WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported September sales of 28,874 vehicles, an increase of 8.3 percent from the 26,660 vehicles sold in the same month a year ago.

BMW Motorrad Sales
The BMW Motorrad USA dealer network sold 955 motorcycles in September, an increase of 20.9 percent from the total of 790 motorcycles sold in September 2012.

The new for 2013 F 800 GT and F 800 GS Adventure helped drive growth of 36 percent in F-Series machines with 262 deliveries compared to 193 units in September 2012.

R-Series growth came from the R 1200 RT (+27 percent) with 76 retails compared to 60 last year, with the new R 1200 GSW helping drive a 24 percent increase in boxer sales with 318 total retails compared to 256 last year.

BMW's leadership of the maxi scooter segment was further reinforced with 64 scooter retails in September.

With year on year growth of 17.8 percent in a negative market, BMW Motorrad is ideally placed to take advantage of the influx of 2014 model year machines in the final quarter.
