ISLAMABAD: All of us have heard or seen trackers that would nail car or SUV thieves down but here comes a system that texts you if someone steals, or even touches, your motorbike in the parking.
The new Scorpio Ride `Core’ system from Massachusetts-based Scorpio Sounds uses an Apple or Android app to keep track of a module installed inside the bike, Khaleej Times reported.
The box plugs into the battery and relays everything from location to tyre pressure to your phone, tablet or computer.
The `Core’ connects straight into the bike’s battery so it monitors the charge status and can send a message if the juice is getting too low.
If someone manages to steal the bike, it trigger the app’s emergency mode which produces a pin code that gives police temporary access to the live location feed and can be tracked to between 10 and 20 feet.
“If a thief disconnects the bike’s battery, the unit has an internal backup power source to keep sending information until they catch the thief,” the developer informed.
