Yamaha MT-07 stolen

During a beautiful evening on June 28, 2020, Yanis took advantage of his motorcycle to go to his gym in 94. After training and returning to the locker room, he noticed several GeoRide alerts on his smartphone: an alarm vibration and a zone exit alarm .

When he gets out, Yanis unfortunately notices that it is too late and that his motorcycle is gone. But thanks to GeoRide he can follow the movement of his two-wheeler in real time and then very quickly notifies the police. With all the information in hand, the police were able to intervene and find his motorcycle !

Too easy to find a stolen motorcycle?

We can legitimately question the ease with which motorcycles are found, it's true: how come thieves get fooled?

To answer this question: let's study several situations .

A thief takes the motorcycle:

  • You receive a vibration alarm in seconds via push notification or phone call.

  • You receive a zone exit alarm when the vehicle leaves the zone where it was located.

  • You see the location of the motorcycle evolving in real time .

Now let's add some difficulties:
  • The thief removes the battery from the vehicle : you receive a disconnection alarm and the box continues to operate on its internal battery for a few days.

  • The thief removes the box from the vehicle : by the time he manages to remove the saddle from the motorcycle and find the location of the hidden GeoRide box, you will already be warned of a vibration and disconnection alarm .

    In the numerous thefts observed, we noticed that everything happened very quickly and that the criminals did not have time to try to tear off a saddle or look for the presence of a possible GPS Tracker.

  • The thief jams the box's signal : although jamming is an urban legend, we have thought of this possibility: you receive a network disconnection alert within a few minutes as soon as the signal is jammed.

    This permanent connection between the GeoRide robot and your motorcycle also gives you even more peace of mind: you know that GeoRide protects your motorcycle.

As you can see, no matter what happens you will be warned . It's simple in principle but it changes a lot of things, the sooner we are warned of a theft the more chances we have of finding it.
On the majority of flights that we have had, the operating mode is often the same.

The criminals take the motorcycle via a van (95% of thefts are carried out by kidnapping) and leave it in a place to check if it is equipped with GeoRide. This process ultimately benefits everyone: thieves are more likely to avoid the crime and GeoRide users get their motorcycle back.

On the other hand, we have not yet found a solution for those who have not switched to GeoRide...
