Motorcycle blogger and journalist, Carla King, mentioned in her article yesterday {link} the sales statistics of new motorcycles in the USA during 2004. It would appear that according to the MIC (Motorcycle Industry Council), new motorcycle sales have passed the one million mark in the USA !!

The best sold motorcycle was the cruiser, followed by sports motorcycles. Of the 1,050,000 motorcycles sold, 10 % of them were sold to females !

MIC publish the sales of new motorcycles starting in 1993

Year - Units sold
1992 - 278,000
1993 - 293,000
1994 - 306,000
1995 - 309,000
1996 - 330,000
1997 - 356,000
1998 - 432,000
1999 - 546,000
2000 - 710,000
2001 - 850,000
2002 - 936,000
2003 - 1,001,000

The interesting fact is when you read their press release, during 1973, 1,5 million motorcycles were sold !!! They don't really explain why the drop of sales at the end of the 70's, but one can guess....

On the Motorcycle Industry Council website, there's an interesting Adobe .PDF document about riding motorcycles, specially for first timers, or people who are interested {link}.
