Motorcycle Security UK
Unfortunately, once you have purchased your new "Pride & Joy", it is time to think about how to hang on to it, that is if your insurance company have not already insisted upon this prior to extending cover for you.
Motorcycle theft, as with all theft, seems to have become part of life. We hear many customers say "well, I'm covered for theft" but they have not taken into account the wrangles with the insurance company to establish value, the fact that even when covered for theft the policy excess will be lost by the victim not to mention the aggravation of getting home (although please be aware that approximately 80% of motorcycle thefts take place within the perimeter of the owners property - frightening isn't it). Security starts at home.
Below we give you the details of a couple of insurance recognised theft deterrents . The majority of high street insurance companies will offer a premium discount if one or more of these products are used - they have been proven to help reduce the odds.
Meta M357-T V2 Bike Alarm
Thatcham Category 1 Alarm/Immobiliser
Highly acclaimed, full specification alarm. Received 99% in MCN review and RiDE magazines 'Best Buy'!
The ultimate Cat. 1 motorcycle alarm / immobiliser. Updated and tuned version of the award winning Thatcham approved M357T. Super high spec combined with great reliability.
Thatcham Approval No: TMC1-118/1102
These units are generally sold "fitted" because for full Thatcham approval they need to be signed off and certificated by a qualified technician. Our staff are trained by Meta.
Price of the M357T V2 fitted is £350.00
Meta Moto Defcom Alarm upgrade.
For those that have motorcycles that come "Thatcham" immobilised from the factory, Meta have produced the Moto Defcom which is simply an alarm system that integrates with the immobiliser already available. To the end user essentially both the V2 and the V2-1 are the same and benefit from very similar specifications.
As a norm, factory immobiled bikes are caregorised as Thatcham 2 protected. The upgrade of a Defcom system take it to the highest level. ie. Thatcham 1.
Price of the Moto Defcom fitted is £299.00
Both systems are a very simple one button operation.
Please note that both of these systems are hard wired into the bikes wiring loom and will take several hours to install correctly. Additionally with the recent introduction of canline technology, there are now numerous models that we would not suggest the hard wired system. In this case we would offer alternative options. Please give us a call to discuss further. 01508 471919
