Sales of motorcycles in developed markets were up due to higher unit sales in all regions driven by a boom in outdoor and family recre-ation. This increase resulted in a reduction in losses. Conversely, inven-tory shortages continued, attributable to insufficient supplies of parts such as semiconductors and to logistics delays caused by a lack of shipping containers. While these operations were unable to turn a profit, a reduction in losses was achieved.

Despite reduced production volumes due to supply shortages of semiconductors and other parts as well as personnel shortages, net sales increased as a result of higher unit sales and unit prices. Operating income also increased substantially owing to expanded sales, the benefits of efforts to lower the fixed cost ratio through the growing prevalence of teleworking and use of digital technologies facilitating such workstyles, and more favorable foreign exchange rates. These factors helped absorb the impacts of soaring logistics and raw material costs.emphasizing both COVID-19 countermeasures and a measured resumption of economic activities.
