datatag uv systemAll New & Improved Datatag Motorcycle System Launched

With new “stealth” UV reactive etching & Unique Forensic DNA-

Datatag the market leading security system providers have listened carefully to dealers, insurers, the Police and more importantly, their customers and have developed an all new and improved Motorcycle security system for 2009. Datatag is still exceptional value and the most effective theft deterrent security system available on the market today providing riders with peace of mind, yearly insurance savings whilst adding value and acting as one of the most powerful theft deterrents available.

The Datatag marking systems are the most sophisticated on the market and permanently mark and protect the Motorcycle in such a way that it is virtually impossible to remove or deface. The state of the art identification technology including the new unique UV etchings and invisible Datatag Forensic DNA are registered against the details of the correct keeper of the Motorcycle and this important information is stored on Datatag’s 24/7 Home Office and ACPO Police secure and accredited database.

The success of the Datatag systems in identifying stolen property and helping to gain a prosecution (a 100% success rate since 1992) means that by protecting your Motorcycle with Datatag it has been independent reported that a Motorcycle can be 2 – 5 times more likely to be stolen without protecting it with systems such as Datatag.

The new motorcycle etching system is now virtually invisible to the naked eye and the covert etchings can only been seen under UV light, and so does not spoil the aesthetics of the motorcycle’s bodywork. Datatag has also introduced a new warning label - a discreet domed resin badge that is more in keeping with the style and design of today's motorcycles. Plus, Datatag have introduced a new combination of their electronic tags or Datatag’s which are permanently hidden in areas such as the frame, wheels and wiring loom etc which means that a criminal would have to destroy the Motorcycle to remove the unique Datatag identification technology – This will be virtually impossible.

Also, the all new tagging system continues with a further layer of security in Datatag's Datadots with the addition of a new forensic chemical DNA called Datatag DNA, an invisible solution. A criminal would now have to remove every last molecule of Datatag DNA to be completely confident that the Motorcycle or parts of the machine could not be traced back to the true registered keeper.

Chris Harrison the National Sales Manager for Datatag commented "We are very pleased to be working with both Yamaha Motor UK and Datatool with the launch of our exciting all New Motorcycle System, which continues to be the market leader and the only true multi – layered/ technology system in the market place. We look forward to developing the business further with the Yamaha dealer network and Datatool’s experienced specialist security sales team".

The Datatag system has received Home Office and ACPO accreditation under the Secured by Design scheme and complies with several other quality accreditations including ISO and LPS (Loss Protection Standards) for their secure database. Whilst the Datatag technologies have also been approved by Thatcham under their strict new TQA Scheme.

The new invisible or “stealth” Datatag motorcycle tagging system are available this summer from accredited Datatag stockists, for DIY or dealer fitting, and retails at £89.99.
