Looks like car theft technology is finally coming to motorcycles. For quite some time now, cars can be equipped with tracking devices for when the car gets stolen. Now, motorcycles can be equipped similar thanks to Phantom Tracking Security Systems.

The alarm & security system is top-off-the-line, high tech. The alarm system is first of all like any of the traditional alarm system; engine disabler and a 3D movement detector. So, if someone wants to steal your motorcycle, it's disabled !

Then comes the really high-tech part; the system is equipped with a GSM/GPRS transmitter, a GPS and Bluetooth and ZigBee transmission technologies (both are wireless transmission standards).

In case of unauthorized movement of your motorcycle,  the system transmits via cellular line, the exact position of your precious motorcycle to a 24/7 monitoring center.

Additionally, the built-in software can detect if your motorcycle has crashed !! The monitoring center can then warn the emergency services to your exact location, even if you're unconscious.

When you park your motorcycle, and turn on the device, it sends a date, time and location to the monitoring center. If someone tries to steal your motorcycle, it will not only send an alarm to the monitoring center, but also to your remote's paging device (picture above). The monitoring center will contact you immediately to see if the motorcycle has indeed been stolen (or you just forgot to de-activate the unit). If stolen, the center calls the law enforcement with details of the exact whereabouts of the motorcycle.

If you have crashed, the unit detects and notifies the monitoring center. They in their turn will attempt to contact you. If they are unable to talk to you, or if you confirm the crash, the monitoring center will call the emergency services.

The Phantom Tracking unit has been designed specifically for Harley-Davidson and custom V-Twins motorcycles, but any motorcycle can be fitted with this device. Currently, the monitoring center only covers Mexico, USA and Canada.

No pricing information, but I'm sure it's not going to be cheap, but then again, neither is your motorcycle.

Great device, but I guess it would be fun to see what happens when you install it on an off-road motorcycle...NoNo
