Slump? What Slump? Despite the slow motorcycle sales in 2008, Kawasaki Motors hasn't let off the throttle for 2009. Continuing its trend of delivering more and more new models each coming model year late this decade, Team Green unveiled more new models this weekend at its annual dealer meeting held in Dallas, Texas.
With a star-studded celebrity line-up presenting each model to the stage, the morning meeting was jam-packed with information. Kawasaki sure does live up to its motto, letting the Good Times Roll. It doesn't see any reason to let off the throttle in what appear to be economic difficulties.
Despite overall motorcycle sales dropping in 2008, Kawasaki showed an increase in its market share for 2008, up 5% compared to a 6% drop in overall all-brand sales. That's huge news to Kawasaki and its dealers. With category-leading products to offer, the dealers are selling for success in nearly every motorsport discipline.
