The Netherlands Motorcycles Industry Trend and Perspectives

The Dutch 2-wheeler market has always anticipated trends and in the pre-covid period was the first on growing a relevant electric scooter segment, becoming the largest in Europe in this segment, with the total market pushed up for years.

Now the electric manufacturers are facing troubles, mainly originated by the Chinese supply chain and the scooter segment is sharply declining, bringing down the entire industry.

Year to Date April sales have been 18.933 (+4.6%) driven by faster recovery in the motorcycle segment (+7.7%) versus the scooter (+2.7%).

Following the sharp decline reported last year, the electric segment is recovering (+20.0%).

Looking at top manufacturer’s performance, Piaggio

is market leader with sales up 3.8%, ahead of the La Souris Commercial (-2.8%) and the leader among motorcycle specialist, Yamaha (+13.1%).

To be mentioned the acceleration of Kawasaki (+38.6%), BMW (+25.8%) and Suzuki (+64.5).
