The number of stolen motorcycles in France is said to be down very slightly
Like last year, ICA publishes its report on motorcycle and scooter thefts in France in 2015 at the end of a "survey of 3,163 owners of two-wheelers who have benefited from an ICA engraving". And like last year, it appears that a motorized two-wheeler is stolen every 9 minutes despite
Like last year, ICA publishes its report on motorcycle and scooter thefts in France in 2015 at the end of a "survey of 3,163 owners of two-wheelers who have benefited from an ICA engraving". And like last year, it appears that despite a slight decrease of -3.88% whereas according to this survey, the victims of a theft would have been more likely to file a complaint ("95%" Vs "90%" ).
"The theft of two-wheelers represents 13.5% of motor vehicle thefts (versus 14% in 2015 at the same period)", sums up the brand of anti-theft devices based on the figures collected by the (ONDRP ) between September 2014 and August 2015 ("57,699 flights" of two-wheelers Vs "59,835" a year earlier).
The "blast" of post-flight tracking has fallen ?
While the U remains the preferred lock for French bikers (according to ICA, "64%" use it and "32%" believe that it is the most effective device), we note the drop of "-5%" in respondents who cited "post-flight geolocation" as an effective device ("20%").
"We don’t have a factual explanation," ICA admits, stressing that "last year there may have been a spike in awareness of this type of product which was widely covered by the press in the car world too. It is likely that the blast has subsided (the novelty effect has subsided) or that people have turned away from this idea because the technology is perceived as too expensive. ".
Remember also that the Tmax, the most stolen two-wheeler in France according to the Mutuelle des Motards, is no longer equipped as standard with a post-flight geolocation system (read).
Two-wheelers parked on public roads remain the most exposed, but motorcycle thieves seem more and more likely to favor collective boxes and other private garages (+ 7%), leaving the public domain (-6%): to the question "where was your two-wheeler parked during the last flight?", 56% of ICA respondents answered "on the public highway" and 42% in a "collective box or private garage", against respectively .
