In this market research report, Technavio covers the market outlook and growth prospects of the global semi-automatic motorcycles market for 2017-2021. The market is further categorized into two segments based on transmission type, which are dual clutch transmission (DCT) and other transmissions. The other transmissions segment dominated the market with close to 84% of the market share in 2016.
“Semi-automatic motorcycles are easier to ride as the riders need not engage the clutch while shifting gears. The adoption of motorcycles by baby boomers and female riders is increasing in developed regions like North America,” says Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead automotive manufacturing research expert from Technavio.
Technavio’s automotive research analysts segment the global semi-automatic motorcycles market into the following regions:
In 2016, with a market share of close to 46%, EMEA emerged as the market leader in the global semi-automatic motorcycles market, followed by the Americas with over 40% and APAC with a little over 14% of the total market share.

The demand for semi-automatic motorcycles is growing due to the comfort offered to the rider. Also, the increased penetration of scooters will compel individuals in the region to prefer clutch-less systems. The semi-automatic motorcycles market in EMEA is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 18%.
The presence of BMW Motorrad provides prospects for semi-automatic motorcycle market in the region as the company has BMW Gear Shift Assistant Pro as fitment in selected variants. Germany is the prime market for the company, followed by the US. Also, Ducati, which has developed the DQS system for clutch-less operation, has a strong presence in Europe.

“The other factor that is crucial for wide adoption of the clutch-less motorcycles in Europe is the preference for two-wheelers instead of a car, due to high traffic and less pollution. People across Europe depend on two-wheelers for their daily commute to and from the workplace,” says Siddharth.
