July Powered Two-Wheeler Registration Statistics
MCIA has today published the market data for July, and full year-to-date for new motorcycle, scooter and other L-Category registrations.
July has a been a challenging month for some segments, not least given the changeable and often unpredictable weather affecting the market. The July market closed -9.1% with the year-to-date position now -3.6% compared to 2022. Whilst its is disappointing to see a small decline, the market still remains ahead of 2019 which was considered the last “normal” year to compare back to.
Larger capacity segments of the market continue to perform well in July at 30.6% ahead the same month last year, which now sees a year-to-date growth of 27.3% for the same period in 2022.
Tony Campbell, CEO of MCIA, said: “At this point in the year we would expect to see leisure motorcycles flourish during the summer months, and whilst largely unaffected by the seasonally poor weather the wider cost of living impacts and a downturn in last mile delivery fleet volumes are affecting the overall position.
As we close in on the Government’s decision to announce phase out dates for the sector (expected in the Autumn), we urge the Minister to take fully into account the technical challenges the sector will face in addition to the fact this sector contributes only 0.46% of the CO2 produced by transport in the UK”.
