TODAY NICARAGUA – In 2015 55,000 motorbikes were sold and importing companies plan to increase sales by 11% during 2016 to reach 62,000 units.

An article on Elnuevodiario.com.ni reports that “… Sales of these vehicles in the Nicaraguan market reached a volume of 55,000 units in 2015, representing the best commercial result since 2008 and an increase of 23% compared to 2014, according to the Nicaraguan Association of dealers of Motor Vehicles (Andiva). Another piece of data that confirms the dynamism of the motocycle sector is the Survey Measuring Living Standards 2014, which revealed that motorcycle ownership increased from 2% in 2005 to 11% in 2014, achieving growth of 513% between those years.”

“… Statistics compiled by the Central Bank of Nicaragua (BCN) show that in 2015 the country paid US $46.568 million for imports of motorcycles, more than US $9 million in 2014, when the cost of importing this type of vehicle reached US $37,313.6 million. ”
