We have completed the design and development of a unique visual safety device for use by motorcyclists and other outdoor communities. We have developed a pitch deck and have some cash flow projection numbers. This will be marketed via the internet and direct sales thru various bike weeks and other events. In just the motorcycle market there are over 8.3 million registered motorcyclists in the United States alone. If we tap into only 5% of this market, that equates to 400,000 people. In addition, with the help of the internet, we will be able to eventually offer our product globally. The states of California, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York each have more than 380,000 registered motorcycles.
In addition, statistics from www.motorcyclesdata.com
indicates a high percentage of riders are safety minded potential buyers; 71% of riders in the United States have taken at least one safety training course. Additional statistics from motorcyclesdata.com include: miles ridden per year is over 1.5 billion; 42% of riders have a 4-year college degree or higher; every year more women are learning to ride; average number of riding months in the riding season is ten. These statistics and more, show more people are riding and more riders are interested in safety first. POTENTIAL SALES for the first 3 years: Without historical data, we are basing sales using two different methods based on current statistical data:
1.Eight million registered motorcycle riders in the country at ½% = 40,000 x $200.00 per system. Potential gross sales of just ½% of registered motorcyclists = $8,000,000.
2.Using current data from just 3 different Bike Weeks in the United States, gross sales is projected at 14,250 units = $2,850,000.
a)Daytona Bike Week – Every March is a 10-day event with 400,000 people in attendance. Conservative sales projections of 0.75% of attendees. 3,000 safety units sold at $200.00 per unit is $600,000 in gross sales. ( Daytona Beach Bike Week – Wikipedia
