Motorcycles: United Kingdom

This report forecasts to 2022 UK motorcycle demand and production in units as well as total demand in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand in volume terms is segmented by product in terms of: ICE medium and heavy motorcycles; ICE light motorcycles; ICE scooters, mopeds, and motorbikes; and electric.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand by volume is provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017; total production by volume, total demand by value, and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2007, 2012, and 2017.

In addition to two-wheeled vehicles, trikes (three-wheeled motorcycles) are included in the report numbers. Three-wheeled motorcycles include sidecar motorcycles, which are two-wheeled motorcycles with an attached one-wheel sidecar and traditional or purpose-built motorcycles used for recreational purposes that are fitted with a two-wheeled axle in either the front or rear. Excluded from the scope of this report are separately sold sidecars; three-wheeled auto rickshaws or truck-like "three-wheelers" produced in India, China, and other emerging markets that are used principally for business purposes; and utility vehicles, such as all-terrain vehicles, utility task vehicles, autocycles, and motor vehicle/motorcycle hybrids.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate at that prevailing in 2017.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
