As delivered by this AISI’s Chairman during the speech, after scoring a growth of 43.5% with a sales rate of around 3.7 million units in 2020, the national motorcycle market is predicted to climb 38.5%, turning into 5 million units in 2021. To maintain this improvement, Johannes claimed his party would continue to retain the achievement, one of which is conducting the IMOS 2022.

“We also aim to convey that the domestic motorcycle market in Indonesia has attained 3.6 million units per September this year, lower of 4% compared to the earlier. However, we have vigorous confidence to boost the national two-wheel industry to reach around 5.1 – 5.4 million units in 2022. We are incredibly optimistic about reaching this goal as we noticed the recovery of the semiconductor crisis, sustained economic growth, and well-maintained people purchasing power in the country,” Johannes explained.
