With scooter theft on the rise and in the headlines, both the Metropolitan Police and MotorCycle Industry Association (MCIA) are advising riders to layer security, using more than one device to maximise protection.

Scooter theft isn’t restricted to London – West Midlands police surveyed parking bays in Birmingham’s Cathedral Quarter and discovered that only 40% of bikes and scooters were protected with a chain, disc lock or similar device.

Specifically designed for modern and retro scooters, Piaggio produce alarms, handlebar locks, chain and disc Locks, offering multiple ways to secure vehicles and giving owners peace of mind that their machine will be safe and sound when they return to it. The range includes:

DISK LOCK TOP – a compact brake lock with a 5mm diameter locking pin and reversible key, with drill-proof and pick-proof casing. Supplied in a carry bag with reminder cable. RRP: £33.00.

PIAGGIO ® MULTILINK LOCK TOP – cable lock, protected by steel tubes with pipe-ball joints, for increased flexibility, and extra drill protection on cylinder. Available in 100-170 cm lengths, RRP starts at: £29.00.

CHAIN LOCK – 110-140 cm long chain, with 10 mm square steel links, secured with a 12 mm diameter shackle in a hardened steel lock body, with drill-proof and pick-proof keyway. RRP from £45.00

HANDLEBAR LOCKS – Permanently attached to the scooter for convenience, they can be secured to the handlebar in seconds to immobilise the vehicle. When not in use they fit discreetly between the seat and footrest, keeping underseat storage free. Extension cables are also available, allowing owners to secure their scooter to an item of road furniture. RRP from £59.00.

Piaggio produces a range of electronic alarm systems too, including the E-POWER. This plug & play is system designed for scooters equipped with a pre-installation connection. It comes with an electronic key and two button remote control. RRP £146.00.

Hundreds of motorcyclists took to the streets of Bristol on Saturday to show solidarity with the police in their efforts to tackle the rising tide of bike crime in the city.

Organisers of the Bristol Bike Theft Awareness Ride estimate that 700 motorcyclists participated, setting out from Cribbs Causeway, on the northern outskirts of the city, at noon.

Accompanied by a pair of police motorcyclists, the procession wound its way peacefully through several known hot-spots for bike theft, where many local residents clapped and waved as the cavalcade rumbled through.

Saturday shoppers and tourists stopped and stared as hundreds of bikes passed them on Park street – rated as one of the most fashionable high streets in the country – before passing City Hall and rolling into Fowlers Motorcycles in the city centre at 1.30 pm.

Bristol has witnessed an increase in bike crime recently, particularly in the north of the city, where gangs are stealing bikes to joy-ride and posting pictures on social media. Local motorcyclists organised the Bristol Bike Theft Awareness Ride with four main aims:

  1. To raise awareness of the problem and remind motorcycle owners how they can aid the Police in their work.
  2. To share tips with riders on keeping their pride and joy safe and secure.
  3. To show solidarity with the law-abiding community in Bristol and demonstrate that they are all working together to tackle this issue.
  4. To demonstrate support for Avon and Somerset Police and their tireless work in tackling motorcycle thefts and related crime.

Fowlers Motorcycles, which has been serving Bristol’s bikers since 1926, was happy to host the cavalcade as the final destination for the first ever Bike Theft Awareness Ride, and has pledged its support for future events.

Master Motorcycle Technician Dave Ball, one of Fowlers of Bristol’s many highly skilled technicians, secured a very respectable second place in the European Championship held in Germany this September. Having already won the UK champoinship, Dave was sent to Germany to represent our fair isle against stiff competition from other top class mechanics from across Europe.

Dave has been with Fowlers for 20 years and his talent has frequently been recognised; he scooped the Yamaha UK Tech Grand Prix last year, won the Suzuki UK Motorcycle Technician of the Year in 2013 and another UK Technician of the Year award from Yamaha UK in 2007 as well.
