“A Shared Road to Safety - A Global Approach for Safer Motorcycling”
The worldwide increased use of Powered Two Wheelers (PTW) in both developing and developed countries is strongly related to urbanisation and the associated congestion in cities as well as to the shift in economic balance which resulted in an increased need for mobility in developing nations.
More and more choose for PTWs as a result of the benefits they provide. At the same time there is a strong global challenge to ensure sustainability from road safety perspective.
The event organized by IMMA will help better understand the variation in the use of PTWs globally, key trends and their impacts, and highlight the importance of inclusive policy (positive consideration of PTWs in transport plans) with an integrated perspective.
The term “Powered Two-Wheeler” (PTW) covers a wide diversity of vehicle. The products are divided into different segments such as moped, scooter, street, classic, super-sport, touring, custom, supermoto and off-road motorcycles.
PTWs are one of the most affordable forms of motorized transport in many parts of the world. In various regions, PTWs are also the most common type of motor vehicle.
In international regulatory environment, PTWs fit under the term light vehicles of category L.
IMMA represents mopeds, motorcycles and three-wheelers. Therefore, IMMA refers to PTWs as Powered Two and Three wheeled Vehicles.
