Apparently, people don’t want to ride in public transport and taxis anymore, a situation brought up by the COVID-19 pandemic. These days, people prefer to ride alone, mostly on scooters. This fact is backed up by the rise of scooter sales in the UK for 56,6% in July. General two-wheeled vehicle sales surged by 41,9%.
June was also a great month for motorcycle sales, but July beat it out of the ring. Well, the convenience factor of motorcycles is huge for the COVID-19 pandemic.
As expected, commuters are the main factor of this sales increase. People are turning to two-wheelers to get from their home to work, which makes sense. Motorcycles are cheaper than a car and will keep you away from folks who might have the potential to infect you with the virus.
Some dealers even didn’t have enough bikes in their stock, which further pictures the surge in motorcycle demand. Who knows if this trend will continue throughout the rest of the year?
