Despite the difficulties with the supply of components, the national motorcycle market is managing to maintain a level of more than 100,000 monthly sales. Data from Fenabrave (National Federation of Automotive Vehicle Distribution) for August showed that, last month, 102,711 motorcycles were licensed.

However, the number was 8.77% lower than that registered in July, when 112,584 units were sold. The comparison with August 2020, amidst the pandemic, shows a growth of 6.99%. In that period, only 96,000 motorcycles and the like were licensed.

Among the automakers, Honda led alone once again. There were 76,955 units licensed in August, down 11.19% compared to July and totaling 74.92% of all motorcycles sold in Brazil last month. For every 4 motorcycles sold, 1 was a Honda.

In the sequence appears again the Yamaha, with 18,231 licenses and 17.75% of participation in the total of August. However, it also saw a drop of 4.17% compared to July. Shineray completes the podium, which registered 1,465 sales last month and once again surpassed BMW (1,335 units).

The highlight of the month goes to Royal Enfield. The national operation of the Indian brand was established in fifth position and had a growth of 76.53% between July and August. There were 1,038 motorcycles sold last month, against 588 units in the previous month. Of these, the new Meteor 350 was responsible for 721 license plates.
