Spain: motorcycle registrations +21.65 percent through April
According to the latest data available from ANESDOR, the motorcycle industry trade association in Spain, new motorcycle registrations for April were +16.67 percent at 13,295 units and +21.65 percent YTD at 44,296 units.
This is the best April and first four months market performance in Spain since before 2009, although Moped registrations were -17.53 percent YTD - thought to be the effects of their Euro 3/Euro 4 transition, which was effective January 1, 2018.
However, this hasn’t dragged on the overall market too much, with total PTW registrations up by 11.57 percent in April at 14,204 units and +16.72 percent YTD at 48,618 units.
Honda is the year-to-date market share leader at 19.8 percent, 8,758 units (2,629 units in April/19.8 percent share), with Yamaha second (16.5 percent/7,303 units), KYMCO third (9.4 percent/4,181 units, 11.2 percent), followed by Piaggio, BMW, Kawasaki, Sym, KTM, Suzuki and Peugeot.
The top-seller was Honda’s SH 125, followed by the KYMCO Agility City 125 and Honda PCX 125; the best-selling motorcycle was Yamaha’s MT-07 (1,105 units YTD).
