Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam
Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (VAMM) has said its five members,
namely Honda, Piaggio, Suzuki, SYM, and Yamaha, sold over 3.25 million
motorbikes in 2019, a year-on-year decline of 3.87 percent.
Honda is making up nearly 81 percent of the
sector’s market share with the most diverse range of products.
The five VAMM members are manufacturing and
distributing nearly 100 models of motorcycles with prices ranging from tens of
millions of VND to over one billion VND each.
Other domestic brands present in Vietnam’s
motorcycle market are VinFast and Pega, as well as foreign firms such as Kymco,
Ducacti, Kawasaki, BMW, KTM, Benelli, Harley Davidson, Triumph, Royal Enfield,
According to insiders, as Vietnamese people’s incomes
have increases, more customers have been switching to buying cars. Last year,
400,000 cars were sold at home, a record number over the past 20 years.
Air pollution in big cities has also made a
large number of people use their personal cars or buses instead of motorbikes to
ensure health and reduce traffic jam, experts said./.
