Yamaha Giving Away DNA For Free


In a bold anti-theft initiative, Yamaha Motor Australia is currently supplying all motorcycles, scooters and ATVs with DataDotDNA theft protection.

DataDotDNA is a unique system consisting of tiny microdots bearing identifying code numbers. These dots have been sprayed onto all Yamahas since February this year, enabling units and their component parts to be easily identified.

The owner, police or insurance companies can cross reference the PIN number on the microdot of any stolen unit with the VIN number of that unit. Warning decals alerting potential thieves that the unit is 'Protected by DataDotDNA' completes the protection picture.

"This anti-theft initiative offers every Yamaha customer a very real benefit," says YMA Director and General Manager Steven Cotterell. "No one wants their pride and joy stolen and the DataDotDNA system is an effective deterrent that highlights Yamaha's customer focused approach."

YMA covers the cost for DataDotDNA, and each set of dots is valued at $199.95

Currently, the recovery rate of stolen motorcycles varies from 11 to 29 per cent depending on brand, according to the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council (NMVTRC).
