MetaSystem has been awarded the worldwide contract to supply Benelli with their insurance-approved alarms and immobilisers.

And it's likely that Benelli's new Tornado Tre 900 - which already comes with a pre-wired loom for direct connection to the MetaSytem e587T-B immobiliser - will come with the MC1 Thatcham-accredited system installed as standard in the future.

The partnership has come about following a successful pilot scheme in the UK and Italy that saw 71% of UK buyers opt to have the insurance-approved system installed.

Ricky Ross, aftersales manager of UK Benelli distributors Three Cross Motorcycles said: "We are delighted to be teaming up with MetaSystem to boost the Tornado OS programme with their proven anti-theft device."

Mike Hemmings, MetaSystem Group's UK Managing director added: "We look forward to forging as strong partnership with Benelli and to providing its dealer network with a superior quality, easy-to-fit solution that offers customers the added benefit of insurance discounts."
