The MASTER Security Scheme (Motorcycle and Scooter Tagged Equipment Register) developed to combat the problem of motorcycle theft in the UK. This is the first and only official national scheme approved by the police authorities.
The scheme is available to all manufacturer and importer members of the MCI so that they can offer new motorcycles and scooters, marked, tagged, registered and recorded, thereby cutting crime and restoring consumer confidence.
Many manufacturers have already adopted the scheme and their 2013 models will be MASTER Scheme marked e.g. BMW, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Triumph, Ducati and Yamaha. The Scheme is also suitable for smaller volume manufacturers and importers e.g. ZingBikes and Zero Motorcycles have signed up to the Scheme.
The delivery partner is Datatag ID Ltd. MCI have negotiated a contract with Datatag at an agreed price per MASTER Scheme marked bike.
The scheme will reduce motorcycle crime as the motorcycle parc of marked machines increases over time.
