Riders urged to think about security as spring approaches

Riders are being encouraged to make the most of a free-to-use resource that compares standard-fit security measures on many popular bikes and scooters.

With spring on the horizon, and the end of the winter hibernation period near, many riders will be considering buying a new bike for their 2020 adventures.

With theft still an issue, the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) is calling on riders to check what security measures are standard-fit before committing to a purchase.

Launched in 2018, ‘MCIA Secured’ scores each model from all participating manufacturers against the programme criteria and awards a star for each layer of security fitted as standard, to a maximum of five stars.

This includes the following device categories:

  • Steering lock
  • Immobiliser
  • Alarm
  • Tracking device
  • MASTER Security System

The free-to-use resource can be accessed via the MCIA website.
