November saw foreign sales soar year-on-year in November to roughly 7,600 units shipped.

São Paulo – Motorcycle exports from Brazil soared by 94% year-on-year in November, the Brazilian Motorcycle, Moped and Bicycle Manufacturers Association (Abraciclo) reported this Wednesday (13). The month saw approximately 7,600 units shipped abroad, up from roughly 3,900 units in November 2016. Year-to-date through November, exports were up 41.9% to approximately 74,600 motorcycles.

Abraciclo numbers also show that some 83,100 bikes were made in Brazil last month, up 18.2% from November 2016. Year-to-date through November, however, output was down 4.8% to around 813,800 motorcycles made. “This scenario confirms that we have a year of better results ahead, and it marks the beginning of a rebound for the motorcycle industry,” a press release quoted Abraciclo chairman Marcos Fermanian as saying.
