“All levels of motorcycle safety must have a chance of being penetrated. It is still recommended to use double lock in other areas such as disc locks, alarms and so on,” said Mukti, Wahana TSF Instructor in a written statement received by detikcom.
According to him, nowadays motor thieves are increasingly sophisticated in addressing the development of standard safety technology manufacturers. Therefore, the role of the owner of the vehicle itself is required.
Although all motorcycles, especially Honda, have been equipped with lock safety with the addition of a keyhole magnetic cap, this does not complicate the theft of motorcycle vehicles that are only done in a matter of seconds.
Mukti’s advice, preferably when parking the handlebars of the motorcycle is turned to the right, which is usually turned to the left. Because, turning the handlebars to the right can increase the time of theft. “But it can still be tricked by thieves,” he said.
Then what about motors that use keyless systems? It could be that a motorcycle thief has learned it. Mentioned, motors with keyless systems can be stolen by falsifying system signals. When lending a motorcycle, try not knowing the built-in pin number (barcode) to suppress the possibility of theft by using emergency operations.

Pay attention to environmental safety conditions when leaving the motor for a long period of time. Add a variety of safety locks that can be purchased at automotive exchanges in the form of disc locks, brake handle locks, and even padlocks that can be applied in gear for motorcycles that use chains to prevent motorcycle theft.
According to Mukti, vigilance from motorcycle owners is the best ‘key’ when leaving a motorcycle in a location and for a long period of time. [*]
