Australian Off Road Motorcycle Sales Figures Drop By 17 Percent

Posted:

The FCAI, the peak body for Australia’s automotive industry, has today released sales figures for motorcycles, scooters, and off-highway vehicles (OHV) for the first quarter of 2022.

A total of 24,338 motorcycles, scooters and OHVs were sold between January and March. This represents a decrease of 10.7 per cent on 2021 figures.

Off-road motorcycles recorded 39.6 percent of overall sales with 9,644 units sold. This is a decrease of 17.2 percent on 2021 figures.
Road motorcycles accounted for 39.9 percent of total sales, recording 9,723 units sold. This is an increase of 12 percent on 2021 figures.

The OHV market recorded a drop of 40 percent on 2021 figures. This amounts to a total of 3,275 units sold representing 13.5 percent of the total market.

Scooters made up the smallest portion of first-quarter sales with 1,696 units sold. This represents an increase of 15 percent on 2021 figures and 7.00 percent of total units sold.

“Motorcycles, scooters, and OHVs are a crucial element in the lives of many Australians, be it on the road or for recreation.” FCAI Chief Executive Tony Weber said.

“In a period of rising fuel costs and increased congestion, now is the time for States and Territories to implement nationally consistent licensing regulations for motorcycles and scooters. Enabling more motorists to move to motorcycles and scooters is a key tool in helping to lower the cost of living and reducing the amount of time road users spend in traffic,” Weber concluded.
