The Motorcycle Industry Association has launched a security marking scheme. Called the MASTER (Motorcycle and Scooter Tagged Equipment Register), the scheme has been developed in conjunction with both Datatag and the Police.
It is available to participating manufacturer members of the MCI so that they can offer new motorcycles and scooters marked, tagged, registered and recorded by the MASTER scheme. Early adopting members of the scheme are Honda, Triumph, Suzuki, Kawasaki, BMW and Yamaha.
Steve Kenward, CEO of the MCI, said: “Security marking of bikes has been proven to be effective in both reducing theft and aiding recovery, and we are confident that by launching this scheme we start a long-term reduction in motorcycle crime.”
Detective Constable Ian Elliott, from the Met Police’s stolen vehicle division, said: “We’ve long known that security marking is one of the most effective theft deterrents. This move help reduce crime enormously here in the capital, as thieves will simply avoid these marked machines.”
London is the hardest hit city by motorcycle crime, with on average more than 35 machines taken each day.
