Highlights

  • India is the most affected market of 2020 with a 37.4 per cent slump
  • Lockdowns across the world affected sales and production
  • ASEAN countries have lost 23.5 per cent two-wheeler sales till August

Motorcycle sales around the world fell by 9 million units in the first eight months of 2020, in a reflection of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The key reasons for the fall in sales is attributed to the shutdown periods involving the industries in almost all countries, blocking production, shipments and distribution. Up till the end of August 2020, as many as 21.9 million two-wheelers were sold across the world, but that number is still 29.7 per cent down from sales of the same period in 2019. In fact, the first four months of 2020 accounted for a sales slide of 42.2 per cent.
