Yamaha is reporting different performance from the two- and four-wheel sides of its North American business from its fiscal first half.
The company’s revenue from its power products division, which includes ATVs and side-by-sides, was nearly on par with a year ago, dropping only 6 percent in the first half.
However, Yamaha’s wholesale motorcycle sales dropped more than 50 percent to 35,000 units during that same time, the company reported.
The company’s motorcycle sales also fell in Europe, declining 20.5 percent to 135,000 units.
Overall, the company reported a 17 percent gain in overall sales for its second quarter due in part to growing revenue in smaller markets.
