Motorcycle sales jump ten percent

Motorcycle sales increased sharply this year. More motorcycles were sold in the first three quarters of 2014, than in the whole 2013.

Trade association Bovag announced on Sunday that the increase amounts to 10.8 percent, a total of 9,376 units.

"The developments seem to indicate recovery of consumer confidence," Bovag thinks.

The increase in sales this year is not in proportion to the years before the economic crisis. Nearly 17 thousand motorcycles were sold in 2008.
