2016 National Motorcycle Thefts Up 2%. California Leading For Stolen Motorcycles.


The Annual Theft Report from the National Insurance Crime Bureau )NICB) shows the number of bike stolen rose 2% nationally in 2016. A total of 46,467 motorcycles were reported stolen, up from 45,555 in 2015.The largest number per State disappeared in California, where 7,506 motorcycles were reported stolen compared with 4,482 stolen in Florida and 3,692 in Texas. New York, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles are the most-plagues cities. , while Los Angeles County is the top county.
Logically, the NICB report confirms that the bulk of motorcycle thefts occur during the summer months, when more bikes are on the street and when more people enjoy riding. August is the top month, when almost twice as many motorcycles were reported stolen than in December or January. Some bikes are more popular targets than others or are simply easier to steal. A disproportionate number are Japanese models.
