Several segments that normally decline this time of year are actually up!
- Unusual for October, the Scooters, Dual Sports, and Street Bikes are up. The amounts are very small, but any increase in the road-going segments this time of year is noteworthy.
- More normal for the season, the off-road segments are up slightly this month, with the Off-Road bikes having the largest increase at 0.5%.
- The Cruiser segment is the only one of the on-road bike classes to see a “normal” drop this month, down by roughly 2%. Within the segment, the domestic models are down a touch less than the metrics.
- Snowmobiles have finally started to appreciate, as we are seeing auction volumes start to slowly increase from their minimal summer levels, raising average prices by 0.6%.
