UK Motorcycle Security Tracker
Security in London is vital. There are over 15,000 thefts a year in London alone and with the rise in popularity of motorcycles and scooters, this number is rising dramatically.
Beyond physical security, a remote tracking device is the best way to add another layer of security to your bike.
We have partnered with Monimoto as our FAVOURITE brand of tracker. Here’s why.

Overview & Features
You can install the device easily, on any motorcycle or scooter, and be set up in minutes.
The key fob which you carry with you will automatically disarm the alarm when you’re close to the bike, and re-arm it when you leave.
Uses its own 1.5V batteries so:
• Won’t drain your bike battery
• Doesn’t need wiring in
• Can be moved between bikes
• Lasts 12 months and more
Calls your Phone
If the device detects suspicious movement, it immediately gets in touch and starts transmitting live location data to your app.
Monimoto can sense the difference between theft and heavy wind or traffic vibrations. The app also gives you control over sensitivity levels.
Monimoto Tracker Review
The anti-theft GPS tracker from Monimoto is incredibly simple by design. I’ve tried all kinds of security devices and considering the amount of features the Monimoto has, this was a very easy installation process that took only around 10 minutes to complete.
In the box, the hardware consists of the tracker and the key fob. There are also a couple of thick cable-ties for securing the tracker on your bike.
Setting it up
The set up process is then entirely through the app.
The app walks you through the steps, connects to the tracker, installs firmware updates and saves your phone number.
The Alarm Notification
The Monimoto alarm number will send you a text when you are registered and setup is complete.
You’ll be prompted to save this number to your contacts so that you recognise the call if your alarm is triggered.
If like me, your phone is always on silent, I would also recommend you go into the contact settings and allow the number to ring out loud.
On iOS this is called Emergency Bypass as shown. I also gave the contact an Alert sound that was different to my ringtone, in the hope I won’t ignore it under any circumstances!
The final step is to hide the tracker on your bike. It fit well for me in a space under the seat, which normally would be bolted on, so any tampering should trigger the alarm.
The supplied cable ties are handy for securing it in place.
