Motorcycle sales in Indonesia during the first eight months of the year totaled 2,646,503 units, down 23 percent from sales of about 3.44 million units during the same eight-month period last year, said the Indonesian Motorcycle Industry Association (AISI).
Indonesia’s motorcycle market is led by Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki.
Despite the drop in domestic sales, AISI said it expects increased efforts by the Big Four from Japan to boost year-end production to 5.8 million units, an increase of 16 percent compared to 2005.
