Nakeds continue to lead the way
The Naked boom in the UK market continued in March with 4,247 units sold throughout the month.
While sales of Nakeds are up 3.9 per cent for the year to date when compared to 2015, sales of the fairing-less bikes are 1.8 per cent down on new registrations recorded in March 2015.
The Triumph fell in behind the Honda CRF 1000 Africa Twin with a massive 431 until sales in March.
One of the most surprising sights in March was that of the Honda PCX 125 sitting in third position.
Typically the UK’s best selling model, the PCX managed 235 new registrations in total, a number that’s usually enough for it to claim top spot.
Honda holds top spot
Holding first and second place in the UK’s best selling model charts in March was enough for Honda to claim top spot overall for best selling manufacturer.
The Japanese marque broke the 3,000-unit barrier, well over one thousand sales clear of its nearest rival, Yamaha.
Sales of Supersport bikes fell for March last month, however year-to-date sales made for more painful reading after a drop of 12.8 per cent in sales compared to the same point in 2015.
