demand remains strong for utility machines

Sales and demand for pre-owned scooters and motorcycles remain largely buoyant but, as with the new market, there are tentative signs that trade is quietening a little.

Although most dealers now report having reasonable stock levels for the time of year, they could ideally do with more if they want the opportunity to make up for the shortfall in sales of new bikes caused by ongoing stock constraints.

Demand continues to be strong across all segments, and much like the new bike market, smaller capacity machines and scooters in particular are in very high demand. 

Outlook
This year has been the hottest and driest since the legendary summer of 1976, with vast swathes of the country experiencing record-breaking temperatures and minimal rainfall.  These perfect riding conditions mean bikers have been out in their droves. Taking this into account, and with stock remaining at a premium, Glass’s expects market prices to remain strong across all segments in the coming weeks.
