I don't have current numbers, but a few years ago it was in the rough ballpark of 500 / 5000 give or take.
Kev, I found similar numbers in several threads on different motorcycle forums but in each case, the poster said that they were guessing. Those estimates may be correct but it would be interesting to know the real numbers.If those ARE the real numbers, it's amazing that any motorcycle dealer would bother to carry the line. Of all of the bikes that I've owned since 1969 (and it's a LOT of motorcycles), Moto Guzzi and old, BMW airheads are the only bikes that have truly stirred my soul.
The most recent numbers mentioned by Galluzzi in an interview a year, or so, ago was 7,xxx worldwide and about 10% for USA.
Specifically, they made 6800 units in 2013, up from 6600 in 2012. http://www.piaggiogroup.com/en/archive/press/piaggio-group-2013-draft-financial-statements They appear not to have shared that figure for 2014 as of now.
I'd bet Guzzi can't truly tell you how many bikes they make per year let alone how many were delivered to each continent.
Jackson those were real enough as reported by dealers here over the years.Lucian, those numbers have been discussed here too over the years.If memory serves big round ballpark numbers would be Ducati, Triumph, then BMW in ascending order, maybe 10-20k, 40-50k, 125k worldwide.Those may be off give or take but certainly give you perspective vs. Guzzi.
I just bought a Custom 1400 from dealer in Pensacola. They sold 21 Guzzi's last year and were in the top 5% of dealers.How do they even stay in business, Guzzi that is.Micky
Isn't KTM #2 and closing in on BMW ? Dusty
January 21, 2014 - (Press release edited by webBikeWorld) - KTM has doubled sales volume since 2008, with 123,859 motorcycles sold worldwide in 2013 (107,142 units sold in 2012). The most popular model is the new KTM 1190 Adventure (report). KTM's recent 1-2 victory in the "Dakar" South American rally probably helped also.KTM now claims they are the "fastest growing motorcycle brand in the world" over the last three years.KTM has contract manufacturing and their own manufacturing facilities in India, Malaysia and Colombia (of all places). CFMoto in China will produce KTM bikes and more factories are planned in Thailand, Brazil and the Philippines. The plan is to increase production to 200,000 motorcycles by 2016.
These are interesting and believable numbers. BUT if I take the ratio of Ducati to Guzzi production I get 45k/7k = 6.43, and I'm absolutely certain I've seen way more than 6 times as many Ducatis as Guzzis on the road here in the U.S. It must be that Ducati exports a higher proportion of its worldwide production to the U.S. than Guzzi.Of course it might be a matter of differential perception, put down to the fact that every single Ducati is painted bright red!
