The city is second only to Cambridge as the worst location for bike theft with 203 motorbikes stolen between June 2022 and May 2023, 82 per 100,000 population.
Using a Freedom of Information request to the DVLA, vehicle finance specialists at Anglo Scottish Finance found which areas are home to the most stolen bikes.
In that year, a total of 18,361 motorcycles were registered as stolen to the DVLA by police.
The entire top 10 list of the most-stolen bike models in the UK come from two manufacturers – Yamaha and Honda.
Dan Reavley, Head of Vehicle Finance at Anglo Scottish Finance, said: “Would-be thieves often see motorcycles as an easier theft than a car, leaving bike owners more susceptible to theft. Wherever you’re based, however, it’s worth investing in a little extra security for your motorbike. Peace of mind for your pride and joy is worth the money you’ll spend on security.”
