42.6 years old in Wallonia, “more and more motorists who have passed their forties are buying a motorcycle”

Let’s start with the good news. “The number of motorcycle accidents has fallen by 15% over the past ten years,” points out Benoît Godart of the Vias Institute. Last year, 65 bikers were killed, compared to 106 a decade earlier. The result is all the more noteworthy since the number of motorcycle registrations has increased by 21% in the space of ten years (533,107 motorcycles listed in 2022).

However, motorcycling remains a risky means of transport. Of all road users, motorcyclists are most often involved in fatal accidents with an average of 26 killed per 1,000 claims, compared to 20 pedestrians, 8 cyclists and 8 motorists. “The absence of a passenger compartment combined with the speed obviously accentuates the seriousness of the accident”, underlines the road safety specialist.
