Over 22,000 motorbikes are stolen in the UK every year. What’s worrying is that these figures are growing significantly. In London alone a bike is stolen every single hour, and what makes things worse for bike owners is that the percentage of bikes being recovered is shrinking – with less than half of stolen bikes being returned to their owner.
This is due to the fact that criminal gangs are unfortunately highly skilled and well experienced in bike theft. Motorbikes are also easy to hide/store, and can very quickly be stripped down to be sold for parts.
Bikes can be stolen en masse with ease and shipped out of the country within hours.
Many bikes are also stolen by gangs in order to carry out acts of crime with the bike providing a quick getaway. As you can imagine, once they have committed their act they will discard or destroy the bike accordingly.
Over the years there have been major advancements in factory fitted deterrents. However, the fact remains that bikes are four times more likely to be stolen than cars, and are the bread and butter for criminal gangs worldwide. Unfortunately, these thieves are very good at what they do, and because selling on stolen bikes is so lucrative to them, they will go to great lengths to ensure that they work effectively and efficiently to take a target’s bike.
Now we’ve gone over the scary facts and figures, what can you actually do to avoid having your bike stolen?
