Bike Trac made one of the most significant recoveries in the history of vehicle tracking this week, successfully recovering a British owned Ducati 899 Panigale over 1,000 miles away from where it was stolen, with the assistance of Interpol.
Stolen on Monday evening from South London, the £12,000 Ducati was quickly confirmed as a stolen machine thanks to the equipped Bike Trac unit communicating with its owner and the Secure Operating Centre (SOC). With the firm’s standard stolen vehicle process enabled, tracking of the Ducati commenced with a team dispatched from Bike Trac’s headquarters to assess the initial tracked location in London.
Bike Trac’s Bill Taylor picked up the story,“SOC quickly tracked the bike to a known location not far away in London, but due to this area being densely populated, local police could not offer us a search warrant even with our Radio Frequency technology showing a strong signal. From this point on we had to wait, but several hours later the Bike Trac unit showed the Ducati was on the move again and unfortunately crossed the English Channel before UK police could reach it.
