Domestic motorcycle sales in China are closely regulated by local and provincial governments. A series of bans and limitations on the use of motorcycles in Chinese urban areas has notably affected the sales development. Annual motorcycle sales in China have seen a consecutive decrease between 2010 and 2018 and have recovered only slightly in 2019. Simultaneously, motorcycles are among the main transportation means in rural areas of China. For example, Tibet and Guangxi both own over 60 motorcycles per 100 households on average, right after Guangdong.

Motorcycle imports to China are subject to luxury tax, a fact that causes the domestic market to be dominated by local manufacturers. Da Changjiang was China’s leading motorcycle manufacturer, with a sales volume of almost two million units in 2019. In 2014, motorcycles with an engine capacity between 111cc and 125cc accounted for over 40 percent of two-wheeled motorcycle sales. In China’s tricycle sales market, monthly freight tricycle sales outweighed passenger tricycle sales almost six to one.

Due to a decreasing domestic demand, the Chinese motorcycle industry forces motorcycle exports. The export value of automobile parts and motorcycles has increased tenfold over the past ten years, reaching 60.74 billion U.S. dollars in 2012. During the first half of 2014, Chinese motorcycle manufacturer Loncin ranked first with a total export value of about 272 million U.S. dollars.
