DOWN AGAIN: September motorcycle sales show more decline

At this point we’ve pretty much run out of words to describe the situation.

It’s ‘September UK new registration statistic’ time and it makes for more, miserable reading. As it looks as if we won’t even have a motorcycle industry soon, we’re not sure that we’ve got the energy left to write much more about the constant sales decline. So rather than put any effort in, here is our quick takeaway list of the sad, sad situation:

So the sales in the Adventure Sport category are literally the only positive takeaway from another sorry month of UK new bike sales – and that’s with a figure that is basically stagnant.

If anyone has any ideas as to how we can improve motorcycling, and the advancement of two-wheeled travel in general, please feel free to share them – because at the moment with everything in this constantly state of  numb decline and status-quo that we’re in, it’s not looking like anyone else has any plans to rescue anything.
