According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) a total of 46,667 motorcycles were stolen in 2011. The results range from a few hundred from lesser known manufacturers to multiple thousands from name brand OEMs.
The NICB says it identified 550 makes of motorcycles of which the top 15 account for 89% of motorcycle thefts. Curiously, many well-known manufacturers such as Ducati, Aprilia and Victory, among others, are glaringly absent from this report. With that in mind, we took the top 10 of those listed in the report and present them to you here.
