Quad sales continue to grow

16 July 2012

Quad sales continue to grow

Figures just released by the Motor Industry Association show that quad bike sales for the first half of 2012 were up nearly 20% on the same period last year.

“These numbers confirm continuing strength in the agricultural sector”, said Mr Clive Hellyar, Manager of the Motor Cycle Division of the Motor Industry Association. “This is also evident in the two wheeled off road sector where the reduction in sales compared with 2011 is principally recreational off road bikes while two wheeled farm bikes sales are continuing at much the same level as 2011. Some of the growth in quad sales can also be attributed to an increase in the number of side by side quad vehicles which are used mainly in agriculture.”

Total new on road registrations for the first six months of sales this year were 2830 compared with 3594 for the same period last year.

The top three in off road product sales were Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha. The top three for the first half of 2012 in road registrations were Suzuki, Honda and Triumph.
