Yamaha Motor Taiwan celebrates the delivery of 10 million two-wheelers

30. June 2022

Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Yamaha Motor announced that its local offshoot in Taiwan, Yamaha Motor Taiwan (YMT), has already produced 10 million two-wheelers since its establishment in 1987. YMT was established in 1987 as a local subsidiary of Yamaha Motor for two-wheeler production in the city of Taoyuan. Most of the scooters produced there are for the Taiwanese and Japanese markets. Annual production capacity has averaged 330,000 units in recent years, of which 250,000 were destined for Taiwan and 80,000 for export, including to Japan. In Taiwan, out of a population of 24 million, more than 13 million two-wheelers are registered. Annual sales of two-wheelers are around 850,000 units, according to Yamaha. Yamaha said that in Taiwan, scooters are used as a universal means of transportation in everyday life. Scooters and other vehicles usually require VSCC certification to be registered in Taiwan.



In order to import products into Taiwan, it must be ensured that they meet local safety and quality standards. This is ensured by specific, product-dependent certifications, which certify that the products comply with the relevant regulations in Taiwan. The Vehicle Safety and Certification Center (VSCC) is responsible for vehicles and products of the automotive industry in Taiwan. The authority was established in 2009 by the Ministry of Transport and Communications in the city of Lugang. In scope, the certifications for Taiwan are similar to the Chinese CCC and CEL certifications.
