Motorcycle exports into the United States from metric manufacturers declined in June, a trend that has largely been seen throughout the first half of this year.
U.S. exports from members of the Japanese Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) totaled slightly more than 22,000 in June, a nearly 25 percent decline from a year ago. For the first six months of the year, exports by Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki to the United States have declined 30 percent.
Suzuki was the lone manufacturer to report increased worldwide exports in June.
