Dealer demand propels off-road segment above auction price trends

The off-road vehicle segment outperformed seasonal sales price trends in May, reflecting increased demand from dealerships, according to data National Powersport Auctions provided Powersports Finance 

As spring comes to a close, we expect similar volume to continue into June with a slight decline in pricing,” Business Development Manager Tony Altieri said in the report.  

Each category in the off-road segment — motocross (MX), side-by-sides and ATVs grew in seasonal sales price year over year and outperformed the five-year price trend.
