The devices will allow owners to keep track of where their motorcycles are and can help authorities recover their bikes if they get stolen. Honda claims the TrakKING Adventure devices from Datatool have produced a recovery rate of 90%.
The devices typically cost £349 (US$461.80), and Honda UK will cover the cost of the equipment and installation. New owners will, however, be responsible for the subscription fees which come in at around £10 (US$13.25) a month.
