Husqvarna Reports a Record Retail Performance for January 2010

At a time when motorcycle sales are taking a hit, the Aussie Husqvarna importer, the Paul Feeney Group, is celebrating a big start to the new year with a major growth spurt in Husky sales compared to a year ago. Here's the press release from the PFG, so check it out:

The Paul Feeney Group is pleased to announce an all time record retail sales month for Husqvarna in January 2010. Husqvarna achieved a growth of 80.6% compared with the same period in 2009 and is highlighted by the fact that the Husqvarna brand was the only manufacturer in the Australian motorcycle market to post positive gains on last year's result in the off road segment.

The latest ERG (Equipment Research Group) figures showed a decline in total market motorcycle retail sales in January 2010 and more specifically a decline of 28.3% across all manufacturers for the Australian off road marketplace.

The Husqvarna brands outstanding performance is driven by a variety of factors including a strong and committed dealer network promoting the new 2010 model line-up, which are the highest quality and most competitively priced Husqvarna motorcycle range ever.

The upward trend looks set to continue for the Husqvarna brand with a new No Hassle No Haggle advertising campaign commencing in February 2010 highlighting the advantages of the Husqvarna product.

TE 250$11,495.00*CR 125$9,795.00*
TE 310$11,595.00*TC 250$10,995.00*
TE 450$11,995.00*TC 450$11,495.00*
TE 510$12,395.00*
WR 250$10,495.00*
WR 300$10,995.00*

Another key factor is Husqvarna's all new Super compact 250cc four stroke powerplant fitted to the TE 250 Enduro and TC 250 Motocross models. With both bikes receiving high profile coverage in the Australian and global motorcycle press these models are set to capture a larger share of the 250cc market than ever before for the Husqvarna brand.

The combination of the above factors plus the addition of a competitive junior range of Husqvarna motorcycles set down for mid to late 2010 should see the Husqvarna brand continue to achieve significant market growth.
