May has been the fifth month with a constant growth for the sales of BMW Motorrad, and the increased volumes helped attain improved to-date sales. In May 2015, BMW sold 15,004 motorcycles and maxi-scooters, compared to 14,088 in the same period of the previous year.
This accounts for a 6.5% growth over May 2014, helping BMW Motorrad reach sales that are 6.4% bigger in the first five months of 2015 than in the year-ago period.

Europe and Asia fueled BMW Motorrad's growth, with R1200GS being once more the strongest player

BMW's biggest growth was recorded in Europe and Asia, but the leading market was, surprisingly or not, China. Official sources in the person of Heiner Faust, BMW Motorrad Head of Sales and Marketing, say that the Chinese market had the most surprising evolution from 2014 on.

The sales of BMW motorcycles in China almost doubled, with more than 1,100 units being sold. "Our market offensive is clearly starting to making itself felt. We believe the future prospects for the Chinese market are very promising," the BMW official adds.

All five new BMW models will have reached the dealerships by June 13th

The last of the new models to become available in dealerships is the S1000XR sport-adventure machine, which follows the R1200RS, which is available since Maty 16th. The R1200GS remains the best-selling BMW bike, with the sales of its Adventure version also developing "especially satisfactory." It's going to be very interesting to see the semester sales for this year, now, that all of BMW's new bikes are out.
