield (544), Ducati (513), and Suzuki, which saves, this time, in the extreme position in the Top 10 with 508 motorcycles and scooters sold.

A sign of the opening of the motorcycle and motorcycle market, last June, 124 different brands are represented, 74 motorcycle brands and 68 motorcycle brands.

As the 2022 vintage continues to arrive in the trade, the coming weeks should see presentations of 2023 models increase, culminating in the international trade shows at the end of the year.
