The Best Motorbike Trackers - which should you choose?

Bikers, did you know more than 40,000 motorbikes are stolen every year in the UK, almost half of which are never seen again? 

More and more thieves are going to extraordinary lengths to get their hands on your most prized possession, meaning without the proper precautions, no bike is completely safe! 

For every 40,000 motorbikes stolen it is estimated just 16,000 are safely returned, with the others typically being exported across Europe, sold on the black market or scrapped for parts. Scary eh? But don’t panic! There are ways to avoid being on the bad side of these statistics. 

So what can you do to prevent your motorbike falling into the hands of a motorbike thief? Well you could invest in a top of the range chain lock to deter criminals, but this won’t stop the most determined! Instead spend your money on a top of the range, sophisticated motorbike tracker.

If, like many, you know absolutely nothing about motorbike trackers then don’t worry, that’s exactly what this blog is here for.  

What should I look for in a motorbike tracker?

What should I look for in a motorbike tracker?

Using a tracking system is one of the best ways for you to protect your motorbike. They act as both a deterrent to thieves and an excellent tool to recover your bike should it be stolen.

There’s a lot of trackers on the market. Some important things to look out for when searching for a motorbike tracker include:

  • Budget - It’s likely that your budget will affect which tracker you buy. Remember to factor in the initial hardware cost as well as any subscription fees for monitoring your motorbike.

  • Thatcham approval - Any tracker that carries the Thatcham Quality Assurance is approved by insurance providers and will be an effective security device for your car.

  • Power source - Does the tracker draw power from your motorbike's battery? Or does it have a battery that will need replacing? How often?
