The penetration of motorcycle is pretty rapid these days, especially in the developing countries. This is mainly because the price of motorcycle is relatively cheaper than car. Moreover, it is also because people think motorcycle has much functionality especially in its ability to avoid traffic. That’s why the order toward motorcycle products is always high.

That’s why many people use alarm device that can be controlled via remote control to secure their motorcycle from theft.

But, if for car this technology is already mandatory to be applied, for motorcycle it is not. Only on some products, especially flagship of the company, manufacturers already apply this technology.
However, it is actually important to apply immobilizer into the motorcycle products. It is because based on the research, car theft cases can be decreased around 40% from the 1995 – 2008 period of time. So, if it can decrease theft on car effectively, why don’t we apply it on motorbike?
