The Motor Cycle Industry Association (MCIA) has released the registration figures for the L-Category sector (Motorcycles, scooters and light three and four wheel motorised vehicles), showing an 81.7% increase in registrations.
The most recent data covers the period ending February 2022 and shows 5212 machines being registered compared with 2868 in 2021.
Although adventure bikes are once again building on the strong start to the year, with registrations ahead of 2021 by 138%, scooters are also performing well with 388 registrations in 2022, a 51.6% increase over the 256 scooters registered in the same period of 2021.

Tony Campbell of MCIA said: “Against a lockdown of 2021, a year-on-year increase in registrations was expected. However, the sector is performing way beyond what we thought, and we do expect this trend to continue into the spring.
This industry has a key role to play in the decarbonisation of road transport while at the same time leisure and sport users continue to contribute to the wider UK economy, all of which means we need the support of Government to ensure the 10 key actions from the joint action plan are delivered upon.”
