BMW Sales Up 4.3% Through September

BMW Motorrad delivered 82,779 motorcycles from January through September, up 4.3 percent from worldwide sales of 79,333 units during the same nine-month period in 2006.

BMW officials say the company achieved the growth through the introduction of its new mid-size model range and despite a strong Euro, which keeps products such as German-made motorcycles pricier in foreign markets.
