Motorcycle sales rose 24% in October compared to the same month last year, reaching 120,300 units.
In comparison with September, a month with one more day of sales, there was a slight drop of 2.7% in the market for new motorcycles, reported this Thursday (3) Fenabrave, an association that represents dealerships.
In the first ten months of the year, 1.1 million motorcycles were sold in Brazil, corresponding to an increase of 17.9% compared to the same period in 2021.
When commenting on the balance sheet, the president of Fenabrave, José Maurício Andreta Jr., noted that the market remains heated, with consumers waiting in some categories, despite the selectivity of banks in credit analyses.
“The market for models of up to 250 cc is very hot. They are, for the most part, vehicles used for work and urban travel and which have been in good demand at dealerships”, said the executive.
Sales of agricultural machinery, including tractors and harvesters, grew by 19.9% in September compared to the same month last year, according to Fenabrave.
In total, 6,200 units were delivered to rural producers in September, which, compared to August, represents an increase of 12.3%.
Unlike car sales, which can be updated daily based on daily vehicle licenses, agricultural machinery numbers need to be collected by Fenabrave with manufacturers.
Therefore, the statistics have a one-month delay in relation to the balance of car sales, whose results released today by the association are already relative to October.
In the first nine months of the year, sales of agricultural machinery totaled 49,000 units, up 23.1% over the same period last year.
