Triumph motorcycle dealer in the US, BMW motorcycle dealers in the UK will close
BMW Motorrad has announced that it will close the UK motorcycle dealer and motorcycle trailer sales, the first in the European market to do so.BMW Motorrad confirmed in a statement on Monday that it had made the decision to close the sales after “continued losses in the United Kingdom, particularly for motorcycles, and other areas”.BMW said it was not the first to have to close a motorcycle dealer or motorcycle trailer in the U.K. or elsewhere.
Motorcycle dealers in Germany, Austria, Sweden and Denmark have closed in the past year, and BMW said it had taken steps to address these issues.
“We are very disappointed with our decision to exit the UK’s motorcycle dealership and motorcycle trailers market, which is part of our strategy to reduce costs and improve customer service,” BMW Motor-rad said in a release.
“However, we are also working closely with the industry and the government to further our strategy and ensure we continue to attract a high level of customers.”
The company did not provide a specific reason for closing the motorcycle dealers or motorcycle trailers, or whether they had to do with a lack of demand for its bikes.
Motorbikes were a popular form of transport in the 1950s and 60s, and they were hugely popular in the 1980s and 1990s.
Motorcycles were used by a growing number of people around the world, and sales have been growing steadily for more than a decade.
