The motorcycle market in Romania grew by almost 80% due to intense traffic and hot summer Romanians were experiencing last year, Honda brand manager Mircea Eremia has told He considers that the market will continue to grow over the next seven years and annual country sales might actually reach 100,000 units sold, eight times more than current sales.

Eremia argues that 50 cmc scooters are now driving the sales and help clients get a taste of the benefits offered by driving motorcycles. The Honda representative says that there are more and more people who visit the company showroom and are very well informed of their options.

However, he argues that there are still those who drive a way too powerful motorcycle right after they get a license, which is against regulations. Moreover, he adds that motorcycle drivers are better perceived in Romania than a few years ago and thus are more respected in the traffic.
