Two-wheel vehicles came into their own in a year when travelling on public transport was often discouraged and delivery services boomed.

Demand for aftermarket parts was also healthy within the sector, reflecting both a preference for affordable personal transport as well as the popularity of socially-distanced pastimes such as bike restoration projects. But there’s been a fly in the ointment.
