No 1 (again) In 2015
HONDA has cemented its position at the top
of the motorcycle industry by retaining market
leadership again in 2015, official FCAI data
In a lacklustre overall market, Honda
delivered a solid year of achievement; including
setting records in some categories. Highlights
from the recently compiled data include:
Honda smashing the 10,000 unit barrier in
Off-Road motorcycle sales, with Honda being
the only major brand to enjoy solid growth in
the key Motocross and Trail segments.
Setting an all-time monthly record in All-
Terrain Vehicle sales in June and then finishing
the year with 10% growth compared to 2014.
Delivering solid growth in the Scooter
segment, bucking the trend of a falling total
Asked about the 2015 result, Honda
Motorcycles General Manager Peter Singleton
focussed upon the support Honda enjoys from
the market and its business partners.
"Once again I thank our customers and
dealer network for our solid performance in
2015," Mr Singleton said.
"Honda is focussed upon delivering
products that motorcycle customers want, and
supporting them through the best developed
dealer network in the motorcycle industry.
"In addition to cementing our number
1 sales position, we're also delighted with
our racing results, retaining the Superbike
championship with the CBR1000RR Fireblade
and the SX2 Supercross title on board the
"2016 is shaping up to be a much bigger
year for Honda. With the Africa Twin and all-
new CBR500 kicking off in the first quarter,
plus a host of new model announcements to
come, we are certain of remaining Australia's
favourite motorcycle brand in 2016."

ANCAP awards 5
stars to updated
A 5 star ANCAP safety rating has been awarded
to the updated Hyundai Tucson following a
number of design and production changes.
The rating applies to all Tucson variants
built from 17 November 2015 in South Korea
and 16 December 2015 in the Czech Republic
when several safety-related improvements
were introduced. 2015 model Tucson s built
prior to these dates either have a 4 star ANCAP
rating (2.0 litre GDi variant) or are unrated.
"It is encouraging to see Hyundai make a
number of design and production changes
to improve the safety of the vehicle and
we commend them for acting quickly to
implement the improvements," ANCAP Chief
Executive Officer James Goodwin said.
"The changes significantly improved the
vehicle s performance in the frontal offset test
which would reduce the possibility of injury to
occupants in the event of a crash," he said.
"This is a positive example of the importance
of local, independent testing and ANCAP
working proactively with vehicle brands to
ensure we have the safest vehicles on the
Australasian market," Mr Goodwin said.
"Consumers considering purchasing a new
or used Tucson should check the build date
to avoid any confusion over the ANCAP safety
rating," he said.
The first ANCAP test of the Tucson in
September 2015 revealed the structural
integrity of the driver footwell was
compromised and there was excessive
rearward brake pedal movement in the
frontal offset test, limiting it to a 4 star
rating. Hyundai subsequently implemented a
number of safety-related improvements and
the updated vehicle achieved a 5 star ANCAP
