8. New York (1460 – 2009 Yamaha)

Hey, it’s not a Suzuki at the top of New York’s list! You’ll notice there’s not a huge difference in the amount of thefts in spots 8 through 10. One important consideration is that these three states feature seasonally cold-weather climates, where year-round motorcycling is an option for only the hardiest of riders. Considering New York’s population (third in the country), theft occurrences are relatively low.

    I have an Idea about the Roketa thefts in Indiana. Normally I am only there in Feb for Dealer Expo, but this year I went over during warm weather for the MSF IRETS and MotoGP. There are SCORES of cheap scooters running around the inner city, urban environment. You do not need a tag, license, or insurance for a small scooter, they are basically considered a bicycle. Super cheap transportation! Perhaps Roketas are easy to hot wire and there is a strong dealer there pumping out a few hundred a year. It would not take many bikes to be on the top of the list and with no title/tag requirement it would be easy just to ride what you stole and not have to worry about being “hassled by the man”
