ADP Lightspeed reports that a large sampling of its V-twin dealer customers experienced a 17.2 percent year-over-year increase in their sales departments in December.

This statistic is just one of many found in ADP Lightspeed’s “Same Store Sales” report for December, which gives a rundown of year-over-year sales changes at 612 metric retailers and 173 V-twin retailers. The report is broken down further by department (parts, service and sales) and geographic regions. It also says how many dealers were up or down in each department.

Overall sales at the V-twin stores were up 9.3 percent in December, led by the 17.2 percent sales department increase. Overall sales at metric stores increased 5.6 percent, with revenue up in all three departments.

The company’s Hal Ethington also has posted an article in which he explains how 38 percent of reporting ADP Lightspeed users were actually up in parts sales in 2010.

The company invites people to see additional reports on the Data Services page of its website. The page notes that participating dealers automatically transmit each day’s sales data to a database held in the company’s offices.
