Posted:

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), the peak body for the automotive industry in Australia, today released sales for motorcycles and off highway vehicles (OHVs) for full year 2020.

Total sales for the year were recorded at 108,926 units, an increase of 19,727 vehicles and 22.1 per cent on full year 2019 when 89,199 sales were recorded.

OHVs demonstrated significant sales growth during the year, with 24,856 vehicles sold. This represents a strong increase of 6,950 vehicles, or 38.8 per cent, over the same period in 2019 when 17,906 vehicles were sold.

Off-Road motorcycles also recorded strong growth, with 44,697 vehicles sold during the year ‰ÛÒ a 30.3 per cent increase on the 2019 calendar year when a total of 34,298 units were sold.

Similarly, road bikes exhibited an increase in sales, with 34,912 units sold during 2020. This represents an increase of 9.2 per cent, or 2,931 units, on calendar year 2019 when 31,981 units were sold.

Scooters were the only segment of the 2020 motorcycle and OHV full year sales to record a decrease. A total of 4,461 units were sold, 553 fewer, or 11 per cent less, than the 5,014 sales recorded in 2019.

Tony Weber, chief executive of the FCAI, said the increased sales were welcomed by the industry. ‰ÛÏGiven the difficult market conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is reassuring to see segments of the market continuing to perform well.

‰ÛÏThe rise in popularity of personal transport in this segment demonstrates that OHVs, off-road motorcycles and road bikes were a preferred option for many recreational and commuting activities during the year,‰Û
