If the four-wheeler market takes a breather, but delivery times remain long and the product continues to be in short supply, the two-wheeler market made another important leap forward in November and is normalizing on the supply front.
After +26% in October, monthly registrations of mopeds, scooters and motorcycles mark another double-digit increase: +35% over the same period last year. But the president of the Confindustria manufacturers’ association, Paolo Magri underlines above all that “the availability of the product finally allows us to measure the real specific weight of the market”. And he adds: “The future is not free from uncertainties, but faced with a substantial overcoming of supply problems, today’s numbers concretely describe the central role of two-wheelers in the mobility market and in the one more linked to use for passion”.
