The tables in this document summarize the U.S. motorcycle population between 2002 and 2018, based on Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) analyses of data provided by IHS Markit. Registration counts as of January 1 of each year were provided by year, state, and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) pattern (first 10 digits). The Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) decoded VIN patterns to determine make, series, and model year, and information maintained by HLDI on motorcycle type and antilock braking system (ABS) availability were appended to each record by make/series/model year. Only on-road classes of motorcycles were included. Since the VIN information is constantly improving, the counts in this document may differ slightly from the previous version.
