Sales and demand remain buoyant across the board for ‘clean’ motorcycles and scooters according to dealers, with retro style machines proving particularly popular.

Stock availability remains challenging. Whilst there is stock available, dealers report needing to be very proactive and to pay premium prices in order to secure units. There has been continuous pressure on dealers to source more used stock this season, to make up for the shortfall in availability of new machines and to avoid having empty spaces in expensive showrooms.

A glorious summer and record-breaking temperatures means riding conditions have been at their best, encouraging bikers out onto the roads and whetting the appetites for new metal. Taking this into account, and with stock at a premium still, Glass’s expects market prices to remain strong across all segments in the coming weeks.
