Not all motorbike thefts are alike, and this one gave us a lot of trouble. Between the biker's account below and the press article at the end of the article, you will understand that this was a misdeed carried out by thieves who took all the risks, managing to block the 3 dogs that were standing guard on the spot, but also and above all to lose the police after they had fired on their vehicle!

Here is the account of Jeremy whose Kawasaki Z800 Full Black was stolen from his home, alerting him in real time for the burglary that was taking place:

"On Tuesday 8 June 2021 I received a first alert from my Pegase Moto tracker at around 2.50pm alerting me to a suspicious movement on my bike, a few seconds later after deactivating the first alert I received a second one, the app was indicating a strange movement of my bike: a movement on the spot from left to right.

I immediately contacted the police, my bike was being stolen from my home.

Thanks to Pegase, I was made aware of the situation: it was not just a motorbike theft, but a complete burglary of my home.

With all the GPS points that Pegase Moto provided, the police started a chase with the thieves! But the thieves realised that they were being traced, so they switched off my tracker at around 3.30pm.

We lost their trail after about twenty kilometres... But further on, the driver of the motorbike missed a bend on the banks of the Loire. So he abandoned my bike and equipment and threw them into the Loire, unfortunately we were no longer behind him when this happened.

A few days later, I was contacted by people who were canoeing down the Loire. Thanks to a medical card inside my motorbike jacket, they managed to contact me with the GPS coordinates of my equipment.

By matching the last GPS points that Pegasus had given me with these new GPS points, an area of about 5 km became apparent!

So I went there, accompanied by some friends. After 600m of searching, we found my bike in a ravine!

The suspects are still at large, but my bike was found thanks to my Pegase GPS tracker, the gendarmerie and the kindness of some people.

Thank you all and see you soon on the roads!"

The GPS tracker Pegase Moto, by alerting of the burglary which took place in real time, allowed the gendarmerie to intervene immediately and to hunt down the thieves.

Comment choisir son traceur GPS ?

Les traceurs gps (parfois désignés par les termes « balises gps » ou « trackers ») sont des produits destinés à la géolocalisation et au suivi en temps réel des motos, scooters, buggy ou quads équipés de batteries 12V. Leur précision s’évalue en « nombre de positions envoyées par seconde ». À ce titre, Pégase est le plus précis du marché car il envoie jusqu’à 4 points par seconde. L’autonomie des traceurs GPS varie selon leur batterie interne et l’utilisation (ou non) de la batterie du véhicule. Pégase étant raccordé à la batterie du véhicule, il se recharge en permanence dès que le moteur tourne, ce qui lui confère une autonomie illimitée si vous roulez au minimum 2 fois dans le mois. La taille est aussi un élément important dans le choix d’un tracker gps. Pégase est plus petit qu’une carte de crédit, ce qui le classe dans les produits « mini gps » facilement dissimulables. Enfin le prix d’un traceur gps moto est à prendre en considération. Les traceurs aussi précis et perfectionnés que Pégase coutent en général 299€, mais attention : certain demandent en plus de payer un abonnement. Il faut alors calculer le coût du produit sur 3 ans pour savoir combien il va réellement vous coûter. Par exemple : un traceur à 299€ + 5€ mois revient à 479€ au bout de 3 ans. A l’inverse : Pégase est totalement sans abonnement et donc son prix ne bouge pas dans le temps. Même au bout de 3 ans il vous aura coûté 299€, soit 180€ de moins qu’un traceur gps avec abonnement.
