BMW Motorrad reports that it continues to perform well. Against the overall downward trend on the motorcycle market, sales increased 22.5% in April to 12,452 units. Not in the least thanks to its innovative and extensive model range, BMW Motorrad was already able to achieve growth of 21.5% (33,292 units / prev. yr. 27,398) this year. With 3,489 (+12.4%) deliveries in April, the GS model with Boxer engine remains the best-selling model in the BMW Motorrad range. The most successful BMW Motorrad model of all time will also celebrate its 30th anniversary this year. BMW will mark the anniversary with the release of four special models (“30 Years GS”), which will create an additional incentive to buy from early May onwards. Demand for the brand’s first supersport bike, the BMW S1000RR, has also been very encouraging and has exceeded production capacity. In April, 1,471 units of this model were delivered to customers around the world.
