Australian importer Urban Moto Imports reports a similar boom trend here since the new twins arrived early this year.
Marketing Manager Mal Jarrett says the twins are “setting sales records and gaining awards around the globe faster than any other model in the history of the marque”.
“Surprisingly, the demand for the Classic 500 hasn’t really changed, in fact if anything it has increased, but the Classic 350 sales have dropped slightly, which was to be expected,” he says.
“Supply (of the twins) is now levelling out depending on the colour combination required. Most back orders have now been filled.
“The uptake of the model has exceeded all expectations.
“We were quietly confident that the new 650 Twins were going to eclipse anything that we have seen with sales in the past, but even the most optimistic amongst us couldn’t have predicted just how successful the models’ introduction would be.”
