The German market reached 165,311 units compared to Italy’s 99,000. 

For 2020, BMW launched the F900R and F900XR models. The latter could take a part of Yamaha’s Tracer 900 market share. Honda also has a new model, the Africa Twin Adventure Sports which may, in Italy, take a part of the market from the BMW R1250GS.
