Woodcliff Lake, NJ – February 2, 2017… The new year is off to a bold new start for BMW Motorrad USA, as sales of BMW motorcycles rose 48% in January compared to January 2016.

“We have the broadest model range we’ve ever had in our history, which is contributing to our growing sales,” commented Michael Peyton, Vice President, BMW Motorrad North America. “With bikes for every riding preference and budget, and a strong and growing number of BMW retailers around the country, the motorcycling community is paying closer attention to BMW these days.”
“Our sales show that consumers are embracing all-new models like the customizable R nineT Scrambler, which exceeded our sales expectations for January, as well as perennial favorites like the R 1200 RT, which has earned “Motorcycle of the Year” awards from Motorcyclist Magazine three years in a row.”
