BMW Motorrad achieves 14.2 per cent growth in May 2013 global sales

BMW sold 14.2 per cent more vehicles than in the same month last year and achieved a new all-time high for the month of May. 13,081 units (prev. yr.: 11,457 units) were supplied to customers worldwide last month. 52,400  motorcycles and maxi scooters (prev. yr.:
48,918 units) had been sold as of May - an increase of 7.1 per cent over the previous year.

"We have achieved our best May result to date with double-digit growth as compared to the previous year. We are currently 7.1 per cent above last year with an all-time first-quarter high in 2013, a record in April and a very strong May. While we are pleased to say that the very difficult markets of Southern Europe, Italy, Spain and France are showing very stable sales results, we are seeing especially good growth rates in the overseas markets of North and South America, Asia and Russia. Germany - our strongest single market - is also seeing a positive trend in spite of the unfavourable climate situation. The main driving force behind this development is provided by our new models, the BMW R 1200 GS, BMW F 800 GT and BMW HP4 as well as our maxi scooters, of course. We are anticipating another powerful stimulus from our new travel enduro, the F 800 GS Adventure, which goes out to dealerships in mid-June," said Heiner Faust, Head of BMW Sales and Marketing.
