Datatool TrakKING Motorcycle Tracker is a GPS/GSM based motorcycle tracker and theft recovery service designed to first alert you via SMS text message of a potential theft and then to provide a method of tracking and promptly recovering the bike or scooter if a theft does occur.
TrakKING activates automatically as soon as the vehicle ignition is switched off and monitors the vehicle for signs of unauthorised movement.
At the first sign of movement TrakKING will send an SMS text message to the customer advising the bike is moving. If the movement continues and the bike is moved away from where it was parked, Datatool TrakKING Motorcycle Tracker will enter full alert mode and notification will be sent to the dedicated 24/7/365 Vehicle Monitoring Team.
In the event of a suspected theft, the Vehicle Monitoring Team will contact the owner immediately and if a theft is confirmed, will liaise with the Police on the owner’s behalf to aid recovery. Thanks to the instant notification of theft, recovery of the stolen bike is far more likely than when a theft is reported several hours after the event.
Datatool TrakKING Motorcycle Tracker has been designed purely as a theft recovery service and does not record the journey history or log speed data, unless the vehicle is confirmed as stolen. When in alert mode, the full journey and speed data is retained and can be made available to the Police if required in order to aid in securing a criminal conviction.
Know where your vehicle is at anytime from
anywhere in the world with our mobile apps!
iOS & Android apps are available for TrakKING free of charge which allow you to remotely access your TrakKING account, manage your notification settings and to locate your motorcycle or scooter at any time.
KeyGuard is an optional subscription upgrade available to you which offers a text alert direct to your chosen number notifying you when your bike ignition is turned on.

What Clients Say
- I had the unfortunate experience of having my bike stolen in broad daylight for a multi storey car park. Upon the discovery of my bike not being where I left it, I immediately reported the theft to the Police and Scorpion Tracker 24 hour help line. Even though it was 9pm when I reported the theft the Scorpion team could not have been more helpful. Within 2 ½ hours I received a telephone call from the Police saying they have been told by Scorpion where the bike is and the process is underway to obtain a warrant to enter the premises. Even the Police officer coordinating the warrant commented on how good Scorpion had been in liaising with him and he wished all tracker companies were as helpful. The bike was recovered and returned to me undamaged and in the same condition as how I left it in the multi storey. The bonus is that the Police have charged the thief.

- I just wanted to say that TrakKING is worth its weight in gold. My brand new BMW R1200GS Adventure was stolen after thieves used gainers to cut chains and they smashed out the alarm yet TrakKING got the Police to my bike in 20 minutes. I wish your company every success.
Mr M Lynch/London
BMW R1200GSA Owner
- Usually I always lock my bike but I was just popping in to see a friend for 10 minutes and didn’t bother! By the time I came back out onto the street the bike had gone! A passer-by said he’d just seen 2 hooded guys using a screwdriver to barrel the lock and drive it away. To make matters worse, I’d left my mobile phone at home so had no way of contacting Scorpion. By the time I got home in a taxi, 20 minutes had elapsed. Scorpion immediately contacted the police as to the bike’s location. It had been parked in a street about 2 miles away and covered with a bike cover. The police dispatched a unit and called me. Once forensics had finished their work at the crime scene, I was allowed to drive the bike off. The bike was stolen at 3.10 pm and secured at 3.50pm! The Datatool TrakKING product is an amazing way to have peace of mind when you leave your bike unattended and the customer service and back-up they provide with text SMS ’s etc is incredible. I wholeheartedly recommend it as a necessity these days when the threat of theft is ever-present.
Mr A Harris/London
Vespa GTS 300 Super Owner
- Thank you so much Scorpion for tracking my bike and your continued customer support. I did loads of research when I chose the bike I wanted; I found out that the bike I wanted was hugely attractive to thieves because it can be as effective off road as it is on. I was immediately sold on the idea of a silent system that would inform me of movement from my bike via text message. The company will also liaise with police who will actively search for the bike in real time, in the event of a theft. I was concerned that the tracker may also be spying on my riding too, but Scorpion explained that this was not the case so this being my only reservation, I went for it and I am so glad I did!
Scorpion was said to be the best product on the market and the customer service reviews were outstanding, so I had to go with them. The thieves got lucky because my phone went flat in on the night my bike was stolen around 18 months later. I was at my friends flat with my bike chained to a fence post and my alarm system turned on. They had come to steal the bike at 3:55 am and they cut my top of the range chain and managed to render my $350 alarm system from the USA useless as they dragged my bike from the front of the house. I woke up at 8:20 am and looked out to check on my bike as I always do (she is the love of my life after all). Realising the bike was gone I checked my phone and once I had plugged it in (doh!) a text came through straight away from Scorpion. I then called the number and was greeted by an outstanding service – the guy was very calm and told me what to do in simple terms, reassuring me that he would speak to the police on my behalf and do his best to recover my bike.
Even before my bike was stolen, the service I have received from Scorpion was worth the small subscription charge – I got the impression my bike was being carefully monitored all the time; I was phoned by Scorpion when my bike’s chain snapped and my bike was put on the back of a flatbed truck to be taken the garage and again when my battery was defective.
Scorpion enabled the local police to locate my pride and joy within an hour. The police were really impressed about how accurate the technology was and he was really chuffed and amazed to have recovered the bike. If you are reading this trying to make a decision about whether to get a tracker from Scorpion my advice to just do it – it is peace of mind and money well spent. Don’t be the person who has read this but never bought the system and who wakes up one day with your bike gone and always wondering what happened to it and thinking that every bike you see like you’re might actually be the one. When I do sell this bike I will tell the new buyer to continue the subscription too because the company allow for a change in ownership as well. If you care about your bike, a quality tracker is as vital a piece of kit as your helmet!

Yamaha WR125X Owner
- I totally rely on my bike to get me to and from work six days a week. After seven months hassle free parking I got lazy and didn’t put the lock on but knew I had Datatool TrakKING fitted. One day, I got the text saying my bike was moving – I had my phone on silent so was a few minutes late getting outside by which time I saw them riding off down the road on my bike. I called the police, then logged into my TrakKING account on my phone and phoned the emergency theft line. Within five minutes the details of the exact whereabouts of my bike was not only staggering but a gigantic relief that my pride and joy was traceable. Within one hour I had my bike back in my hands. Incredible! Something you invest money in actually works. It is worth every penny, your belongings really belong to you and no-one else with TrakKING fitted. Could not recommend it more

- My two ATV’s were stolen in the early hours last week. The first I knew of anything being wrong was your phone call. Once I’d passed the crime reference number to you it really was no time at all before I received the good news that both vehicles had been found – in a remote forest! Soon after that they were both recovered back to me. I have been absolutely delighted with the speed and service of both your product and team. I simply cannot thank you enough.
Mr. Walker / Scotland
- I would just like to thank Datatool Trakking for a great job in finding and recovering my customer’s motorcycle so quickly and in the early hours. Even in the back of a van in London, Datatool were able to guide the police to the stolen bike and return it to our very happy customer – the bike was even undamaged.
Great result guys, please keep up the good work as I’ve now got another customer for life!
C. Ingignoli, In Moto Ltd / London
- I have had other tracking products before but I can honestly say Datatool were first class they called me before I even knew my bike was missing and dealt with the whole theft speaking directly with the police, it’s a fantastic system and the best purchase for my bike this year, I’m so glad to have it back well done Datatool!
Stuart Mackenzie / London
Worked 100% when my bike was stolen. I was contacted almost immediately and the bike was tracked in less than an hour by the police with the help of Datatool. After losing a bike and not having this service, I find it invaluable and will always use this service.
Mr C White Kent
- Thanks to the quick thinking of the team at Scorpion my bike was recovered and the thief is now behind bars. I cannot thank you enough for what you did that night and am forever in your debt.
Mr R Sterland / Northamptonshire
- Having had other tracking devices fitted on previous bikes, the TrakKING system is, I believe the standard bearer for all tracking systems. I was notified by Datatool immediately and the Datatool control staff dealt with every aspect of the recovery. They spoke to the police, told them the location of the bike and kept me informed of the progress. The bike was then found in the back of a stolen transit. Datatool staff had done their job superbly! I would highly recommend Datatool TrakKING to anyone who loves their vehicle.

When do my texts renew?
Each ‘pre alert’ text is renewed 30 days after use. For example if one text is used on 1st July, that one text will be replenished on 31st July. A text used on 2nd July will be replenished on 1st August and so on hence you have 5 texts available every 30 days rather than 5 texts every calendar month.
Why isn’t the map location correct?
The TrakKING dashboard map display the last known, confirmed as accurate location and this is updated every time the ignition is switched off after the vehicle has been used. It may be that the last time the ignition was switched off, the GPS location wasn’t highly accurate and therefore the system has disregarded this location data. Once the ignition has been on for more than 3 minutes the unit should update the location accurately. In the event of a theft the unit switches to alert mode that sends location data every 20 seconds and therefore will provide our operating centre staff with highly accurate, current location data.
How does Keyguard work?
Keyguard is designed to provide an additional layer of protection, sending a text message to notify the vehicle has been started and ridden using the keys. Keyguard is an optional service and once subscribed to, can be armed and disarmed via the TrakKING dashboard. Keyguard is intended to protect against ‘theft with keys’. It is easier for criminals to steal the keys than it is for them to overcome the increasingly sophisticated security systems so ‘theft with keys’ is becoming a far more common occurrence. View more…
Can I buy a TrakKING unit and fit it myself?

Why don’t my insurance company recognise TrakKING as an approved device?

Not all insurers give discounts for tracking products and on some brokers systems tracking products are not listed with alarms but as ‘Other security’. It could also be the insurer has TrakKING listed as Scorpion ST61 or Datatool ST61 which are part numbers rather than the product name.
