Success for SBD member company BikeTrac as they hit significant milestone
Renowned motorcycle tracking experts & Secured by Design member company, BikeTrac, are celebrating a significant milestone off the back of a busy summer of recoveries, having now recovered more than 1000 customer machines since launch.
Introduced to the motorcycle market in 2009, BikeTrac has gone on to become one of the most highly regarded automotive tracking products, thanks to the team’s dedicated approach to motorcycle security with its proven multi-tier technology.
Benefitting from GPS, GPRS, GSM and RF, BikeTrac was the first to offer such technology in a dedicated motorcycle device, allowing the team to not only track down stolen motorcycles and scooters, but be able to assist in proactive recoveries, where only Radio Frequency (RF) could offer detailed location information.
BikeTrac Sales Director, Bill Taylor explained, “When we began developing our system, we knew that we had to make sure our tech worked specifically for motorcycles. At the time, others offered GPS, GPRS and GSM, but RF was something that other devices didn’t. This was crucial in our minds because it allowed us to work closer with the authorities to prove we know where the stolen bike is; it’s a big reason why we’ve hit the magic 1000.”
With BikeTrac’s RF function deployed, the location of any stolen bike is much more precise, enabling those on scene to obtain a search warrant much easier, be it a block of garages, lock-up or even sometimes inside a dwelling.
While BikeTrac’s milestone is recorded over the last nine years, motorcycle theft still shows no signs of slowing, with the team recording their busiest ever August, with over 29 bikes reunited with their owners; sadly not a statistic that can be said for machines that aren’t equipped.
On top of security, BikeTrac also offer other useful functions, from downloadable and shareable routes, to service reminders, live battery voltage information and even a ‘bike down’ feature, should a motorcycle have a topple over. On top of this, current subscribers also benefit from ‘BikeTrac Advantage’, giving customers discounts from chosen partners, ranging from track days to earplugs, to cleaning products.
All of BikeTrac’s functions and benefits can be accessed online, with a dedicated App also available too.
BikeTrac has a recommended retail price of £299 with subscription starting from £9.99 per month, plus fitment, with 1, 2 & 3 year options too.
