As predicted, the sales of motorcycles and scooters in France during 2009 were pretty bad. Officially, sales were down 15.8%, which is pretty bad, with only 200,017 model sold compared to 237,695 during 2008.. But, there's a glimmer of hope in these bad figures. Because the Piaggio MP3 is not taken into account in motorcycle/scooter sales, because of the three wheels, if you add the explosion of sales of the Piaggio MP3Piaggio Mp3 Hybrid Scooter (2,933 MP3-250 and 11,106 MP3-400 - they also sold 34 MP3 Hybrids, not bad after only 1 1/2 month of sales), sales actually "only" fell 10%. Which is not bad considering the bad economy. So, in reality, only a drop of 10%.

The top 10 sales by model (excluding the MP3 which sold the most) are:

1. Yamaha 125 Xmax - 7,903
2. Kawasaki Z750 - 6,124
3. Kawasaki ER-6 - 5,426
4. Yamaha XJ6 600 - 4,614
5.  Peugeot Satelis 125 - 4,474
6.  Yamaha 500 Tmax - 4,349
7.  Piaggio X Evo 125 - 4,049
8.  Suzuki 125 Burgman - 4,007
9. Yamaha YBR 125 - 3,689
10. Honda CBF 125 - 3,651

The model in red are scooters. 50% of the top 10 models sold are scooters. 60% of the top 10 model sold are 125 cc bikes.

In the top 1000+ cc motorcycles, we find:

1. Honda CB1000R - 2,543
2. BMW R1200RT - 1,620
3. Yamaha YZF-R1 - 1,441
4. Suzuki GSX-R 1000 - 1,321
5. BMW R1200GS - 1,231
6. Yamaha FZ1 - 1,172
7. Yamaha FJR 1300A - 1,136
8. Honda CBF1000 - 1,107
9. Kawasaki Z1000 - 1,072
10. Triumph 1050 Speed Triple - 1,059
