The global market for Motorcycles, Scooters and Mopeds estimated at 48.7 Million Units in the year 2022, is projected to reach a revised size of 61.6 Million Units by 2026.
Over the past decade or so there has been a general resurgence in popularity of Motorcycle Tracking Solution as a hobby or mode of transportation. They are increasingly used as low-cost means of transportation.
However, industry insiders said: motorcycle theft is still on the rise. According to MCN, “Burglary cases increased by more than 36% in 2022 and are expected to grow by 11.1% in 2023.
Here are the annual figures for powered two-wheeled thefts, ranging from 2019-2022 (donated from the Police National Computer System):
- 2019: 24,353 motorcycles stolen
- 2020: 17,747 motorcycles stolen (-27.1%)
- 2021: 18,485 motorcycles stolen (+4.2%)
- 2022: 25,212 motorcycles stolen (+36.4%)
While the above positive percentages look a bit concerned, governing bodies are already predicting the motorcycle market will continue to suffer from continued petty filching with a projected rise of 11.1% to 28,000 thefts – and this is in the EU.
That said, most motorcycles are easy targets for thieves. In many cases, timely and correct data-driven action against a theft attempt can save valuable assets and prevent financial loss. If so, car owners and corporate fleet managers need to know where the vehicle is at a given moment, when it is being used or not, etc. Yes, GPS tracking devices can be very useful here, but there are a few things to consider.
We all know that on a passenger car or light commercial vehicle there are many places to mount a tracker, but on a motorcycle these places and spaces are very limited, so having a compact tracker is especially important.
Furthermore, motorcycles of all kinds are often affected by climatic factors and environmental conditions. Therefore, aspects such as rain, dew, moisture, dirt, clay, sand, dust, vibration, hot steam, etc. should also be taken into account.
That being said, these challenges need to be addressed, and Jimi is ready to offer practical solutions.

How it works
