Default 2010-11 Snowmobile Sales numbers (Canada and USA)

As reported by Powersports Business:

"Snowmobile sales, interest up

Powersports Business
Tuesday June 7, 2011

Snowmobile sales increased 10 percent worldwide during the 2010-11 season, and more units were registered than the previous year, according to a release by the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association.

Sales of new snowmobiles in the United States were up 5 percent, with 51,796 units sold. The average price decreased slightly to $8,397. New unit sales in Canada were up 8 percent with 40,878 models sold. Canada’s average price was also down slightly to $9,361. Sales in Europe and Russia were up 20 percent, with 30,389 units sold. PG&A sales in North America increased 7 percent.

The number of snowmobiles registered across all ISMA regions also increased. The U.S. saw a hike of 50,158 over the 1.5 million from 2010. Canada experienced a jump of 20,168, to bring its total to 602,902, and European registrations rose to 530,000.

The Go Snowmobiling! - An essential resource for snowmobilers across the United States website also saw an increase in visitors. The site attracted more than 3 million visitors on the site during the season, with 18 percent saying they do not own a snowmobile but are interested in purchasing.

The survey also found:
• The average age of a snowmobiler was 43 years old, though the median age is tracking lower to include additional Generation Y customers entering the market.
• About 65 percent of snowmobile buyers purchased their first sled this past season.
• On average, snowmobilers rode 1,141 miles each, which is 10 percent more than during the 2009-10 season.
• The majority of snowmobilers in North America are club and/or association members.

All this sums up what I have been saying all along....we Canadians are getting F**ked over by big corporations...so much for the BS on spread between Canada and the USA being the due to the amount of market share
USA Sales 50,000 units Canada 40,000
There should be no difference at all
Also Europe 30,000 units does anyone know how the pricing compares to USA and Canada? From a few links I checked out Europe is cheaper than both Canada and the USA on most major manufactured items.

So what are they going to say is the reasoning next......USA gives better coporate tax breaks.

wow, good news.

• About 65 percent of snowmobile buyers purchased their first sled this past season.

i found this pretty interesting.

i wonder if the economy here in the states wouldn't be in the shitter how many more sleds would have been sold.
