04-01-2013

Planned changes to driving licence rules have prompted higher sales of scooters, the news agency ČTK reported on Friday. As of mid January, driving licences for cars will allow drivers to ride scooters with engines of up to 125 ccm; as a result, sales of motorcycles in this category have risen by some 30 percent in the past several months. The most popular model on the Czech market is the Honda PCX 125. However, overall sales of motorcycles decreased last year by around 8 percent.
