Suzuki Make It Five Years At The
5th February 2009
For an impressive fifth year running,
Suzuki GB PLC ended 2008 as the best performing motorcycle
manufacturer in the largest segment of the UK market
- the 126cc-and-above category.
With registrations totalling an impressive 14,250,
Suzuki not only achieved the most registrations in
the 126cc-and-above category, but also managed to
top the respective sales charts on several occasions
with the GSX-R1000 and DR-Z400SM during 2008 also.
Talking about the results was Suzuki GB General Manager,
Paul de Lusignan, who commented, "Despite a tough
market, we still managed to finish the year as leaders
in the largest segment of the market yet again. Thanks
to great products, some strong, value-busting offers
and a proactive dealer network, we have managed to
end five consecutive years in this position, which
is an impressive feat. I'd like to take this opportunity
to thank our customers for their support, along with
our dealer network for their strong service."
Suzuki will be looking to end 2009 in the same, market-leading
position with two exciting new models heading to the
range. The recently launched Gladius 650 will be arriving
in Suzuki dealer showrooms later this month, while
the stunning, all-new GSX-R1000 superbike is set to
land in the UK in March.
