Motorcycles: United States
This report forecasts to 2022 US motorcycle demand and production in units. Demand is also forecast to 2022 in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand in units is segmented by product in terms of: internal combustion engine (ICE) medium and heavy; ICE light; ICE scooters, mopeds, and motorbikes; and electric.
To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017; production 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.
