Having basic knowledge of the chassis owner of your vehicle is extremely important as a bike owner. You should know the different ways in which you can check the chassis number of your bike, should you ever need to.

A chassis number is an identification number which helps differentiate your vehicle from others and contains important information about your bike. It carries information such as the manufacturer of your vehicle and other details about it, which help identify it to the authorities as well as for things such as spare parts. It is important to know where you can check your vehicle’s chassis number. 

Different Ways To Check Your Bike’s Chassis Number

Importance of Bike’s Chassis Number 

The chassis number of your bike is the last six digits of the VIN (vehicle identification number) of the bike and is a unique identification number which will identify your bike among others, marking it as unique. It is useful in a variety of scenarios, such as identifying your bike in case it is stolen. It may also be used to identify the bike when purchasing any spare parts to make sure they are compatible with your bike. The VIN and chassis numbers are used by the authorities to ensure your bike is duly registered. 

Different Ways To Check Your Bike’s Chassis Number

The following are some places where you will find your bike’s chassis number, should you ever need to check it for any reason: 

  • Vehicle Documents

Your chassis number will be noted in the documents related to the bike and its registration, such as the bike’s RC or registration certificate, insurance documents, the vehicle’s title, any reports of body repair, etc. 

  • Steering Neck or Motor

On your bike itself, most commonly the chassis number will be visible to you on the bike’s steering neck. Alternatively, some bikes will also have the chassis number noted on the motor of the bike. These are two spots on your vehicle itself where you will be able to locate the bike’s chassis number. 


The chassis number of your bike, therefore, is an important identifying mechanism with which you can uniquely identify your bike from others. It would be available on the bike itself, on the steering neck, or motor, and alternatively can be found in the many vehicle documents that you would possess, such as the insurance documents or registration certificate (RC).
