Ok...so if ATV's are down by 8% and SxS's are up by 7% then they really only lost 1%; right? This probably because of the nervous consumer and maybe, possibly, something to do with the new bigger big bores coming out. I honestly think that if Yamaha wants to continue to be a power hitter, they are going to have put one of those awesome V-Twins they have on a utility quad and SxS frame. :evil6: If a better big bore can be built, yamaha can do it. JMHO :glasses2:grizzlywizard said:Yamaha Motors claims that sales have dropped nearly 8% in 2007 selling only 301,000 Motorcycles and ATV's compared to a 327,000 units sold in 2006.
On the bright side it appears that sales of side by sides have increased and is up a little more than 7% from 39,000 units in 2006 to 42,000 units in 2007.
