At the half-way mark (ie, June), the 10 most popular new bikes in the UK are:

1 Yamaha YZF R1 1,928 sold
2 Honda CBR 600 RR 1,345
3 Honda CBR 125 R 1,256
4 Honda CBR 1000 RR 1,218
5 Suzuki SV 650 S 1,025
6 Suzuki GSXR 1000 986
7 Suzuki GSXR 600 971
8 Suzuki GSXR 750 958
9 Aprilia RSV Mille 904
10 Yamaha FZ6 Fazer 876

Of course, if scooters were shown, then there would be two entries into the top 10:

6 Honda SCV 100 Lead 1,014
10 Piaggio NRG 918

So superbikes still dominate the UK sales figures. What interests me here is the popularity of the CBR125R. Also nice to see the SV650S is still selling well - means I'll be able to pick up a bargain in a couple of years when I'm looking for something new(ish) ;)

The other thing that interests me is the GSXR 750 is selling well - the 750 class has been all but dropped by the 'Big 4'. Perhaps, given the sales figures, there is a place for this class after all?
