Honda’s fuel-efficient PCX scooter has topped the UK sales charts for the third consecutive month.

The technology-laden model shifted 151 units in November, almost double the amount of its closest rival, the Honda CBF 125 M which managed just 80 new registrations for the month.

But despite the scooter’s dominance over the last three months of the year, it’s still lagging behind the CBF 125 M in total sales.

Either the PCX or the CBF 125 M have topped the sales charts in all but four months of the year, with Honda’s monopoly at the top of the charts only stopped by the Yamaha YZF R125 in May, July and August and the BMW R 1200 GS in March.

The leading manufacturer

The success of the Japanese manufacturer’s two leading models, as well as the consistent performances of the NC 750 X and the CRF 250, has seen Honda storm ahead of its major rival, Yamaha, as the leading manufacturer in 2014.

Already, Honda has sold more than 17,000 units in 2014, compared to Yamaha’s 12,534 new registrations for the year-to-date.

The title of the most sales in a single month perhaps surprisingly goes to the BMW R 1200 GS, given Honda and Yamaha’s dominance, which sold 354 units in March.

Last month, the Honda PCX topped the sales charts with 165 unit sales however this month the scooter was able to clinch top spot despite shifting just 151 units, an indication of slowing motorbike sales as we move into winter.
