What is a VIN?

Learn more about Vehicle Identification Numbers

A Vehicle Identification Number, commonly abbreviated as VIN, is a unique 17 digit serial number containing both letters and numbers (for example, JS1GR7MA0D2100006) which is used to identify vehicles such as cars, motorcycle and trucks. Every vehicle sold must have a unique, unchanging VIN, making it traceable and identifiable. Thanks to these properties, it is commonly used to run vehicle history checks which detail past accidents, insurance claims, motorcycle specifications and more valuable information.





How do I find a motorcycle’s VIN?

Typically, the VIN is found on either the registration documents or the insurance policy. On the motorcycle itself, it is commonly found on the steering neck. This is located just behind the front forks, behind the headlight (if equipped). If you’re having trouble finding your motorcycle's VIN, check the manufacturer’s website for detailed instructions.
