Demand for motorcycles has increased steadily over the past years due to their affordability factor, fuel efficiency, and wide variety on offer.

As per its report, since Honda opened its first U.S. plant in 1982, almost every major European, Japanese, and Korean automaker has produced vehicles and invested more than US$ 75 billion in the United States.

The latest report by Fact.MR says Sales of motorcycles are anticipated to register a CAGR of 3.5%  through 2031.
