A total of 65 million Wiimotes have been sold in the US alone. Just over 30 million of those were bundled with Wii system. Another 12.92 million were bundled with Wii Play.Standalone White Wiimotes make up the majority of non bundled sales at 18.56 million, while the one year old black Wiimote has sold 2.44 million. Pink ones have sold 467,500 and blue ones stand at 462,500 units sold. Very impressive numbers all round.
