from a Triumph press release:
"Triumph also did extremely well in Canada by producing a year-long sales increase of more than 20 percent over the same period in 2008. The achievement makes Triumph the fastest growing motorcycle brand in Canada."
not bad in a market in which most manufacturers suffered 30%-40% declines last year....
the other interesting tidbit was:
"The iconic brand increased sales in its home market by 26% in 2009, selling 7450 new motorcycles and overtaking Kawasaki to be the fourth largest big bike brand in the UK. Triumph finished the year very strongly, outselling all manufacturers in the month of November and trailing Honda by just 1 unit in December in the UK +500cc sector. "
Triumph outsells Kawasaki? we live in 'interesting times' indeed!
