Riding a motorcycle on the road

With all the different motorcycle trackers on the market, it can be difficult to find the right one for your needs.

To help you decide, we at MCN have come up with this list of motorcycle security tracking devices that will easily and securely fit to your bike.

Built to protect and track your bike in the unfortunate event of a theft, these durable, waterproof devices offer alerts and full location tracking and could even save you money on your motorcycle insurance.

Why consider a tracker for your motorcycle?

There's no trick answers here. Effective motorcycle trackers simply act as a means of finding your bike, should it be stolen.

At one end of the market are the cheap units from companies you've never heard of - we strongly advise avoiding these and spend your money on something else instead. A step up from these are self-monitored systems from reputable companies that you install yourself.

These units send you alerts if something is awry and you can track movements via updates sent to an app on your phone.

At the other end of the scale are the managed systems where a team monitor vehicles fitted with the company's trackers 24/7. These people will contact you immediately, should your bike be stolen, and they will then liase with authorities to find the bike.
