April Motorcycle, Scooter and Other L-Category Vehicles Registration Statistics

MCIA has today published the market data for April 2024, for new motorcycle, scooter, and other L-Category vehicles.  

The April market closed at a positive 1.1% above 2023, with adventure, road sport, and scooter styles all showing healthy growth +15.8% +11.9% and +6.2% respectively. Electric powertrains also grew by 23.2% when compared to April 2023.

Year to date registrations are tracking just ahead of last year by 0.1% which has been influenced by a strong scooter market and recovery in the electric powertrain segments.  

Tony Campbell, CEO of MCIA, said: "April's registration figures once again demonstrate a robust market for our Industry tracking in-line with 2023 figures. Whilst there continues to be economic and political uncertainty, scooters, motorcycles, and the wider L-Category sector continue to offer consumers an alternative to using a car and not having to rely on public transport where often they face strikes and cancellations.

If we take in to consideration the poor weather impacting the riding season, we are confident the sector can look forward to a good season once Spring and Summer finally arrive”.
