Sabir Sheikh, the Chairperson of the All Pakistan Motorcycle Assemblers, told a mainstream media outlet that the demand for motorcycles has risen dramatically since the lockdown was lifted last year, and that suppliers have been struggling to keep up with the demand for motorcycles and spare parts since then.
He explained that because suppliers are unable to meet demand, dealers are charging customers “their own money.” Own money refers to the illegal selling price at which a dealer charges a customer a premium over the vehicle’s original Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).
It is worth mentioning that, in recent years up to 80% of bike manufacturing has been localised, so there is no reason for prices to climb so frequently and by such enormous margins. Regrettably, the government has failed to intervene in this matter, allowing manufacturers to profit from rising demand.
