    Two wheelers are one of the most affordable and more efficient forms of transportation in low income and developing countries. Motorcycles have powerful engines (even if restricted by law) and in combination with their low weight are capable of higher acceleration and a higher top speed than many cars.


    Motorcycles without gear, or scooters, as they are colloquially known, make for light, efficient and practical two-wheelers, which are also easy to ride. Today, most scooters come with an auto-start button and do not require the rider to kick-start the vehicle. 


    These impacts include rapidly growing congestion, air pollution, energy consumption, traffic accidents, noise, and transport wastes. Growing urban incomes are an important contributor to rapid motorization, but there are other factors as well.

    Street bikes, also known as standard motorcycles, are the most common of all types of motorbikes ridden in India and Africa. They are preferred by new beginners not only because they are cost-effective and offer high mileage, but also because they can be easily repaired, and the damage done to such bikes is minimal owing to the minimal body-work of these motorcycles. 


    Two-wheeled vehicles are among the preferred modes of transport. These are both non-motorized vehicles (e.g., bicycles) and motorized vehicles (power two- or three-wheelers, PTW), which also include three-wheelers. In urban conditions, electric vehicles are gaining popularity, as they are part of the policy to reduce exhaust emissions.



    There are very striking differences in the level of usage of motorcycles between countries in  Africa.  For  example,  in  South  Africa  usage  is  very low, while just to the north, in Angola and  Mozambique,  motorcycle  densities  are  high. 


    There are also striking contrasts in West Africa,  for  example,  between  Nigeria  with relatively high densities in urban areas and Ghana which  has  low  densities. And  sales are growing  rapidly. In 2015, imports of motorcycles into Africa  amounted  to  $1.86  billion,  representing  9.9%  of global motorcycle imports. 


    Nigeria alone imported  motorcycles  worth  $447  million.  But  electric motorcycles are hardly in evidence and there are no policies to promote them. Creating and safeguarding jobs through innovative and problem-solving expertise are just as important as the commitment to the environment, society, and open dialogue. Nowadays in Europe, there is a noticeable increase in the popularity of power two-wheelers (PTW). This is largely due to the increase in urban transport problems.


    As part of a broader bid to industrialize, there is growing interest in a number of larger African countries in building some sort of automotive industry. But the difficulties of establishing reasonably competitive production ar-e enormous. 


    The most aspiring and technological introduction Powered Two-Wheeler’ (PTW) covers a wide range of vehicles from mopeds, scooters and other small capacity motorcycles, ideal for urban journeys, to large capacity custom, sports and touring models, as well as tricycles.


    The automotive industry is scale intensive even the larger economies such as Nigeria and South Africa lack domestic markets, which are  of sufficient size to achieve economies of scale.


    For certain journeys, PTWs can be an alternative to individual car-based private mobility or a complement to public transport, successfully integrating the urban transport toolbox available to citizens, businesses and authorities. This is confirmed by the growing participation of PTWs to the urban modal split in many European cities.


    Bajaj Auto and TVS Motor, both of India, are rapidly gaining market share in Africa’s two-wheeler sector. The number of Chinese enterprises operating in Africa has decreased as a result of the rise of Indian brands.


    Based on its product strengths, local assembly operations quality assurance, network of distribution partners, dealers, and service centres, Bajaj has been able to compete and win in Africa.


    TVS Motor Company, on the other hand, has steadily increased its footprint in Africa over the last few years. The number of two-wheelers has increased. Guinea, Kenya, and Nigeria, for example, are developing at a considerably quicker rate.


    According to TVS Motor Company, Africa is a booming market because to its big population, rising prosperity, and desire to own a vehicle.

    Nowadays in Africa, there is a noticeable increase in the popularity of power two-wheelers (PTW). This is largely due to the increase in urban transport problems. In analyzing the development of PTWs, it is important to note the fundamental differences in their use on the entire continent of two-wheeler operations.


    The internal combustion engine  (ICE)  remains  the  dominant  vehicle  technology  globally  but  electric  vehicles  (EVs)  and  especially  two‐ wheelers  are  making  rapid  headway. In Africa, current levels of motorization are still  exceptionally  low and electric vehicles are almost  non‐existent. Nevertheless,  the  conventional  motorcycle  market  is  growing  rapidly and  with  rapid  economic  and  population growth,  this  market  expansion  is  set  to  continue.

    Electric vehicles offer  the  benefits of  reduced  urban air pollution and reduced CO2  emissions, although the latter depends on how electricity  is being generated. Africa’s growing cities are  experiencing severe and increasing levels of air  pollution. Premature deaths in Africa resulting  from air pollution (ambient particulate matter),  while lower than in China, are rising rapidly.


    While it is clear that demand is currently extremely limited, electric two‐wheelers potentially offer the opportunity of low-cost mobility in Africa. The major constraint is, of course, the cost relative to alternatives. This integrates the market with a new technological advancement of Electric vehicle operations and mobility for better environmental compliance.


    The cargo bicycles may play a significant role for last mile deliveries of the Africa two-wheeler market. They require less space than vans and can be parked on the sidewalk. These electrically assisted bicycles, tricycles or quadricycles do not emit any local emissions and are capable of transporting 50-250 kg of cargo. But, in topologically moved areas the capacity of conventional battery concepts constrains the transport range: delivery tours by bike can have a daily mileage up to 50-80 km.



    For the Nigerian Market, Honda launches Ace110 motorcycle. It has a 110cc engine which has bluster vibration, covers long distances, includes big and comfortable seats. It indeed fits in the slogan given by its manufactures “For Everyone On Every Road”.



    The Africa Two-Wheeler market has been under constant technology adoption and automated control system implementation within the two-wheeler market of Europe. The major stakeholders are involved in implementing new strategies of technology to have a better and safer ride for the customers.


    Bajaj Auto has been one of the most preferred automotive manufacturers of Africa Two-Wheeler market with its latest introduction of the Dominar 400.  It consists of and is integrated with a 374 cc Engine Capacity with Single cylinder requirements installed to attain the maximum power of 35 bhp at 8000 rpm.


    The other product used in Africa Market is the Bajaj Boxer stands for strength, endurance, ruggedness, and durability. Boxer is extensively used as a moto-taxi by riders popularly known as Okadas or Boda Bodas in many African countries. Not just that, in places like Egypt & Iran, Bajaj Boxer is considered as a dependable motorcycle.


    It is integrated with Spring-in-Spring (the world’s first technology) patented by Bajaj Auto.  An engineering breakthrough that utilizes 2 co-axial springs mounted on a shock absorber at the rear in a twin shock setting that helps in delivering a comfortable ride on any terrain, for any distance.


    Honda Motors has recently introduced sporting bikes within the Africa market which includes the Honda VT 300 CV and Honda VT 750 Shadow. The 2019 Model CRF250R makes it easy with a 3-mode HRC Launch Control that helps any rider – from beginner to expert – hit the mark straight out of the gate every time. A new front brake calliper enhances performance, while Renthal Fatbars come as standard. The DID rims also wear a new black finish. The Smooth, aerodynamic lines of the plastics allow easy movement, while the black-finished DID rims and scratch-resistant film insert graphics deliver sharp visuals and a durable finish.
