BMW R1200C 3. Honda Rebel Series 4. Honda Shadow Series 5. Yamaha V-Star Motorcycle Crashes: Most Likely to be Crashed 1. Suzuki GSX-R Series 2. Kawasaki Ninja Series 3. Suzuki TLR 4. Yamaha YZF Series 5. Honda CBR Series Least Likely to be Crashed 1. Yamaha Virago Series 2. Honda Rebel Series 3. Suzuki Savage 4. Harley-Davidson FXR 5. BMW R1200C So what does this mean for bikers?
