Data Sources

MotorCyclesData sources Official Data for over 70 markets in the World, having established relations – some time in exclusive – with local agencies like Minister of Transportations and or Manufacturers Associations. In addition several other sources integrate data for new markets, missing official sources.


MotorcyclesData Team is hardly working to assembly data sourced from over 200 different sources all around the World checking and double-checking the quality of data crossing information received on the same country from different sources.

The most of data are received by Official Sources – and this is the case for almost all the countries in North, Central and South Africa, in West and East Europe, in India, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand and ASEAN countries.

For new markets (in Middle East, East Asia, some Latam countries) where official sources are not yet available, we collect data through our local correspondent which use local sources, including media, distributors, importers.

As far as China, while we actually have the total market figures and several brands/model, we still miss the total pictures.
