Piaggio Group And Tracker Network UK Work To Help Customers Beat Winter Bike Thieves 1Long dark nights present new opportunities for bike thieves, with thefts spiking in the winter months. Piaggio & C. S.p.A. (Piaggio Group) and its Piaggio, Vespa, Aprilia and Moto Guzzi retailers across the UK are helping buyers of all Piaggio Group products, including the Vespa GTS 300, Piaggio Beverly 300, Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 and Aprilia’s range of 125cc models protect their purchase with access to vehicle tracking units from the UK’s leading stolen vehicle recovery expert (SVR), TRACKER.

By partnering with TRACKER, Piaggio Group customers will benefit from the peace of mind that comes with its proven VHF technology. In combination with traditional security precautions, TRACKER contributes significantly to a robust defence against theft and ensures a greater chance of recovery should an owner become the victim of unscrupulous criminal activity.

A Piaggio customer in Esher, Surrey, recently learned first-hand of how effective the TRACKER device is when his Piaggio Beverly 300 was stolen from his driveway one evening. It was only when he received an alert from TRACKER that he realised his bike, worth over £5,000, was missing.

Commenting on the theft, the customer said: “I received a text from TRACKER to alert me to some unusual movement of my Piaggio scooter, which I thought was on my driveway. I opened the curtain only to discover that it was gone. I immediately called the police and TRACKER, and within one hour my bike was located half a mile away from my house. Although some of the modifications and accessories had been stolen from the bike, I was able to take it home with me that night. If I hadn’t had a TRACKER device fitted, there is no doubt that I would never have seen the bike again.”

Clive Wain, Head of Police Liaison at TRACKER, comments: “Unfortunately, bike theft escalates in autumn and winter, which means owners need to be extra vigilant. Our partnership with Piaggio and Vespa means new owners benefit from TRACKER’s stolen vehicle recovery systems. A tracking device won’t stop a scooter from being stolen, but it significantly increases the chances of police finding and recovering it.”

TRACKER’s technology allows a signal to be transmitted, received & tracked regardless of location.

Simon Greenacre, Marketing Communications Coordinator for Piaggio in the UK, said, “Hearing about a stolen motorcycle or scooter is always unpleasant news but, in this case, our partnership with TRACKER has demonstrated that it is possible to fight back against thieves and get a positive result. This example of how TRACKER’s leading technology can offer peace of mind and protection for our customers is important because working together is a key strategy in defeating the criminals.”
