As we enter the fourth quarter, the market for used motorcycles is fairly hot, while side by sides are mixed. Looking at motorcycle values, cruisers continue to perform strongly, bringing 4.1% more money in the first ten months of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018. Sportbikes edged out year-prior results in the most recent period, with this segment bringing 4% more money year-to-date.
Moving over to side by sides, the utility segment continues to fall behind the previous two years, currently averaging 3.3% behind 2018. Sport side by sides had a relatively healthy summer, almost catching up to year-prior pricing. This segment is now essentially at parity with 2018 in terms of average pricing.
Looking forward, employment figures remain extremely strong and average wages continue to tick upward. Macroeconomic data is increasingly mixed, but demand for motorcycles and powersports should remain consistent into early 2020.
