Metric motorcycle exports into the United States have continued an increase that began in August 2010.
In February, exports from the Big Four increased 41 percent over the year-ago month, according to the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA).
JAMA members Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha exported more than 18,000 motorcycles into the United States in February, up from nearly 11,000 in February 2010.
Exports into Canada, however, decreased 27 percent, with fewer than 3,000 bikes shipped.
