The majority of the units, 5,821 of them, or 66 percent of the market, were, as expected, motorcycles, while the demand for scooters climbed by 7.6 percent to 2,350 new registrations. Other categories, such as mopeds, experienced growth of 7.8% with 597 new units registered, and three-wheelers experienced growth of 10% with 73 new registrations this August.

The overall number of motorbikes registered from January to August is currently at 83,821 units, a 5.9% rise. A total of 59,318 motorcycles were sold, an increase of 7% from the same time last year.

With 16,914 units, the naked motorbike was the most popular model chosen by customers. However, this segment is down 2% from the first eight months of 2021. With 15,259 units sold, adventure bikes are closely following the naked category and have seen an increase of 11% from the previous year. Meanwhile, sales of classic cars increased by 14% over the same period last year, and there were 8,634 new registrations overall. All other market sectors are expanding, with off-road motorcycle sales increasing by 11% while touring bike sales are up 22%.

While this was happening, sales of scooters and mopeds increased by 2.3% and 10%, respectively. Three-wheelers, on the other hand, have shrunk by 7% year over year.

Between January and August, 18,898 scooters were sold, and Mopeds ended the eighth month of the year with little under 5,000 units sold. The total number of three-wheelers sold from the beginning of the year through August was 611.

With a growth rate of 25.6 percent, the electric segment is also expanding quickly, as evidenced by the segment's 4,832 unit sales. The majority of these automobiles, though, are mopeds.

It's also important to keep in mind that the UK market favours bikes with a displacement between 126 and 650 ccs or "middle displacement" models. From the beginning of the year to August, 17,210 of these middle-displacement motorcycles were sold. Large displacement motorbikes (with displacements between 651cc and 1,000cc) brought in 16,745 units, followed by over-a-liter bikes with 14,060 units.
