Triumph lead sales over 125cc

Hinckley-made bikes reach the top-spot in 2010 sales

TRIUMPH sold the most bikes in the UK over 125cc in 2010.

With 7,564 bikes registered in the final quarter of 2010, Triumph took the top slot, followed by Honda with 7,283, BMW with 6,704, Suzuki with 6,496 and Yamaha with 6,199.

The overall motorcycle sales chart is dominated by 125cc motorcycles, which puts Yamaha as the overall largest, by unit volume across the range.

With the decline in sportsbike sales and rise in market share of both the Naked and Adventure market, those focused on superbikes have been hit the hardest. Triumph have enjoyed a steady growth over the past five years, with bikes like the Daytona 675, Street Triple and Speed Triple selling in large volume both in the UK and abroad.
