Motorcycle Sidecars Market: Introduction
A motorcycle sidecar is a single-wheeled device that is attached to the side of a motorcycle, moped/scooter, or electric or normal bicycle. The attachment of a motorcycle sidecar to a two-wheeler converts it into a three-wheeled vehicle. A two-wheeler with an attached motorcycle is also known as a combination, rig, or hack. The body of the motorcycle usually provides a seat for a single passenger, and has a small trunk-like compartment on the rear side of the body. In some cases, the motorcycle sidecar is modified for the transportation of cargo or tools & equipment, just like the platform of transport vehicles such as trucks. Generally, motorcycle sidecars consist of the body and the frame. The frame is either fixed to the motorcycle or is attached in such a way that the motorcycle can lean in the similar way as that of a motorcycle without a sidecar. Mostly, the motorcycle sidecar is attached to the right hand side of the vehicle for right side moving traffic. Motorcycle sidecars have gained the attention of motorcycle enthusiasts and bike lovers. Many motorcycle enthusiasts have modified their bikes with the attachment of a motorcycle sidecar for trekking and off-road biking.
