Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

Mo­tor­cy­cle theft is chang­ing. There’s a new breed of crim­i­nal in town, and they’ve de­vel­oped new tricks for nick­ing our bikes. Last year’s crime stats went through the roof. More than 519 two-wheel­ers will be stolen this week alone, and less than half of them will be re­cov­ered. That’s around 27,000 bikes a year, cost­ing the in­sur­ance in­dus­try - and you via your pre­mium - £105 mil­lion. So we brought in the world’s lead­ing bike theft ex­pert, Dr Ken Ger­man, to talk us through who’s nick­ing our bikes, where they’re go­ing and how we can beat the thieves. Here’s ev­ery­thing you need to know about the chang­ing face of theft in 2017.
