FAQ: How do I protect my motorcycle from theft?

1 of 1

Aftermarket security systems like Datatag, Smartwater and Alphadot can make the difference between losing your bike forever and getting it back.

Because villains know that they can’t sell the parts of a stolen bike on easily when it’s tagged with some sort of security marking they’ll pass it over and steal the unmarked bike in the next street instead.

Even if your bike is stolen because it’s going to be given a fresh superficial identity these systems mean that if the Police run a check on that bike later on, they’ll be able to tell in real time whether that bike is suspicious or not, which means you stand a good chance of your bike being recovered.
