KTM Duke 690 stolen and found thanks to Pegase Moto GPS tracker

After a few weeks of worries, Gabriel finally found his KTM Duke 690 thanks to his Pegase GPS tracker and the involvement of the police.

He tells us here the story of the theft of his motorbike which had been planned (the motorbike having been previously located in this underground car park, with the analysis of the locks in place so as to return with the appropriate tools). Nothing to do with the opportunistic nature of the Yamaha MT-07 theft that we have reported on in the columns of this blog.

"The theft of my Duke 690 KTM took place during the night of July 19th to 20th in my underground car park...

That day, I had to get up at 4am to go to work. When I woke up, I discovered a notification from my Pegase GPS tracker alerting me to a suspicious movement at 2.57am. I rushed to my garage and found my bike had been stolen. All that was left was my disc block and a piece of the front disc that had been cut off to remove my classic lock.

The next day, in the late afternoon, my bike was found. Pegase tracker informed me that it was in one of the many garage lockers in Pantin. I immediately contacted the police and found them there.

When I got there, a dedicated police force team was already searching the car park. Unfortunately, with more than 200 stalls, it was impossible for them to open them all... They did leave me their phone number and told me to contact them if the bike moved again.

For the next two weeks the bike did not move. On a Friday evening, something new happened: the tracker woke up and located my bike in a car scrapyard in Bobigny. I immediately called the police who went there but did not find my KTM motorcycle.

The next day, between 12 and 1pm, I received about ten alerts from Pegase indicating movements. At that moment, a policewoman called me (out of the Force opening hours) to tell me that she had sent a team and announced that they had found my bike almost intact ! Just about to be made to parts.

My bike was taken to the pound and I was able to get it back a few days later. "

Thank you Gabriel for the testimony of this happy ending and thanks to the involvement of the police!

We will also remember that we must always keep hope, even here after two weeks of anguish!

How to choose a GPS tracker?
GPS trackers (sometimes referred to as "GPS tags”) are products designed to geolocate and track motorbikes, scooters, buggies, or ATVs equipped with 12V batteries in real time. Their accuracy is measured in "number of positions sent per second". As a result, Pegase and Flashbird are the most accurate on the market, sending up to 4 points per second. The autonomy of GPS trackers varies according to their internal battery and the use (or not) of the vehicle battery. Pegase and Flashbird are connected to a vehicle's battery, so they are being constantly recharged as soon as the engine is running, which gives them unlimited autonomy, as long as you drive at least twice a month. Size is also an important consideration when choosing a GPS tracker. Pegase and Flashbird are smaller than a credit card, making them "mini GPS" products that are easy to conceal.
