Last chance to help make the case for our industry

Time is running out for anyone who wishes to take part in a study aimed to highlight the economic benefits to the UK of the motorcycle industry.

The MCI-commissioned study is being carried out by the ICF GHK, an independent research company. The aim of the study is to update an earlier report, undertaken by ICF GHK in 2010, which assessed and documented the economic significance and benefits of the UK motorcycle industry, i.e. its contribution to the total UK economy. 

“The study is very important and the findings will be used to raise awareness and understanding of the scale and importance of the UK motorcycle industry amongst policy-makers, the media and the general public,” says MCI chief executive Steve Kenward.

To inform the study, ICF GHK is repeating a survey of MCI members and other motorcycle businesses in the UK to collect information on the motorcycle industry from as many different businesses as possible.  This information is invaluable in helping ICF GHK to produce accurate estimates for the industry.  The more information and data that we can provide to the research team, the better and more useful the final report will be for our industry.

All responses to the survey will be treated in the strictest confidence and will only be used by ICF GHK to help estimate total figures for the industry and its subsectors.  ICF GHK will not disclose any information relating to individual responses to any other party.

The survey has been designed to be quick and simple to fill in, so please set aside a few minutes to complete it.  The survey can be accessed by clicking on the following link:

    We would be very grateful if you could submit your response to the survey by 30 June 2014.

    Please could you also forward to your dealer network and ask them to complete?

If you have any questions about the project or the survey, please contact Andy White at ICF GHK ([email protected]).

Best regards,

Steve Kenward, CEO, Motorcycle Industry Association”
