This industry research report identifies Christini Technologies, Rokon, and Yamaha Motor Corporation as the key vendors in the global all-wheel drive motorcycles market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by geographical regions such as the Americas, APAC, and EMEA.

Overview of the global all-wheel drive motorcycles market

Research analysis on the global all-wheel drive (AWD) motorcycles market identifies that the need for AWD motorcycles for special operations will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market.  Technavio’s market research analysts predict that in terms of units, this market will grow at a CAGR of nearly 21% by 2021. In defense, most of the vehicles used are all-terrain vehicles. The requirement for fast, agile, and efficient transportation for scouts, war fighters, security patrols, and guards in the field has raised the demand for the defense purpose off-road motorcycles. A change in the trend has been observed in the market with the fully electric and hybrid off-road motorcycles gaining wide popularity. These motorcycles are specifically manufactured for defense purposes and are increasing the requirement of the AWD motorcycles for special purposes. This rising need for the AWD motorcycles for the special operations would be one of the factors for propelling the AWD motorcycle market during the forecast period.

The emergence of AWD snow bikes will be the one of the key trends that will gain traction in the all-wheel drive motorcycles market. Developments in the off-road motorcycles have given rise to the introduction of snow bikes. The AWD snow bikes are manufactured by not only altering the transmission system but also by modifying the wheel design to offer the needed floatation to them. The presence of an efficient wheel design to ride on the snow has led to the fitment of the rear wheel drive system. But the growing demand for higher efficiency in snow bikes has forced the manufacturers to manufacture AWD snow bikes.

Competitive landscape and key vendors  

The all-wheel drive motorcycle market has lesser competition compared to the other motorcycle segments. This is due to the lower volume of sales of AWD motorcycles and because the acceptance and usage of the AWD motorcycles as commuter motorcycles is not possible. Also, the OEMs do not design or manufacture the AWD motorcycles on their own due to the slow growth in the demand.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Christini Technologies
  • Rokon
  • Yamaha Motor Corporation

The other prominent vendors in the market are Ural Motorcycles, Honda, KTM, and BMW.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the all-wheel drive motorcycles market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

This market study estimates that in terms of geographic regions, the Americas will be the major revenue contributor to the all-wheel drive motorcycles market throughout the forecast period. The main reason for this market lead is due to the introduction and faster adoption of AWD technology and rising need for AWD motorcycles in the adventure tourer segment in the region.

Growth drivers, challenges, and upcoming trends: Electric all-wheel drive motorcycles

The growing trend of manufacturing electric and hybrid off-road motorcycles has impacted the AWD motorcycle market as well. The need for reducing the emission of CO2 has also given rise to the development of electric off-road motorcycles and considerably driving the off-road motorcycle market. The off-road electric bike manufactured by the companies like KTM and Zero Motorcycles is made to suit enduro racing. Moreover, the off-road electric mountain bikes are observed to have rapid adoption due to many manufacturers supplying electric mountain bikes such as Volton Alation, Haibike, Bulls E-Stream, and Magnum Peak which are expected to influence the off-road motorcycle market positively.
