Sport side-by-sides led the powersports industry in the second quarter, with that segment’s pricing once again averaging higher than any of the previous three years. Utility side-by-sides were moderately strong, performing similarly to last year but behind 2016.
Motorcycle pricing was mixed, with sportbikes showing a nice seasonal upward movement but bringing about 4% less money than last year. Cruisers didn’t see a seasonal bump in the second quarter, showing little change from last quarter and running about 3% behind last year.
Economic factors continue to support discretionary spending. Employment figures continue to improve, with more people entering the workforce after prolonged absence. Disposable income has increased for the past five quarters. The pool of potential buyers of motorcycles and side-by-sides is growing.
