As the country’s economy starts to recoup from the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, expect motorcycle sales to slowly pick back up once again after what has been a slow year.
According to the Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association, total sales from January to November this year reached 1,072,926 units, a 31.5% drop from 1,565,759 from the same time period last year. At the same time, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Automotive Federation reported that production in the country dipped by 51.8%.
