Honda leads January sales rush

Total national sales of motorcycles, scooters and ATVs were down 9.3%.

While Honda remained the market leader and sales were down 8%, which was less than across the industry, the company is obviously keen to move floor stock before new 2018 models arrive.

UPDATE March 19: Honda Australia has extended the following offers by two weeks to April 16.

The Honda deals include free on-road costs for the CBR1000RR Fireblade ($21,499 ride away), NC750X ($9999), CBR300R and CB300F ($4999), CRF250 Rally ($6999) and CB125e ($2499).

Honda is also offering $500 “Honda Dollars” on the CBR500R. That means you can chose to send the $500 on inshore accessories or servicing, or take it off the purchase price.

Adventure riders are being offered a free upgrade to the automatic (dual-clutch transmission) Africa Twin ABS (pictured top of page).
