Good news for the market for two-wheelers. The numbers are all fresh and at the end of August, we can note an increase in sales of 1.92% over the same period in 2014.
If the first two months of the year heralded the worst of the sales side, it is clear that the market has seriously back on track as announced by Thierry Archambault, Deputy President, and Eric de Seynes, Chairman of the Motorcycle branch the CSIAM.

Honda leads the way with a freshly revamped Forza 125 4004 registrations before the Yamaha XMax 125 2316 sales and another Honda PCX 125 and 1845 registrations.

If this can be explained by tensions on time deliveries of new products, manufacturers are unanimous in pointing fingers at public authorities that are slow to take a position on the end of the law of 100 hp.
Therefore, it is good to note that the big roadster deserted the Top 25 sales. Kawasaki Z1000 is 32th 599 sales and the Suzuki GSX-S 1000 is 40th 535 sales just like sports. One machine to pull out of the game, the new Yamaha YZF-R1, 36th with 566 registrations in late August.
