Interesting that every category but Superbike declined, and their best seller, the Monster had the biggest drop, in volume not in percent. Hence the incentive to upgrade it. Sport classics dropped alot too, but I think that's a bike that would reach market saturation relatively quickly.
The numbers say that if you are running Ducati, make sure your SB and Monster lines are up to date. And maybe update the sport classics with engine/chassis mods to get new buyers and current buyers to update, and pull this off with minimal time and $ investment. Possible to fill the limited SS demand this way, maybe........
