You’ve got to hand it to the industry for its drive to tackle bike theft. The MCIA reported recently that the simple tagging of new motorcycles by 11 of the main manufacturers had brought about a marked reduction in the number of stolen machines. “Tagged bikes four times less likely to be stolen”, the headline read in the May issue of BDN.
The story was based on the fact that since the January 2013 launch of the UK’s first national anti-theft initiative, the Master Security Scheme, only 403 of the 52,687 tagged motorcycles and scooters had been stolen.
“We are highly encouraged by the results we have seen so far,” said Steve Kenward, CEO of scheme member the MCIA.
Tagging clearly works!!!
