I regrettably acknowledge that this is a case of locking the door after horse has bolted but a tracker, well hidden, could have seen your bike returned and possibly the scum-bags collared. Maybe not a common method of bike security in your locale but well worth considering with these high value, and personally precious, bikes. Needn't be too expensive either with a bit of ingenuity; on my Tursimo I had a set-up that I sourced off of eBay that cost about 120GBP (including a lifetime 50GBP subscription to a portal with all sorts of extra functionality). Fitted this myself taking time to locate it somewhere that would be impossible to spot and dammed hard to remove or disable. I now have another brand fitted to my Multistrada.

A lot of high value bike thefts in the UK now have the professional thieves aware that a tracker might be fitted. As a result they tend to move the bike to another on-street location a few miles away for 24-48 hours. Then, after that time, return with a van to move it on to their workshop assuming that no recovery means the bike is tracker-free and they can continue without fear of being pinpointed.

Thumbs down ?

Tim;
Really sorry this happened to you my friend

I don't know how registration is done in New Zealand but in California the VIN and engine numbers are on the registration
since~ 1970 and it really cut down on bike thefts......because the engines were unusable on the street

Stolen bikes end up 3 ways
1. As track bikes
2. Stripped for replacing crash damage on another bike
3. Exported to a country with lax laws

Google says there are 17 race tracks in New Zealand, contact each of them and have them be on the lookout
Contact all the track day promotors and have them be on the lookout too
Contact your Customs officials

Mv Augusta Stolen also but got it back!

I had my Tourismo Veloce stolen while I was away in Philippines, I live in Brisbane, what these Barstards don't know is they cannot start it with out the Key because of the electronic chip in must match the computer in the bike to get replacement parts they have to order from the Factory in Italy, (my bike was found abandoned down the street) they must have realized to start selling it in pieces would also ring alarm bells, around the world, we are few and far between our bikes, also the mechanics whom can work on them (Not Many), so easy to trace because VIN numbers are required, these should be registered to you if you did your Warrantee papers and sent them in. Take Heart Bro send out the feelers to everywhere, good luck to you!

Very sorry to read this Tim. Your heart must have sunk followed by complete disgust & anger.

These pricks won't stop until they are caught.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

I hope you get it back. Despite CCTV coverage in UK being on a par with North Korea bikes are often not recovered.

I got my Brutale 910r to replace a Fireblade SP that was stolen in broad daylight from the car park in front of the office. I thought something older and exotic might help- canít be sure I think they steal first then determine what to do with it.

Tracker plus some [email protected] off physical security helps, plus a cover but they are cunning - case the place etc.

910R 2007 model registered 2009
