MCIA have released the November month and year to date new vehicle registration figures for motorcycles, scooters, and other L-category vehicles.
November volumes, although down by 8.8% compared to 2021, the year-to-date market looks to be close in line with the industry forecast of 2% ahead of 2021, and 9% up on 2019 which is considered the last “normal year” following the disruption to the market by the pandemic.
The Adventure segment continues to perform consistently up by 5.7%, which now as a segment represents 18% of the total L-category market.
Motorcycle Live, MCIAs motorcycle & scooter industry showcase event held at The NEC, Birmingham, attracted almost 90,000 visitors over the nine-day open period. The number of visitors riding at the show, from taking their first ride on both electric and small capacity scooters and motorcycles, to more experienced, fully licensed riders trying larger motorcycles, on and off road, exceeded forecast figures, underlining the appetite for using our products for travel, fun and urban commuting.
Tony Campbell, CEO of MCIA said, “Having welcomed almost 90,000 visitors to Motorcycle Live and having received positive feedback from visitors, exhibitors and industry, underlines the appetite that remains for exploring both new and existing technologies in an experiential environment.
The MCIA document ‘Journey to a Brighter Destination’ highlights the importance of ensuring leisure riders continue to thrive in an environment where their needs are met. Whilst the industry welcomes a new demographic, it remains of the utmost importance that both segments are given every opportunity to flourish”.
