**Honda Sold More Bikes Here Last Quarter, Fewer Last Year **
Honda has released its financial statement for the first quarter of 2005, and in contrast to Harley (which saw a 1% drop in sales in the first quarter), Honda's first-quarter sales in North America were up about 1.5%, from 227,000 to 230,000 units. However, its North American sales for the year ending March 2005 were down almost 2%, from 656,000 to 643,000. (Those figures include ATVs.) Its motorcycle sales worldwide (which includes many small motorcycles in other markets) rose from 9.2 million to almost 10.5 million.
