Swiss motorcycle market will decline in 2022 after the previous record year

Töffs remain popular. Slightly fewer two-wheelers were sold on the Swiss motorcycle market in 2022 than in the record previous year. Overall, however, the motor and scooter market has leveled off at a high level, according to the umbrella organization Motosuisse.

According to the Swiss Agency for Motorcycles and Scooters (SFMR), a little less than 49,000 vehicles were newly registered, which corresponds to a decrease of almost 14 percent compared to 2021. However, this is still a good 17 percent more than in the last year before the pandemic, 2019. And without the global supply and raw material problems among manufacturers, the result would have been even better.

In the motorcycle segment, new registrations fell by more than a fifth in 2022. However, this result is distorted by a regulatory effect. Because of the opening of the class up to 125 cubic centimeters displacement – whose models, which are limited to 15 hp engine power, can be driven by 16-year-old newcomers in Switzerland since January 1, 2021, as in the rest of Europe – the market in this category “literally exploded in the previous year », as Motosuisse puts it.
