Storage space is a rare commodity on a motorbike or scooter and yet it always needs securing against theft and unauthorized use. Which is the best sort of lock for a motorcyclist to carry for normal use? Brake disc locks are a practical solution for many motorbikes. They are very compact, light and thus easy to transport. If your vehicle is to be parked for a long time in a place where there is a high risk of theft, combining the lock with a chain is recommended to prevent the motorbike from being carried away.
Your motorcycle is too valuable to leave unattended and unprotected. The ABUS GRANIT Detecto X-Plus 8008 is state-of-the-art security and as beautiful as the machine you drive. This compact yet powerful lock is incredibly easy to use but houses a high-tech 3D alarm sensor technology wrapped within a brick of steel.
You've heard the horror stories about the competitor's alarm locks - alarms going off when they get wet or the cat passes by; having to wear ear plugs to replace the battery. Not so with the ABUS disk locks. The 8008 uses an automatic brake disc recognition system - meaning that the alarm will not arm unless it is mounted onto the brake disc itself. You can carry this lock in your pocket or bag and it will not arm or sound. It comes with a compact carrying case for easy transport on the bike.
The alarm relies on ABUS's 3D motion detection technology - once armed and on the brake disc it will detect any motion. A warming will sound before the alarm fully sounds - perfect if you've parked your bike and forgotten your alarm is still on the disc! When you (or a thief) stand your bike up while the alarm is armed it will sound a warning giving you time to unlock it before it fully sounds. Every movement is detected - whether the thief tries striking or attacking the lock - or simply tries to lift your bike into a truck and the alarm reaches at least 100dbB when it sounds fully.

The bolt and supporting elements of the locking mechanism are all made of special temper hardened steel.
