The motorcycles industry is really a relevant sector within the Peruvian industrial production with a wide group of manufacturers active with local manufacturing facilities, arrived here from Japan, China and India to challenge the several local brands.

The market could be considered broken down in two different types of customer areas, with the metropolitan zone around the capital Lima, similar to the other South American metropolis, with demand for scooter, moped and tricycles for business purpose and the rest of the country, characterized for still poor road infrastructures, where the two wheeler demand is concentrated on off road, enduro and ATV models.

In the last decade the trend was positive, with annual sales continuously growing up, driven by the economic development and the correlated surging demand for individual mobility, both for business and leisure.

As in general all Latin American people, Peruvian love motorcycles and are huge followers of the industry development and racing activities.

The positive market pathway was interrupted in the 2018, actually the all-time record year, when the government introduced the Impuesto Selectivo al Consumo (ISC) a new tax for all new vehicles sold for private use, with a 10% due for petrol vehicles and a 20% for diesel.
