Watch: scooter gang steals £28,000 Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon from London dealership

IF you wanted evidence London motorcycle crime is out of control, you couldn't find better than this.

A London motorcycle dealership is offering a £5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of a super-exclusive Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon stolen by a gang who smashed through the showroom doors at around midnight on July 18.

The machine is a limited edition of the already exclusive Ninja H2. It's one of only 120 produced worldwide, and only six in the UK, costing £27,999 each.

A video shared by Daytona Motorcycles shows a gang member wheeling out two scooters - presumably to get access to more desirable machines - and tossing them on their side outside the showroom. 

One member then emerges on a £4,399 Suziki GSX250R GP.

Amid shouts of "Hurry up", three gang members next push out the Ninja H2 Carbon.

One of them shouts what sounds like "Heavy bike".

Two members then jump on the stolen machines while others, riding scooters, push them along the road.

The gang also stole a number Arai helmets worth £500 each.

Police later found the GSX250R abonded nearby.

The dealership shared the video on Facebook with the message: 'Kawasaki H2 CARBON stolen around midnight 18/07/17. This is a different view from outside. Any information leading to the recovery of the H2 will be rewarded and appreciated. As you can hear in this video the shop was alarmed. The shutters were bypassed from a box outside. We believe it is still in the London area. Any information however little would help. Thank you.'

Daytona salesman Bill Rayment told Visordown the reward was £5,000, adding: "They also took around five Arai helmets worth around £500 each.

"The GSX250R was discovered nearby."

A Met Police spokesman said: "Two motorcycles and other items were stolen. One was found abandoned nearby.

"The suspects made off in the direction of Victoria Road. There have been no arrests, and enquiries are ongoing."

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, tweet @MetCC or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
