Kawasaki has seen an increase in wholesale units sold in North America compared to the year-ago quarter.

Its parent company, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, said its North American unit sales through its first three quarters totaled 73,000 units, a 22 percent rise over a year ago. That wholesale unit total includes motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs and PWC. For motorcycles alone, the company’s wholesale sales in North American remain on par with a year ago at 37,000 units.

Kawasaki is forecasting its fiscal year sales in North America to rise significantly over a year ago. The company believes it will wholesale 121,000 powersports units in its current fiscal year, a 51 percent rise over its previous fiscal year. That total is expected to include 70,000 motorcycles.
