If the large number of motorcycles on the road is not enough to convince you that the two-wheel industry is recovering at a stronger and faster pace than any other sectors, check this out: The Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association (MDPPA) has recorded a total of 719,232 units sold from January 1 to June 20 this year.
These figures represent a 59.5% increase as compared to 451,034 motorcycles sold during the same period last year at the height of the pandemic.
Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) is still leading the pack with 329,540 units sold. Honda is followed by Yamaha Motor Philippines (YMPH) with 236,125 units; Suzuki Philippines Motorcycles with 76,174 units; and Kawasaki Philippines with 77,393 units.
By category, AT (scooters) maintains its lead on the sales chart with a total of 430,194 units sold (compared to 231,306 units last year); followed by BU (business unit) with 136,115 units (117,266 units last year); MPD (moped or underbone) with 120,358 units (86,174 units last year); and ST (street bikes) with 28,237 units (14,765 units last year).
Our sources say these motorcycle sales figures would have been higher if not for the supply problem in some of the models, which are mostly imported from abroad.
But more than these figures, we’re pretty sure that you’re more interested in knowing which motorcycle products are on the leaderboard. Here are the Top 10 motorbikes in terms of sales performance for the first semester of 2021:
1) Honda Click 125i (121,902 units sold)
2) Yamaha NMax (63,546 units sold)
3) Yamaha Mio i 125 S (57,012 units sold)
4) Honda BeAT Fi (48,328 units sold)

At the rate things are going with the MDPPA, do you think it can reach the 1.5-million mark by the end of the year?
