Indonesia is a country of two-wheelers with more than 130 million registered motorcycle owners.
- There are 35 electric motorcycle companies in Indonesia thus far.
- Indonesia currently has more than 130 million registered motorcycle owners.
The growing number of motorcycles in the country has prompted the Indonesian government to focus on the two-wheeled sector as the pivotal starting point for reducing the country’s emissions.
Indonesian Transport Minister Budy Karya Sumadi showered his support for the initiative during the Federal Group Discussion in Jakarta on Tuesday.
“There are around 133 million users of motorcycles in Indonesia. There are now 5 million requests a year. There were even 10 million requests before the pandemic.
“So, the market is huge, and this can be a game changer that can accelerate this transition,” he said.
Meanwhile, Presidential Special Staff Diaz Hendropriyono hopes that due to the large number of electric motorcycle companies in the country, Indonesia could reach the target of 2 million electric bikes by 2025.
“There are 35 electric motorcycle companies compared to three car companies.
“The price is also more competitive.
“This means that we can encourage the adoption of electric motorbikes to meet the President’s target of 2 million electric motorbikes by 2025,” he said.
