About Minsk Motorbikes

The plant started on 6 November 1945. It is situated in the capital of Belarus – Minsk: Motovelo Corporation, 8 Partizanski Ave., Minsk, Belarus 220765; Tel: 375 17 221-6905; Fax: 375 17 221-6806

This plant manufactures on parallel assembly lines motorcycles and bicycles. 70% of bicycles are exported to Russia, while 90% of motorcycles are exported to countries outside of the former USSR – Iran, Vietnam, Turkey, Mexico, UK, France, USA, and Germany.

Since privatization, the MotoVelo Corporation has been in decline trailing near bankruptcy. On 25 November 2005, some 600 employees of MotoVelo rallied and blocked one of major Minsk streets in protest of low salaries ($100/month) and poor work conditions. On 16 December 2005 majority stock (90% of stock options) were transferred to the Belarussian state to save the plant. The Belarussian socialist economy means that the plant will soon have an influx of state money and improve.

Some believe that this whole situation was created by a Motovelo director deliberately since immediately after the collapse of Motovelo he was promoted to a high government position. Looks like the Lukashenka regime was after the hard currency flow generated by this 90% export of motorcycles abroad. However – this is good news for consumers – the plant will survive.
