2013 Zx6r Stolen at Cityplace Toronto Condo Garage

To begin with, I purchased the bike (2013 model Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R 636 ABS Green, VIN: JKBZXJF18DA00052) from a private seller in Sep 2014. Since then, Iíve been putting the bike with a black cover on top, on my condoís parking spot in P3 (at Cityplace Toronto) I was not intending to ride it until next season; therefore I only registered the title at MTO without putting a plate or insurance on it. I have also another bike that Iím currently riding and was going to sell (a Ninja 300 parked on P1 level).

On Monday Oct 20, in the morning, when I was going to drive my car to work at around 9:00am, I found the ZX6R parked behind my car was completely gone! Even the bike cover and a black bike stand, which was sitting beside my bike with Kawasaki stickers on.

I instantly told the concierge and filed a police report. I demanded for the video tape from the building management, and was told that the theft happened during midnight on Sunday, Oct 19. At the same time, I found out there was another gentleman and his girlfriend in my building who also lost their Yamaha R6 on that night. There were some footprints on my parking because of the dirt on my parking spot. I informed the Toronto Police Communications that my parking will be washed on Thursday Oct 23rd so the evidence will not be present anymore, but they said they will not be going to take pictures on those. So I took some.

About two months ago, Iíve noticed some strange things; actually itís been about 5 times since I noticed one or two full or half-emptied Kirkland branded water bottles putting on my parking spot either on the ground, or on top of the concrete wall. I usually throw them away but on the next day or several days after, they appeared again. I did not take it seriously but until today, I found out there was the exact same branded bottle been putting on my Ninja 300 on P1. I think it might or could be some kind of marks by the thieves.

It was rather unfortunate that my new bike didnít have insurance or a GPS tracker device. Otherwise my loss would be possibly kept at minimum. Now, Police is my only hope to get my beloved new bike back. I was told by the Toronto Police Communications (when I made more than 6 calls to them) that the video tape I requested were picked up by Toronto Police at around 11pm on Monday, Oct 20, and itís been almost a week past. On thursday, 14 division constable officer who handles my case called me, told me that he would be on vacation through the week and would follow up with me on next thursday. I asked if the case could be transfered or assigned to someone else, but he said basically there're 20 motorcycles stolen in my area so they have people working on it.

I just hope, if anyone have any information regarding the stolen bikes could let me know on this forum. And for safty reason I already moved my Ninja 300 to a secured location.

Sry to hear about your bike. My 2012 gsxr 750 was just stolen 2 days ago :/

If you can't get it going with bungee cords and electrician's tape, it's serious

If no garage, the bike comes in the living room. Lost a bike to thieves, never again if I can help it.

Yeah if I ever lived in an apartment or condo, I'd make sure it was the first floor, and the bike most definitely would be coming in with me.

I hope you find your ride.

Living room. Every night.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. Comprehensive insurance in cheap compared to collision and is mandatory as far as I am concerned if you park your bike out of sight often.

Sorry to hear about the loss but as mentioned above, fire and theft is cheap insurance. Next time call and get that on the bike as soon as possible. Hopefully the thieves are caught. Motorcycles are so much more personal than a car to many owners and I'm sure those thieving bastards know it!

Thank you for your support guys. Also really sorry for those who have lost their babies, I feel your pain. This is indeed a hard learnt lesson for me of not getting insurance. I'm also thinking about selling my condo and buying a house since I'm no longer feeling safe living there like once was. Actually before all happened, I was talking to my gf about moving the bike to my living room but she had problem with it due to the chunk space the bike would need. Nontheless, I'm thinking of moving on as even if I get lucky and they find it somewhere, my bike would have already been taken apart. This is cold and hard I know.

Sorry to hear this for sure .. I've never lived in a condo . But I would be paranoid all the time if my bike was in a condo garage ... My bike is in my garage and I still worry ..

How has everything been .. Have the police figured anything out . Or have you receive an insurance settlement . . . ?

Just went through this two months ago. My brand new two month old bike was stolen from my driveway before the title even came in the mail. I hope you find it but knowing how mine went, the cops won't be much help.

It's been more than a month passed, I have called and emailed to the police numerous times, but there's nothing they could do until now. I went to the police station myself and saw the footages, basically there were 20 cameras in the garage but surprisingly none of them picked up the plate number of the suspect vehicle (a van with tinted windows) or the faces of the criminals. I'm not sure at this point, if I could still get it back, as the chances are slim. I had no insurance when it happened so the loss is mine. I'm still keeping my Ninja 300, and I really don't want to give up riding, but this definitely makes me worry about lossing my bike again.

Same here, from what I experienced, the police are lazy. I made complaint to the division where my case was handled since they assigned it to a rather irresponsible officer. Since then they have transfered my case to a detective and I think he's quite nice and also a rider himself so he knows how much it meant to me. Anyways, I wish you best of luck and let's hope good things could happen!

These threads kill me to read. I'm very sorry to hear about your loss (I have a 13 and would be crushed), but did you really plan to leave your bike sitting uninsured in a public parking lot all winter long? Given the fact that a motorcycle can be lifted into a van by a few guys in 10 seconds, leaving it in an apartment parking lot every night is basically asking thieves to take it.
