NADA Guides, which publishes a well known book of used vehicle prices, announced today that the number of people researching motorcycle purchases increased 48% in March 2008, compared to March 2007.

However, actual sales still lagged.
The company, a vehicle pricing and information website, says it believes this growth in interest -- in spite of lackluster sales -- is an indicator consumers are increasingly considering motorcycles as 'daily drivers' versus luxury purchases as concern grows over soaring fuel prices.

Most Researched Short-Range Commuters

1. Yamaha Majesty 400
2. Honda Silver Wing(TM)
3. Suzuki Burgman 400

Most Researched Mid-Range Commuters

1. Honda Shadow Spirit 750
2. Suzuki Boulevard S50
3. Kawasaki Vulcan 500

Most Researched Long-Range Commuters

1. Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard
2. Honda Gold Wing Airbag
3. Yamaha Royal Star Venture

Something tells me that when sales of two-wheeled vehicles finally breaks open into mass hysteria, the scooters are going to take over the market.
