Theft of motorcycles is very common in the US. One probable reason for this is that it is very easy to steal and get away with a bike as compared to other transport media such as cars and trucks. The cost of the new models is over 20,000 dollars, which has made them more popular and thieves have taken the notice too. Motorcycles are powerful and are more thrilling than cars and trucks, which could be another reason that gets thieves interested in them.
Motorcycle theft is made worse by the fact that, once stolen they are hard to recover. Thieves will easily alter them, reuse and brand them into totally different and new looking bikes. The National Insurance Crime Bureau has reports showing that of all stolen motorcycles, only 25% to 30% ever see recovery as compared to 60% to 65% of recovered stolen cars and trucks.
