The BMW K 1200 RS was parked outside the owner's house in the town of Sovetsk when it was stolen in early May, Interfax reported citing a regional police spokesman.

After a search lasting a little more than two weeks, the motorcycle was found in a local garage, a police spokesman was quoted as saying.

Police are continuing to investigate the case, Interfax reported.
