Delticom AG: Biker Summer 2016: Most Bikers Travel Several Thousand Kilometres Every Year

  • asked over 5,000 bikers from ten countries about
    their preferences.
  • The majority of British bikers travel up to 5,500 kilometres
    throughout the year.

HANOVER, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the fourth time,,
the online biker shop from Delticom, Europe’s largest online tyre
retailer, asked bike fans from ten European countries about their
preferred biking summer. Over 5,000 bike fans from throughout Europe
provided details of their biking preferences. This means that more than
four times as many riders took part in the survey as last year.
Participants were eligible to win prizes worth over 2,000 euros –
including high-quality accessories for their next trip, and vouchers for
a new set of tyres.

The results of the survey paint a picture of the typical European biker.
All participants answered three questions which tracked the plans of
bike lovers: about their planned tour lengths in kilometres, as well as
in numbers of days, and their preferred brand of tyres.

British bikers

Just over a third (34%) of British bikers were planning tours with a
total length between 3,000 and 5,500 kilometres. This showed a
preference for trips which can be completed over a long weekend: for the
majority of respondents (23%), their longest trip would last between two
and five days. When it comes to tyre brands, the Brits bet on European
products and premium brands: the most popular manufacturers are
Michelin, Bridgestone, and Metzeler.

“We are delighted to have convinced so many bikers across Europe to
complete our survey. Finding out about their individual preferences was
fun and exciting. The results show the extent to which the sport of
motorbiking fascinates people – from hobby bikers who prefer short
weekend breaks, to real enthusiasts, who will happily be on the road for
more than two weeks, and who will cover more than 12,000 kilometres
during their trip. This wide variety of driving profiles must, of
course, be reflected in the choice of tyres on offer”, says Oliver
Pflaum of
“Bikers often know exactly which set-up suits them and their machine.
That’s why we offer a comprehensive range.”
