Bikes in Vietnam can now be equipped with a sim-card, which allows bike owners to track the location of their vehicle through an app available on their smartphone.

The innovative system will help combat the theft of motorbikes, which is commonplace in single-party Communist state.

The device, designed by Setech Viet, is physically installed within the bike's interior making it invisible to thieves.

If a bike is stolen, the device calls its owner. The owner can track its precise location using the inbuilt sim-card, which cleverly tracks its location using a combination of GPS coordinates and nearby mobile phone masts.

The app allows owners to remotely trigger the bike's alarm and/or flash its lights. There is even an option to shut the bike down completely, stopping the thief in their tracks.

This ingenious device does not come cheap. At $120 (just over £77), it is one sixth of the cost of the average Vietnamese scooter, which may deter cash-strapped buyers.

But there is no denying that there is a market for this invention. Bikes and moped are the vehicle of choice in the rapidly developing country, as 95 percent of registered vehicles riding on its congested roads are motorbikes or scooters.
