About Continuously Variable Transmission Market for Two-Wheelers

CVT in two-wheelers is generally used in the scooter segment. Almost all scooters are now equipped with CVT whereas most of the motorbikes are equipped with manual transmission technology. Unlike manual transmission, CVT does not have gear shift but instead has infinite gear ratios, whose transition takes place almost seamlessly without any manual intervention. CVT technology uses pulleys connected through a belt, which helps in gear changing. It chooses the optimal gear ratio along with its variable range between the lowest gear ratio and the highest gear ratio and thus provides transmission to the engine unlike the manual transmissions, which provide transmission through the manual shifting of gears.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global continuously variable transmission market for two-wheelers to grow at a CAGR of 10.99% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Continuously Variable Transmission Market for Two-Wheelers 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global continuously variable transmission market for two-wheelers: Honda, Yamaha, TVS, and Piaggio.

Other prominent vendors in the market are: Suzuki and Hero.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of latest trends in the market is increased popularity of moto scooters. The popularity of moto scooters is increasing rapidly. Moto scooters are essentially a crossover between scooter and motorcycles. Honda has recently launched a moto scooter in India called Navi, which has the attributes of both scooters as well as motorcycles. This scooter was launched based on the line of Honda Activa and has the same dimension as Activa. The scooter has been made comparatively lighter than its peers. It has an improved power-to-weight ratio providing more fuel economy benefits and improved balancing. It has been designed in such a way that it looks contemporary and can have an appeal for the youth customer base.”

According to the report, one of the primary drivers in the market is growing traffic congestion on roads. All major economies are facing the challenge of increased traffic congestion on roads, and it has become an inescapable condition in the urban and metropolitan areas across the world. However, the problem is more acute in APAC especially in countries such as India, China, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia. The reason for increased traffic congestion is rapid urbanization, increase in the number of vehicles causing increased traffic density, and the rise in the household income of the middle class leading to increase in the number of lone travelers.

Further, the report states that one major challenge in the market is rubber band effect in CVT. A CVT-equipped vehicle uses a pulley instead of gears. One of the pulleys is connected to a driving belt, one to the engine output, and the other pulley is connected to the drive shaft. Each of the pulleys has two pieces of discs with a sloped surface. The discs are positioned in such a way that it is far away from each other and the belt rotates with the smaller diameter in the orbit. But when the discs are positioned toward each other the belt rotates with the larger diameter in the orbit. The transmission can be varied by easing the discs.
