Launch of MCI MASTER Security Scheme


Recognising the effect that motorcycle crime is having on the motorcycle community, MCI launched an official security marking scheme called The MASTER Security Scheme which will be utilised by its motorcycle members.

The launch took place on 24th July with Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service, Craig Mackey QPM and Lord Henley, Home Office Minister for Crime Prevention and Anti-Social Behaviour Reduction at New Scotland Yard.

Figures show an estimated 43% of all insurance total loss payouts are due to theft and added to this the figure from the Motorcycle Crime Reduction Group suggest that 40% of victims of motorcycle theft leave the market. 

The MASTER Security Scheme is :
  • The first and only official national scheme approved by police authorities.
  • Powered by Datatag ID Ltd; a leading supplier of security marking technology.
  • For new motorcycles and scooters, which will be marked, tagged, registered and recorded.
  • Supported by motorcycle manufacturers; BMW, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha are the early adopters.

The aim of the scheme is to reduce motorcycle crime over time, to restore consumer confidence and to keep Britain’s bikers riding.
