HomeNEWSweather and Brexit are drag on the market

weather and Brexit are drag on the market’s valuation experts identify significant trends in the UK used vehicle market, and of the motorcycle, scooter and moped sector, the company’s Mark Field said: “The original 1980s Honda Africa Twin was released as a rugged, go anywhere, do anything bike which proved its credentials by winning the Paris-Dakar rally four times. The current Africa Twin is still an off-road focused touring bike but it has been reimagined for the modern world. Prioritising usable power and a low centre of gravity, it features three-stage traction control, near-perfect geometry, confidence-inspiring handling and a silky smooth engine. Used examples might have had an adventure or two so ensure a full provenance check is completed prior to purchase.”

As to market trends, Field said: “The up and down nature of this year’s registration statistics continued in July with a welcome 4.3% increase on the same month last year. While the great start to 2019 might have dwindled, overall the market is still sitting 3.1% above 2018 for the year-to-date. The continuing wet weather is undoubtedly having a big impact on the industry, as is uncertainty regarding our post-Brexit future. As we head towards autumn a further resurgence in sales seems unlikely, but in this most unpredictable year a prolonged spell of sunshine could yet spring another surprise.”
