MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A Miami man is offering a $5000 reward for information leading to the recovery of his stolen Ducati motorcycle valued at more than $60,000.
The owner said a 2019 Ducati Panigale V4 R was stolen from the 4th floor of the parking garage at the 1800 Club, located at 1800 N. Bayshore Dr. in Miami on Dec. 28 at 9:10 p.m.
According to the owner, once the thieves gained access to the parking garage, they cut the Kryptonite heavy duty chain and deactivated the Ducati Performance anti-theft alarm and the installed GPS tracking system.
Surveillance images show the burglars loaded the bike inside a maroon-colored Dodge minivan with stolen license plates.
Earlier this week, several bikes were stolen from Two Wheels World Ducati in Pompano Beach. A year ago, video surveillance cameras captured burglars, driving a van with stolen plates, as they stole a $20,000 Ducati motorcycle from the Southgate Towers in Miami.
Investigators believe the theft may be part of a larger crime ring targeting expensive high-powered motorcycles, according to the owner.
