Decrease in Replacement Cycle for Two Wheelers: The replacement cycle or average ownership period for two wheelers in India has come down from 7-8 years to 3-5 years over the past decade driven by rising aspirations of Indian consumers, frequent two wheeler launches and easy availability of financing for New Two Wheelers. Need for better exchange rates and saving on further depreciation is also bringing down the replacement cycle for new two wheelers.

COVID-19 Impact on Used Two Wheeler Market: Sudden spike in demand post lockdown can be attributed to consumers shifting from market segments of new bikes/shared mobility to used vehicles; majorly observed in Tier 1 & Tier 2 cities. While a surge in demand was seen during Unlock 1, increase in supply was not seen Owing to cash crunch, people retained their vehicles thereby avoiding shifting to new vehicle purchase for a while. Supply of used two wheelers mainly originated from individuals looking for immediate cash or from food delivery companies selling out vehicles & laying off their delivery agents in order to meet cash flow needs. As lockdown eases further, Sale of Used Two Wheelers expected to Increase mainly from non metro cities as consumers prefer to have their own vehicle as compared to travelling in Public Transport System.

Growth in Tier II & Tier III Cities: The Indian government was observed to particularly spend towards rural programs and huge road-construction projects that have led to increase in two wheeler volumes in smaller towns and cities of India. Besides rising incomes and growing infrastructure in rural areas, one of the primary growth drivers for the spurt in sales has been rise in total number of women commuters.

Consumer Shift Towards Online Sales Channels: People residing in Metro cities such as Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and others along with rising internet penetration were observed to shift towards online classifieds and websites which act as a one stop shop for customers, therefore displaying product features along with pricing and other factors and promoting C2C transactions. On the other hand, people residing non-metro cities prefer to buy through offline channels.
