But in the global perspective, these two are just a drop in the bucket compared to motorcycle production in other parts of the world. New Atlas reports that the new largest motorcycle-producing country in the world isn't the U.S., Japan, or even China, but an unexpected source: India. According to New Atlas, around 500,000 motorcycles are sold in America each year...while India sold 17.59 million motorcycles in the 2016-2017 financial year. Of course, the Indian motorcycle market is very different than America's. The vast majority of India's domestic market motorcycles have tiny engines, less than 125 cubic centimeters in displacement. Of the 10 most popular motorcycles in India, only one has an engine larger than that: the Royal Enfield 350 Classic.Though Royal Enfield was originally the name of the rifle that Britain used to keep the peace in their former colony, India ..
