Description

Source of data: bikez.com, a fan-made website, there are many data fields, but actual data is available for just a small amount of bike models, and completion is NOT guaranteed for any specific market. Fan-made website means less restrictive in terms of copyright. You are free to use this data on your own website. Already seen a website (motociclisti.ro) using same data from bikez.com, everything translated into Romanian.

Each calendar year a bike is manufactured is on a separate row in database. I know that some customers prefer start year – end year, but customizing this is too difficult. If you are from United States you may be familiarized with the fact that vehicles launched in 2019 are wear “Model Year 2020” and several people asked me when I am going to add 2020 models. Bikez database use calendar year, so you won’t see 2020 models until we actually enter in 2020 year.

Bikez.com website originally covered 1970-present, but was expanded to 1930-present during summer 2016 and to 1894-present during autumn.

My experience is limited to cars so I cannot tell how complete is for bikes sold in any specific country in the world, or what is the accuracy of fan-made websites, but with 30000+ bike models I assume that it is the most comprehensive website with bikes produced worldwide, even if in the early years there are much lower number of bikes per year, compared with 2000s and 2010s.

The motorcycle database was originally made in May 2016 with 43 columns, by someone who needed both cars and bikes and we agreed to give him a discount for my manually-made biggest car database in exchange of a script that extract data from bikez.com and put in a CSV file, with permission to sell it on my website.

However, few months later I made my own script which surprisingly works faster than his one. Browsing other bikes I found additional data fields which I included in the August 2016 update, having 62 columns, after this I re-started looking at bike models with most fields filled up and found that they have even more fields not yet included, so I released final version in September 2016 with 71 columns. For example, August 2016 release include 0-100 kmph available for 1% of bikes, and after this I found that other bikes contain also 1/4 mile and 60-140 kmph in highest gear. There is possible that Bikez.com to have even more data fields but they are available for so small amount of bikes that does not add any value to my bike database.

            Free updates
            Download link is valid for 1 year, and each time I update databases I send email notifications to re-download. After first year, you can buy another year of updates at 50% discount. Read more.

    Anyway it’s useful.

  2. How often is it updated? Do we have to download the database each time it is updated? Do we pay each time?

    Thanks!

    Hello,
    I’m interested in downloading the motorcycle database to support Washington State’s motorcycle safety program jointly ran by Washington State Traffic Safety Commission and Washington State Department of Licensing. Once we purchase the database, would it permissible to use it to support two State agencies working collaboratively?

    Thanks,
    Zeyno

    1. We talked via live chat shortly after you left comment and I told you that you can use. I reply here just to make other people seeing that I reply comments.

    Hi,
    Do you also have brand-wise two wheeler (motorcycle, scooter & moped) production related data for major countries across the world as well as production capacity of major two wheeler manufacturers across the world .

    Regards

    1. I made https://www.teoalida.com/cardatabase/car-sales-figures/ sourcing data from http://carsalesbase.com/
      and https://www.teoalida.com/cardatabase/automobile-production/ sourcing data from http://www.oica.net/category/production-statistics/2018-statistics/
      Show me a website similar with above ones that provide production numbers and we will see what I can do in Excel
