No matter which way they’re looked at, BMW is happy with its motorcycles in North America for the first month of 2017.

Sales of BMW motorcycles rose 48% in January compared to January 2016 with performance strongest among F series (F 700 GS), G series (G 650 GS) and R series (R 1200 R and R 1200 RT) models.

“We have the broadest model range we’ve ever had in our history, which is contributing to our growing sales,” commented Michael Peyton, Vice President, BMW Motorrad North America. “With bikes for every riding preference and budget, and a strong and growing number of BMW retailers around the country, the motorcycling community is paying closer attention to BMW these days.”
