In the land of cheese, chocolates and banks, Switzerland is doing very well in terms of motorcycles sales. Between January and August 2012, traditionally the best months for motorcycles sales, there was a nice bump upwards in new motorcycles being sold.

In total an increase in sales of 6.7% was seen for motorcycles (a total of 20,743 bikes), while scooters saw an increase of 9.3%, totalling 17,635 new scoots. Honda has a big jump, +26%, thanks to several new models, while Yamaha jumped 8%, while European manufactures like KTM (+36%), BMW (7%) and Vespa (+20%) did extremely well. Even Harley-Davidson did well, with an increase of 13%.

The manufacturers who did not fare well were Piaggio (the brand -20%), Kawasaki (-7%) and even Triumph did bad, with -9%. Ducati remained stable.

The top 20 sales in motorcycles during the time frame were:

1: BMW 1200 GS
2: Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 48
3: Suzuki GSR 750
4: Yamaha FZ8
5: Yamaha XJ 6
6: BMW S 1000 RR

14: Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 Iron
15: Harley-Davidson Dyna Fat Bob
16: BMW R 1200 R
17: Ducati Panigale
18: BMW R 1200 GS Adventure

So I guess it's good when you live in a country where there are a lot of banks, since that's where the money is.
