Stats released by the MCIA for August show that while sales of motorcycles increased slightly compared to August 2012, sales of mopeds fell dramatically, with a 24% slump in the number of machines leaving showrooms.

Bigger capacity bikes fared better, with partcular success in the mid-range 126-650cc sector where sales rose by nearly 13%.

Best-selling bike of the month was, yet again, the training school favourite Yamaha YBR125, while Honda continued to dominate as the best-selling brand.
