MAG polls motorcyclists regarding the petrol engine

MAG polls motorcyclists regarding the petrol engine

The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) has launched a poll of UK
motorcyclists to gauge opinions on the use of petrol-powered motorcycles.

The UK Government has clearly stated its intent to move away from
traditional fossil-fuelled vehicles to an electric fleet. The Government
has also stated that it will ban sales of new petrol- and diesel-powered
cars and small vans by 2030 and, although it hasn’t explicitly included
motorcycles, these are likely to be included at a later stage.

The existing vehicle fleet will neither disappear, nor be replaced,
overnight; however, change is coming.  Within the car industry this is
happening at pace. Change and progress is inevitable, but should MAG be
fighting to preserve the internal combustion engine (ICE) for
motorcycles and scooters?

MAG’s Chair, Selina Lavender, says: “It is important to acknowledge that
change is coming and as an organisation we are not standing in the way
of progress. If you want to ride an electric motorcycle or scooter, or
indeed have already made the change, then there is a place in MAG for
you.  However, at this time the options don’t make sense to a great many
riders.  They are fearful of being forced off the bikes they cherish and
see them potentially being demoted from a transport choice to a museum
exhibit.”

Further to the success of our previous members poll we extend this poll
to all riders in an effort to gauge how important riders feel the move
away from traditional petrol-powered engines is to them.

MAG remains the representative voice of motorcyclists and will do all it
can to represent the views of riders.  We are committed to ensuring that
all views are heard, particularly on such an important and complex subject.

Please complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/S5PCWSY

The poll closes at 5pm on Tuesday 20th April 2021.
