Tyco BMW has reported thefts of their four race bikes from a Birmingham hotel close to the National Exhibition Centre in England. The bikes were stolen from one of its transporters which were parked outside the hotel.
It is believed that the theft happened between 10:30 pm on Sunday 27th November and 6:30 am Monday 28th November. It has been reported that the race machines were taken away in a white Ford Transit van.
Philip Neill, Team Manager of Tyco BMW said, "We put our heart and soul into motorcycle racing and these bikes have real sentimental value.
"For this to happen is just devastating, especially as the bikes were only at Motorcycle Live so that race fans could see them up close and personal."
