Motorcycle Accident Statistics & Facts: Most Common Causes

This infographic calls out the top 3 risk factors that are likely to increase your chances of a motorcycle crash & 3 tips to help reduce your risk. The data points stem from a study that was done for the Motorcycle Safety Foundation by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. 100 riders from age 21 to 79 in California, Arizona, Florida and Virginia were equipped with five video cameras and data-logging equipment on their motorcycles, these riders were recorded for a total of 366,667 miles.

Researchers at the University of Southern California, led by Harry Hurt, went to motorcycle crash scenes to determine the causes. Unfortunately, that report came out in 1981, when cell phones were non-existent and a powerful motorcycle made 90 horsepower.
