Following a landmark year in 2018 for BikeTrac, where the renowned motorcycle tracking experts recovered 237 machines and eclipsed 1000 recoveries in total, 2019 looks set to continue the trend, as the team celebrate 10 years in the market, while introducing yet another new function to customers.
Launched in 2009 by a team of motorcycle enthusiasts keen to make an impact on theft, BikeTrac has since become renowned for its motorcycle tracking expertise, mainly down to a recovery rate of over 90% and some high profile recoveries that have seen the team locate stolen machines literally thousands of miles away in some cases.
BikeTrac’s Bill Taylor reflected on the milestone, commenting, “While we can’t quite believe that a decade has passed, we are extremely grateful for the support we have received from customers and the motorcycle industry.
“The whole team at BikeTrac are extremely passionate about what they do, from the technical crew who work to make sure our technology is at the top of its game, to the team in our Secure Operating Centre who work 24/7, through to those that go out on location to recoveries and see the product do its job. We’re overwhelmed by the positive feedback from our customers and look forward to developing BikeTrac even more in the next decade.”
Off the back of the celebrations, BikeTrac was quick to announce a new feature for existing and new customers with the announcement of its new ‘Service Function’.
Enabling customers to set reminders and details for servicing, once the data has been submitted and saved on each owner’s private profile, the BikeTrac unit will notify via email when a service is due, based on duration or mileage. On top of the updates, users can also log important reference information such as tyre pressures, chain tension or MOT reminders, and even set these reminders to be sent to other individuals, such as your service agent or dealer.
Taylor added, ”We’re always keen to bring meaningful innovations to the market, and as riders ourselves we like to think about what would be useful to us. The new Service Function is something we’ve been keen to bring to our product for quite some time, to not only make life easier but to aid safety too in the long run. We’re delighted to be able to add this function to BikeTrac without any additional costs for users. As ever, we welcome customer feedback.”
While BikeTrac enters its second decade in the fight against bike theft, the threat continues, with more than 27,0000 machines stolen in 2018. Tracking technology continues to offer the most effective method of defence, with BikeTrac’s multi-tier technology providing GPS, GPRS and RF (radio frequency), allowing for a recovery rate of 92% against the national average of 40%.
On top of security and the new Service Function, BikeTrac also offers other useful functions, from downloadable and shareable routes, to 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 discounts from chosen partners, ranging from track schools to sat navs, to bike clothing.
Accessibility has never been easier either, with all of BikeTrac’s functions and benefits accessed online, with a dedicated free App also available.
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.
