    1. Thanks for this Todor – we have investigated this and found that some motorbikes were included in the brands’ totals. Very small volumes (single-digits) for BMW, Honda and Peugeot but all of Lifan sales turned out to be motorbikes as you mentioned this and last month. Amended now!
      Thanks again for this insight.
      All the best,
      Matt
