For those interested in the state of the market for adventure bike sales, here they are to the end of June 2017 in Australia.

Even combining the sales of the GS 1200 and the GS 1200A, the Africa just has the sales lead at this point in time. The copy paste is a bit dodgy, however first figure is this year's sales, the second is comparison with last year and third is the percentage change.

This is cool. Where does the data come from? Oz dept of motor vehicle registrations? Don't think the US breaks it down by bike type.

Hmmmmm No KTM 1090/1190/1290 data, Yamaha Super Tenere data, no Triumph Tiger / Explorer data.


Found this for first quarter 2017 for Oz from this MCN article: http://www.mcnews.com.au/2017-australian-motorcycle-sales-figures-q1-road/ Scroll down for the ADV data.
