German Motorcycles Industry Trend and Perspectives

During the last four years, the 2-wheeler market in Germany has been stable, keeping the level hit in the 2020, when covid emergency pushed up the market at over 230.000 annual sales.

Indeed, a weak economy and low consumption rates, with high inflation are not supporting demand for new motorcycles. And considering that the expected push up created by electric vehicles is vanishing after an early start, the logic market trend is flat.

And so it was during the first quarter 2024 as well, with total sales at 57.158 (-1.9%), before to see a strong increase in April, when sales have been 29.015 (+15.6%) with Year to Date figures at 86.262 (+3.7%), although the EVs segment is declining again (-17.3%).

Looking at top manufacturer’s performance, Honda has taken back the leadership as in 2023 with sales up 3.7%.

In second place BMW is near (+2.5%) followed by Piaggio, third with sales down 0.5%.

In 4th place Yamaha (+13.2%) ahead of Kawasaki (+10.3%), KTM (+13.8%) and Aprilia (+5.8%).
