BMW motorcycle sales in 2019 witnessed a growth in these turbulent times. The 310s continue to form the chunk of BMW’s overall sales.
BMW Motorrad has sent in a press note informing about its sales for the calendar year 2019. Surprisingly, the maker has registered a significant growth which becomes special during these times of economic slowdown our country is witnessing. Most of the other auto makers – cars or two-wheelers – have shown decline in sales as buyers postponed their buying decisions.
BMW Motorcycle Sales 2019
In this environment, BMW Motorrad sold 2406 motorcycles in 2019 which is a growth of 10 percent over its performance in the year 2018. BMW has used the term ‘delivered’ which means these are not mere dispatches from dealerships which is what is generally reported as sales.
BMW adds that its G310 twins – G310 R and G310 GS, contributed more than 85 percent to this tally which means they registered total sales of over 2045 units. The rest of the lineup managed less than 360 units in the overall year.
BMW also informed that its R1250 GS/GSA, F750/850 GS and the S1000 RR were the other popular motorcycles. The German maker also credited its finacial arm – BMW Financial Services which, it says, ‘played a strategic role in expanding BMW Motorrad in India’.
Rudratej Singh, company’s CEO said that 2019 was a very good year for BMW despite the turbulence in the two-wheeler market. He attributed the growth to the portfolio and said that BMW has something in store for everyone.
