The motorcycle sector faces 2020 with optimism and expects to grow 3%

-

The motorcycle industry has presented in 2019 the best results since 2008. In total, 202,079 vehicles were registered, including motorcycles, mopeds, tricycles and quadricycles. The sector is confident that this barrier of 200,000 units will be overcome again in 2020, growing 3%. A more moderate growth, but that will contribute to reaffirm the motorcycle as an alternative of transport increasingly used by citizens.

In 2019, motorcycle registrations accounted for 12% of the total automotive market in Spain. A situation driven by the growth of the sector in all the autonomous communities. Catalonia was the largest market with more than 50,000 units, one in four of the state total. Madrid was the autonomy that showed the highest growth: 22.4%.

“It is good news that more and more citizens choose the motorcycle as their main means of transport,” says Víctor González, president of Anesdor and CEO of Yamaha Motor España.

The motorcycle market grew by 11.1%, reaching 175,858 units. The mopeds had an increase of 23.4% and closed the year with 19,078 units registered. On the other hand, the rest of light vehicles (tricycles and quadricycles) increased by 9.9% to add a total of 7,416 units.

Electromobility became a real alternative in 2019. 5.8% of the motorcycles registered were electric motorcycles. Although the rental channel was significantly predominant in this segment, the acquisition by individuals also increased markedly. In total, 12,225 electric motorcycles were registered, 66.8% compared to 2018.

The motorcycles, they explain from Anesdor, are an efficient solution to decongest traffic, rationalize transport spending and face the challenges of climate change and improve air quality.

According to the European Environment Agency, motorcycles produce CO2 emissions close to the data per passenger and kilometer of buses and much lower than other private motor vehicles.

“The motorcycle is a very efficient vehicle in its emissions and the administration must take it into account when establishing traffic restrictions in cities,” says José María Riaño, general secretary of Anesdor. .
