July 7th, 2020.

Having been denied much of the first two months of the traditional season by the virus lockdown, motorcycle and scooter dealers benefitted from a rewarding June, with eager buyers pushing the month end figure up 14.8% on last year to 13,361.

Within these figures scooters were up by an 43.1% to and motorcycles by 8.0%, when compared with June 2019.

Although these encouraging figures will no doubt include those who would have ordinarily bought during the months of lockdown, the big increases in the sales of scooters and commuter motorcycles suggest that many buyers are those who have been deterred from using public transport and for whom walking and cycling are not viable. These new riders have now experienced the many benefits of PTWs, including their agility, avoidance of traffic congestion, ease of parking and low ownership costs. They will have discovered a shorter commute that puts extra time into their day, money in their pocket and takes away stress. Consequently, MCIA continues to call on the government to fully endorse PTWs and to prioritise them in transport planning.
