The motorcycle and powersport market has moderated, with cruisers doing nicely, sportbikes holding steady, utility side by sides underperforming, and sport side by sides stable after a strong start to the year. Please note that we are only including the most recent 10 model years in our graphs now, so this edition’s figures will look different than previous results.
Looking at motorcycle values, cruisers are bringing 4.5% more money in the first half of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018. This result suggests the segment still has legs despite demographic trends. Sportbikes are outperforming last year by 3.9%, but the segment saw a less notable second-quarter bump than usual, which leaves it behind 2017 by 1.5%.
Moving over to side by sides, the utility segment is underperforming the previous two years, currently running 3.3% behind 2018. Sport side by sides started the year strong but had only a moderate bump in the second quarter. This segment is averaging essentially equal pricing year-over-year
Looking forward, consumer spending is on a hot streak, which should support values in the powersports market through the rest of the prime selling season.
