Piaggio and Vespa retailers in the UK have announced they’ll be supplying a FREE TRACKER with every new Vespa GTS 300, or Piaggio Beverly 300/350 until the end of October. Owners will also qualify for a 10% insurance discount with specialist insurance company Lexham Insurance.
Piaggio have joined forces with TRACKER Network UK to provide the free trackers on the models listed above, bought between August 1st and 31st October 2018. Customers will also get one year’s free subscription to TRACKER’s monitoring system and qualify for Lexham’s 10% off insurance offer once the TRACKER is fitted and activated.
Used alongside mechanical security devices and basic common sense a TRACKER gives an owner additional peace of mind and the best chance of getting their scooter recovered if it is unfortunate enough to be stolen.
Regular SLUK readers will know we’re committed to crime prevention, detection and recovery. This latest initiative from Piaggio is long overdue but will certainly help to give at least some peace of mind to owners of the most commonly stolen models.
We always recommend locking your scooter to an immovable object, no matter where you park it. Cover it if it’s left out in the open and take advantage of any security offered by your chosen manufacturer.
Honda recently started fitting a free tracker to all their new models, Piaggio have followed suit (albeit for a limited time at the moment) and no doubt other manufacturers will also jump on board. With the help of manufacturers and the vigilance of owners we can all help to tackle scooter and bike crime.
