Vmoto continued to expand its international distribution network, establishing 13 additional distributorships to take its total number to 53 distributors.

The business said it had firm international orders of 9,636 units heading into 2H21, which it believes will provide “a solid runway for sales growth”.

Commenting on the remainder of 2021, VMT said it was confident it would further expand its distribution network and increase sales.

“Vmoto delivered very strong 1H21 financial results as the Company continues to execute on its strategy of selling high performance and value electric two-wheel vehicles into international markets,” the company said.

“The company continues to build both its B2B and B2C distribution networks worldwide and when combined with the solid international orders, provides a strong outlook for the remainder of FY21.”
