On September 4, 2012, the owner of a 2011 Suzuki GSX R-750 motorcycle contacted the New York Police Department to report her motorcycle stolen while parked on East160th Street in the confines of the Bronx’s 42nd Precinct. NYPD officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the motorcycle.

A short while later, officers from NYPD’s Auto Crime Division picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Suzuki on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked and located the motorcycle parked inside a NYC housing development parking lot on Tinton Avenue.

The officers conducted surveillance on the motorcycle for several hours, but when no one returned for the bike, they impounded the vehicle. The motorcycle sustained only minor damage in the theft, and was later returned to a very happy owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Suzuki GSX R-750 motorcycle on February 8, 2012 at Two Wheel Corp. in Mineola, New York.
