Italian locks maker Maggi Open Maggi link in a new window, have recently shown their latest motorcycle and scooter lock called the I-Close. Although they have been tinkering on the products for months, shown it at several exhibitions, the lock has not reached the stores yet. According to Maggie, we're a few months away (still).

I-Close is a strong and decent disc mini u-lock, a lock you place on your motorcycle disc or wheel spokes. So far nothing out of the ordinary, except that the orange & black lock looks pretty solid and secure. But the interesting thing about the Maggi I-Close is that it is equipped with a GSM transmitter.

Once it detects movement, like when thieves try to remove the lock, it sends a SMS/Text message to up to 5 phones, warning its owner that the bike is being stolen.

You can also equip the motorcycle itself with a GPS tracking device. The device will communicate with the I-Close, letting you not only know that your ride is being stolen, but also where it is at that moment.

A smartphone app, iPhone and Android, is also on the cards.

Handy, but of course the criminal world will not stand still either. For a few bucks you can buy GSM signal blockers, thereby preventing the lock from sending you messages. Checkmate?

The product is not yet to be found on the Maggi web site, but then they are still marked for 2009, so maybe they not updating their own site anymore.

Rumored cost: €400.
