Yamaha’s North American sales rose in its recent quarter, thanks in part to elevated ATV sales.
Yamaha’s third-quarter ATV sales rose approximately 11 percent compared to a year ago, according to the company’s earnings report. Yamaha noted the increased ATV sales are partially a result of the company making inventory adjustments a year ago.
Yamaha’s overall North American sales rose nearly 25 percent for its quarter. However for the company’s first nine months of its fiscal year, its overall North American sales remain down, off nearly 9 percent compared to the prior year.
Wholesale motorcycle sales in North America remain sluggish for Yamaha. The company reported a sales total of 5,000 units during its most recent quarter.
