The Tasmanian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (TACC) has served the automotive industry in Tasmania since 1928.

There had always been a long standing and mutually supportive relationship between TACC and the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (VACC).

TACC successfully lobbied state government on behalf of members for many years, but times were changing and in 1999 TACC and VACC were amalgamated. This merger offered members a more diverse range of services, while still maintaining a Tasmanian perspective on local issues.

Today we are dedicated to the promotion, representation and preservation of member businesses to local, state and federal governments, as well as the media, consumers and the community.

Motorcycle sales dip slightly in 2023

10 JANUARY 2024

According to the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), the Australian motorcycle and off-highway vehicle (OHV) market achieved 95,980 sales for the 2023 calendar year, a dip of 3.1 per cent on the same time the year prior.

Off-road motorcycles sold 40,138 units, a drop of 3.7 per cent, while road motorcycles recorded a slip of three per cent, with 35,122 sales over the same period.

The OHV segment recorded 14,585 sales, a decline of 7.8 per cent.

Scooter sales, however, experienced an uptick, recording a 15.4 rise on sales from the previous year (6,135 units sold).

FCAI CEO Tony Weber said: "Recreational products, including motorcycles, often bear the brunt of financial constraints during challenging periods."

So, with speculation interest rates will fall later this year, will motorcycle sales hit the 100,000 mark in 2024? Only time will tell.
