After years of steady growth, the motorcycle market in Southeast Asia has nearly reached saturation. Rising incomes encourage people to buy cheap cars instead of upgrading their motorcycles. OEMs need to face these changes and track down new sales markets. Business use two-wheelers are a promising option. Ride-hailing and e-commerce are enjoying growing popularity and demand, especially in Southeast Asia. Just to give an example: In 2010, the motorcycle-hailing start-up GO-JEK started with 20 taxi drivers in Jakarta. In the meantime, it has more than 400,000 drivers in 50 cities. Prosperous e-commerce too depends on reliable delivery, dominated by motorcycle delivery boys.
