MARKHAM, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Honda Motorcycle is proud to be the best-selling motorcycle brand in Canada. In 2014, Honda achieved nearly 20 per cent market share, with total sales of 10,930 motorcycles, more than 1,000 units ahead of the closest competitor.
“Motorcycles are at the very core of the Honda brand. It’s where our company began and we’re tremendously proud to have moved into the top sales position in Canada,” said Jerry Chenkin, President and CEO of Honda Canada Inc.
Honda was the top selling brand in Off Road recreation, Dual Sport and Sport categories in 2014. In the highly competitive world of entry-level sport bikes, Honda also took top market share with the CBR500R and MSX125 Grom leading the way.
Honda celebrated impressive success in motorcycle racing this year as well. Honda riders won both the Canadian MX Championship title as well as the Canadian Superbike Championship title. Winning both titles is an extremely rare feat, of which Honda is tremendously proud.
