Top Selling Road Motorcycles in Australia 2009

The FCAI has released figures for motorcycle sales in 2009.

In a year of financial turmoil around the globe, and dramatic falls in motorcycle sales worldwide, Australia’s motorcycle industry has held up reasonably well, recording an overall modest 13.6% decline over 2008 sales.

Once again, Honda’s CT110 has reclaimed the top of the charts, just pipping out Kawasaki’s 250 Ninja. Yamaha had a bumper year selling R1’s, with total sales nearly reaching the 1000 unit mark, well in advance of the competition.
