In facts, cars, lorries and public transportations have more relevance due to the high urbanization reached by the country (over 43%) and by the geographical characteristic, with most of actives along the coastal and river areas.

The 2/3 wheeler market has been one of the best worldwide in the last decade and the covid19 just enhanced the demand for two wheelers, with sales boosted towards new records.

The Egyptian motorcycles market is one of the most variable in Africa and in the World, being heavily depended by price fluctuation and by duties, which are too frequently modified by Governments.
