    News that matters to us, the Indians are, here in country, most stolen bike was 100cc segment, and yes, as Hero dominated, so it was Hero. Demand was for the engine which used to be used for pump set in rural segment.

    But in recent years, as the economy grew, so did the presence of real pump sets :P, thus now days the most stolen bike is the pulsar segment :P
