Motorcycles Market Trends




  • Consumer inclination towards electric bikes to boost the market growth




The rise in consumer inclination towards electric or e-bikes accelerates market growth. These bikes are widely adopted as they are smaller in size, provide health benefits and offer higher speed with lesser effort. The surge in the requirement for motorcycles for various purposes, such as daily transport and adventure, drives the market further. The growing disposable income of consumers and improvement in living standards led to using private motorcycles instead of taking public transportation, which is the factor that pours the market growth.


Further, different motorcycles, such as cruisers, adventure bikes, scooters, and sports bikes, have different performance levels, stability, handling, and controls. Riders must be agile and alert while riding, as motorcycles provide little protection in case of an accident. Motorcycles accidents have become a major concern for OEMs, government, and road safety authorities. For instance, motorcyclists comprise 34% of all traffic fatalities in the US. According to NHTSA, in 2020, out of 5,458 accidents in the US, 76% were riders, and 24% were passengers. Collision with fixed objects is another major concern for governments and motorcyclists. Further, in 2020, 34% of motorcycles had fatal crashes with fixed objects due to rider errors, such as overspeeding, under-cornering, running wide on a curve due to excess speed, or a fall due to over-braking.


Additionally, an electric motorcycle is an electric two-wheeled vehicle in which electricity is stored in a rechargeable battery. The increased environmental concerns and the low fuel efficiency of conventional motorcycles are major factors driving the demand for e-motorcycles. Several governmental bodies have devised new incentive schemes for electric motorcycles to boost the market's growth. Technological advancements, such as high-speed handling efficiency, compact size, better acceleration, and reduced motor weight, are expected to drive the growth of the electric motorcycles market CAGR across the globe in recent years.


However, the rise in demand for sports bicycles due to the increased use of bicycles in trekking and leisure activities is one of the major factors driving the growth of the motorcycles market. An increase in the number of cycling events and biking expeditions to difficult terrains, including steep mountain ranges, are major factors driving the growth of the motorcycles market revenue.
