  • Motorcycle Sales in Indonesia Fall on Declining Purchasing Power

    Domestic motorcycle sales in Indonesia declined 5 percent year-on-year (y/y) to 680,642 units in October 2014 (from the same month last year). Particularly weaker sales of the underbone motorcycle impacted negatively on total October motorcycle sales. As people are concerned about a looming subsidized fuel price hike this month (causing accelerated inflation, thus curbing people’s purchasing power), consumers postpone the purchase of a motorcycle. The government is expected to raise prices of subsidized fuels by almost 50 percent.

    Domestic sales of motorcycles in Indonesia are expected to have fallen by 20 percent to 550,000 in December 2013 compared to the previous month (688,527).

This then led to less production and distribution of motorcycles to Indonesian dealers.
