Scratched the surface of the onroad market
The European market for motorcycle gear, accessories and parts is fragmented with many small traditional motorcycle retailers. In total it is estimated to be a market worth over 90 billion SEK. Today the majority of sales takes place in physical stores, but there is an ongoing transition to online stores driven by availability, convenience and lower prices.
– We are still in the early days of this journey with Pierce. Our value proposition is stronger than ever, and we have many upcoming activities aiming at offering our customers an even better shopping experience in 2020, says Henrik Zadig, CEO of Pierce AB.
