Report Highlights

The number of newly registered motorcycles dipped in 2011 by 2.2%; from 100,100 to 97,900. This continued the decline in new motorcycles year-on-year since 2008, illustrated by the CAGR for 2007-11f of -9.6%. This is perhaps not a surprising trend as consumer spending power has been squeezed.

Groupama was the third largest insurer by GWP in 2010, with an 11.8% share of the market. GWP increased by 1.6% from GBP19.5m to GBP19.8m as market share expanded by 0.9%. The Group's announcement in January 2012 that its UK private insurance arm is to be sold, including Carole Nash, has stirred uncertainty over the future shape of the market.

Scooters accounted for 34.4% of motorcycles registered for the first time in 2011; up by 4.3 percentage points on 2010. This is due to the economy and convenience they offer via insurance premiums, road taxes and fuel savings as well as parking and traffic considerations.
