motorcycle alarms Buyer’s Guide

If you keep the before points in mind, you can easily go out to the market and buy motorcycle alarms, right? No!

Astra Depot 6mm Lock Alarm

This is one of the cheapest bike lock alarms that I’ve seen. This little guy attaches to your disc brake and will let out a loud alarm if disturbed. Your disc needs to be the right size though – it can’t be more than cm thick and the holes need to be 6mm. Astra Depot says that this is widely compatible though, and will fit bikes of various styles from different manufacturers.

The lock is stainless steel, it’s waterproof, and it costs less than twenty bucks. People who have bought them seem pretty happy and the lock alarm works as advertised. I think the piece of mind you can buy for a twenty and change is definitely worth it.

Artago Secure 24S.6M Alarm Disc Lock

The Artago is a good-looking electronic disc lock with a LOUD alarm of more than 120 dB. It’s not cheap though, so hopefully it makes it worth the price. The 6mm pin diameter means that it will be compatible with all but the weirdest, exotic brake discs.

Powered by an inexpensive CRlithium cell and with IP5water resistance, it seems that at least you won’t have to worry about getting the Artago wet or about finding a battery for it when it runs out.

One neat trick that the Artago has is the inclusion of a light alarm as well. This is especially useful at night when its powerful little light will be clearly visible and a thief will not have the luxury of working under cover of darkness.

It’s a bit pricey, but given the extra light-up functionality, nice design, and two year warranty, it might just be worth it.

XENA XX10-Y

Another rather pricey disc lock; this one bright yellow, which might very well be an additional deterrent. This is a rather hefty lock with a loud 120 dB alarm, using the kind of CRlithium cell you can get from almost any pharmacy.

The barrel is freeze-spray resistant, which is one fast technique that thieves have been using recently. The alarm module is also removable if you just want a lock.

Each lock has a unique key code and the pin has been reinforced with carbide. The only thing that concerns me is the size of the pin, which may be too big for some motorcycles. So be sure to measure the holes on your disc before making a purchase. Otherwise I think this is a great little alarm.

Carchet Scooter Alarm

Well, here we have an alarm that is not also a brake disc lock. This alarm is battery powered, so it doesn’t have to be spliced into your wiring. It costs nine bucks, uses a 9-volt cell, and has a little remote to activate it, just like a car’s alarm. If the bike is moved, a sensor will pick that up and squeal.

Unfortunately it seems to only work now and then, it isn’t waterproof, and basically if you can’t trust it it does nothing for your peace of mind. It’s a nope on this one, I’m afraid.

Make Some Noise

If you aren’t talking about complicated “cut your wires up” alarm systems then one alarm seems pretty much like the next. I still maintain that good quality disc locks with built in alarms are the way to go. If you do want a fancier alarm I suggest you get a professional to do it, especially since it requires messing around with the ignition system’s wiring.

Over the two decades that we’ve been putting together our intensive and independent lock tests we’ve always used a combination of manual and power tools, and force and finesse to try and break locks.

This time we’ve upped our game, significantly, by using the facilities of Germany’s biggest security manufacturer, Abus, and more importantly its state-of-the-art test labs, and training on how to use the machines on offer.

We devised a full-on torture chamber of tests that fully simulate each and every way a lock is attacked and broken. For this we needed multiple models from each manufacturer, so thank you to those who took up the challenge and supplied test samples willingly.

With nine tests on a total of 2different models (2are shown here with seven reviews below), that’s 26separate tests, and a total of in excess of £11,000 worth of locks tested to destruction…

D-locks or U-locks

The D-lock, or U-lock as it is alternatively known, is the classic bike lock. The design consists of a big shackle and toughened crossbar with the lock mechanism built in. It’s been around for years, and it’s really just a supersized padlock. The benefits are the strength for its size and relative portability.

Lock brand ratings are confusing!

All the good brands provide their own rating systems for grading the security of their locks and these are useful for choosing a lock from that one manufacturer.

We can divide chain locks into two broad groups

Portable chains are easy to transport wrapped around your seat post and their relative length means you can secure your bike to a wide range of objects. However these chains will generally be no more than 1mm thick and are not as secure as good U-locks. And they are still much heavier than U-locks.

A super thick, core hardened steel chain with a heavy, top quality lock is perhaps the most secure way to lock your bike. However these chains are so heavy and cumbersome, that they generally work best as a second, stationary lock which you leave wherever your bike is regularly secured for long periods of time.

As with U-locks you should think carefully about what size and thickness you need and how you will carry it about if you need a portable chain.

I have selected and reviewed three great chain locks for you to look at below. And you can read more about the best chain locks here. Or compare the locks in a table of the most popular chain locks here.

Folding Locks

Folding locks are made up of a series of metal plates linked together by rivets. The rivets allow the plates to rotate so they can be folded into a tight package and then folded out to make a stiff shape that you can fasten around your bike.

Kryptonite Rating

Although the shackle is just 1mm thick, it’s made from a special “Max Performance” steel which makes it as strong as Kryptonites other 1mm shackle U-locks.

And this thin shackle means it weighs just 1.8lb (0.8kg) which is about the same as two cans of coke.

While Sold Secure have not yet rated it, Kryptonite give it a 7/which is the same rating as it’s highly regarded (Sold Secure Silver) Evolution range of U-locks.

You can check out how it compares to other small, light U-locks here.

OnGuard Rating

While Sold Secure haven’t tested the Mini, it’s bigger brother gets a very respectable Silver rating and since it has the same 63/100 in house rating from OnGuard, it’s safe to assume it offers the same level of protection.

So, if you’re “Lower Risk” and attracted to the low prices of cable locks, you’ve got no excuse: the OnGuard Bulldog Mini is also really cheap, but will protect you bike much, much better.

Check out how it fares against other mini U-locks here.

Chain lock

Lower risk situations. A cheap, small, lightweight alternative to a cable lock.

U-locks vs Chain locks vs Folding locks

I talk about the pros and cons of U-locks and chains in much more detail in the U-lock vs chain lock page.

But to summarize here: if you’re looking for a lock that you can carry around with you every day, then a U-lock is generally the better choice. U-locks provide the nicest balance between security, practicality and price. So they are usually lighter, cheaper and more secure than portable chains.

Of course, there may be good reasons to choose a chain over a U-lock. For instance, maybe you need the greater locking options that a long chain offers. Or maybe you don’t like the frame mounts that come with U-locks and prefer the ease of wrapping a chain round your seat post. But in most cases, U-locks are the best option for portable security.

If on the other hand you’re looking for a lock that stays in one place, at home or at work, then a big, heavy chain is the better choice. A thick chain with a strong lock provides the highest possible level of security for your bike.

But what about folding locks? Just like U-locks, folding locks are best suited to mobile security. And they address two of the main problems that we can face with U-locks: their limited size and how difficult they can be to carry around on your bike.

Because they are longer and more flexible, you will find more places you can lock you bike up. And because they are so compact when folded up, they are much easier to transport. They also compete well with U-locks in terms of weight.

Abus vs Kryptonite vs OnGuard

Kryptonite also produce high quality locks. While not quite up to the standard of Abus, they make up for this with exceptional customer service. This includes free key and lock replacement in certain circumstances and the best of the anti-theft protection schemes.

OnGuard have had a slightly poorer reputation for both quality and particularly customer service. However, in recent years they have significantly improved the build quality of their locks. And they beat both Abus and Kryptonite in terms of price. OnGuard locks are nearly always the cheapest of any locks at the same level of security.

You might have seen them before, they look like a normal full face lid but you can press a button and pull the front of the helmet up so your face is out in the open. They’re a useful helmet since you can flip them up and go in to the shops without taking it off and because you won’t be going at high speed for long stretches of time e.g the motorway you can have it flipped up while you ride if the weather warms.

Selecting the right shell

When you’re looking at helmets it’s good to keep in mind that although there’s a lot of different graphics to choose from, each manufacturer will only use a few different shells in each style of helmet but this does depend on the size of the brand and what types of helmets they specialize in. Another thing that can help you choose the right helmet for you is the number of shell sizes available in the model you are looking at.

Every size of helmet doesn’t have it’s own shell size with most helmet models having about shell sizes with a smaller on going from XS-M and a slightly bigger shell for sizes L-2XL. We recommend if your head is either an XS or a 2XL helmet size you should go for a model that has atleast shell sizes since this means the overall shell will be closer to the size of your head and not over filled with padding liner to make up for the extra space or liners are minimized for the same reason, which could affect how well the helmet performs in a crash.

Abus Trigger Alarm 34Yellow 40033155974

As you probably already know, a disc lock uses the holes in a motorcycles brake to secure the bike from. The Abus Trigger 34does the same thing but designed perfectly to protect your motorcycle. The lock includes a strong 5mm locking pin to provide extra strength for the lock.

It is easy to use but still has integrated alarm system.

Let’s Lock Things Up

Well there you have it, some of the best motorcycle locks review for any rider to read and pick from. Hopefully this article gave you the best way to lock up a motorcycle and protect your investment. It’s not worth it to risk losing your bike when you can purchase a quality and valuable bike lock. In the end, yes, bike locks are very important, but there is honestly nothing stopping a criminal from stealing your bike.

There is no chain that can’t be broke or no lock that can’t be picked or destroyed. The way you protect your bike is by merely having a quality lock on the bike. By doing this you can increase the time it will take to steal your bike, which then, if it exceeds the criminals expected profits, will keep people away from messing with your bike.

So please, I strongly recommend that you go out and purchase your own personal bike lock, it will help keep your pride and joy is safe while you aren’t around. If you liked our motorcycle disc lock alarm reviews, please share it with your fellow riders as well.

TrackmateGPS HYDRO

The TrackmateGPS HYDRO continuously tracks your motorcycle’s position, but will only transmit this information to the receiver by request. The trackers can then display your motorcycle’s exact geographical coordinates, a speed, violation of set fences, and more.

AES RGT90 GPS Tracker SMS Locator

Still, the AES RGT90 GPS Tracker SMS Locator is the best pre-paid GPS tracker on the market. You get all the information you need when you need it with no hidden additional charges.

Location

Your home address has to be your home address, even if you store your bike at a different address (locked up at your secure office in London). You need to make this clear to your insurer. There are some insurers that won’t even quote for a motorcycle that’s not kept in a secure garage at home overnight, particularly in bigger cities.

Accidents and claims

You must inform your insurer of any accidents or claims you’ve been involved in irrespective of blame or if a claim was made, in any vehicle not just those on your motorcycles. This is one the biggest ways people trip up when finding suitable insurance cover.

Convictions

Questions will always be asked about convictions or bans by your insurer, although any ‘endorsements’ will stay on your licence for a minimum of years it’s still good to disclose to your insurer, insurers should not penalise the policyholder if it has expired.

It is important any conviction not spent is disclosed to your insurer, most insurers will ask about these.

Other Vehicle Insurance

Whether you’re a road warrior seeking adventure or you’re just looking for a way to get around town, there’s nothing quite like driving a motorcycle.

As you would with a car, you’ll need insurance if you want to protect yourself, your passengers and your investment. And just as you’d shop around for auto insurance quotes, you’ll want to find the best insurance for your bike. Here’s NerdWallet’s guide to understanding motorcycle insurance.

Motorcycle insurance requirements

Consider buying extra liability beyond your state’s minimum requirements to protect your assets in case you’re sued over an accident. Minimum liability limits might not be enough to pay your legal costs and claims if you’re sued, and creditors could go after some of your assets. Also, check with your insurance company to be sure your bodily injury liability insurance covers passengers; in some states, you might need passenger liability coverage to insure them.

Motorcycle insurance lay-up periods

Many insurers offer what is called lay-up insurance during winter, when many drivers put their motorcycles away. During the lay-up period, insurance still covers you against theft and other events that can happen while your bike is in storage. Lay-up coverage saves on your annual insurance costs, but keep in mind that if you take the bike out on the road during the lay-up period, insurance won’t cover you in an accident.

How we tested the bike locks

We’ve been breaking locks in our tests for years. We use tools and picks that are easily obtainable, and easily carried, and more importantly reflect what is being used to steal bikes out on the streets.

Occasionally, when we get a lock we have a hunch is a little weak, we’ll have a go with a simple lump hammer first, mostly for the fun of hitting something really hard. We’ve never had good results with cans of compressed air and a hammer, so we no longer bother with that test. The important thing is, our lock test is one of the harshest in the industry that actually reflects the real world. If a lock lasts more than a minute with us, it’s pretty good.

We can divide chain locks into two broad groups

Portable chains are easy to transport wrapped around your seat post and their relative length means you can secure your bike to a wide range of objects. However these chains will generally be no more than 1mm thick and are not as secure as good U-locks. And they are still much heavier than U-locks.

A super thick, core hardened steel chain with a heavy, top quality lock is perhaps the most secure way to lock your bike. However these chains are so heavy and cumbersome, that they generally work best as a second, stationary lock which you leave wherever your bike is regularly secured for long periods of time.

Kryptonite Rating

Although the shackle is just 1mm thick, it’s made from a special “Max Performance” steel which makes it as strong as Kryptonites other 1mm shackle U-locks.

And this thin shackle means it weighs just 1.8lb (0.8kg) which is about the same as two cans of coke.

While Sold Secure have not yet rated it, Kryptonite give it a 7/which is the same rating as it’s highly regarded (Sold Secure Silver) Evolution range of U-locks.

So, if you’re “Lower Risk” and attracted to the low prices of cable locks, you’ve got no excuse: the OnGuard Bulldog Mini is also really cheap, but will protect you bike much, much better.

Lower risk situations. Very easy to use, medium security, reasonably priced and good customer service.

High risk situations. The best all round bicycle lock. Well made and really secure, without being excessively heavy.

Ralph Goodman

Motorcycles are highly susceptible to theft. They are like cars with no doors and no hood. Anyone walking by can get at the engine and the electronics, and once they do, they can drive off. But motorcycle security is also like bicycles security because they can be anchored or lifted away. So security is forced to be a hybrid between the two. The owner of the vehicle must take into account the weaknesses and strengths of their transportation. By finding the security flaws and understanding the criminal’s methods, theft prevention can become a lot easier. When is a motorcycle the least secure, and what can increase that security? Understand why something happens and it can allow you to go beyond the expected lines of defense. Know the danger so that you can better protect yourself.

Five months ago

After our extensive security testing, the Kryptonite Evolution Mini-is our new top pick, as it offered better resistance to bolt cutters than our former pick, the Kryptonite Series We also have a new upgrade pick, the Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Mini, and a heavy-duty chain pick, the Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Chain.

How we tested

For the previous version of this guide, we researched the different rating systems from foundations such as ART and Sold Secure, and we spoke to professional bicycle thieves. Although we learned a lot from that experience, this time we needed to get our hands dirty and see what all these locks were really made of. There is only so much that one can glean from third-party experiences and ratings, and this notion was proven by the many discrepancies we saw this time around between the security of locks rated the same (from the same rating institutions) and our own testing results. In addition, we scoured the Web for every lock review we could, to determine what lock-defeating methods other testers had employed, what locks and lock types were commonly tested, and how they all fared. No single review had tested as many locks in as many ways as we hoped to do, so we knew it would be difficult to make any comparative judgments on the locks we had chosen unless we did all the tests on all the locks ourselves. So we did.

To best test all of our chosen locks, and to feel assured that we were thorough enough to recommend something that would possibly be the only thing standing between a thief and your favorite (or only) ride, we needed to understand the tools available to a bike thief, as well as the pros and cons of using them from the perspective of a criminal. From our experiences working in shops over the years, and interviewing thieves themselves, we created a list of the most common tools that bicycle thieves use to defeat bike locks. This list covered the tools that thieves could effectively use against the assortment of locks we had chosen, and it became the checklist that our group of locks would need to go through in testing.

The tools

Lock picks: These are the smallest, quietest, and most portable tools to carry, but they’re also the ones requiring the most skill to use. Different locks require assorted tools and pose varying degrees of difficulty to pick; however, once a thief has the tools and the proficiency to quickly open a particular lock, it merely becomes a matter of walking the streets and looking through racks of bikes for a target lock they recognize as being easy to open.

Cable cutters: Thieves carry out a large number of bike thefts (possibly most of them) using a simple pair of diagonal wire cutters. These tools are easy to carry in a pocket, quiet, and simple to shoplift if not owned already. Unfortunately, the only reason simple diagonal cutters are so effective is because people continue to lock their bicycles using only a braided steel cable and a padlock, or a basic cable lock, even though such devices provide only the lowest level of security and should be used only as accessory locks in most situations. A good set of bypass cutters can cut these locks in a single pass, and a tiny set of diagonal cutters can do so with multiple snips.

Hacksaw: A hacksaw can be quiet and can work through a nonhardened lock fairly quickly. Most chains from the hardware store, cheap U-locks, and cable locks can be defeated with a hacksaw. The main drawback for a thief is that a hacksaw can be slow on a thicker lock, may catch and bind while trying to cut through a cable, and takes some physical effort to use in general. It is a very cheap tool to come by, though, and an easy one to carry and conceal.

Bolt cutters: Because so many bicycle thefts go unreported, it is difficult to collect accurate data on exactly how many bicycle thefts are committed each year, and especially to know the ways in which all those thefts are carried out. From my experience working in shops over the years, though, I’ve heard hundreds of stories of stolen bikes and seen many cut locks, and most of them (not including snipped cable locks) have been cut with bolt cutters. Bolt cutters can be quite small, usually 1to 2inches long. They’re quick to cut through a lock, cheap, portable, and easy to conceal. They don’t work on every lock, but for the ones they do work on, it’s only a quick snip and a free bike. Once thieves know which locks they can cut with the cutters they are carrying, it is again just a matter of walking the streets looking for a target lock and bike.

Cordless drill: This is a rarer tool for bike thieves, as it works well on only a few types of locks, and most of those are also easier to defeat using other methods, but occasionally drills do see use (most often during an unsuccessful attempt to drill out a lock’s core). The locks that drills do work well on (such as folding locks) have become more popular, though, and the reduction in noise and size over an angle grinder makes a drill a tempting tool for a thief to employ as more folding locks become available.

Angle grinder: A thief with a battery-powered angle grinder will defeat any lock if given enough time. For the thief, the biggest con to the grinder is the noise and sparks it emits as it grinds through hardened steel. In the past, cordless tools didn’t have the power for such uses, but battery technology has advanced enough that they can perform just as well as their corded counterparts, and thus they have changed the landscape of bicycle security. It’s hard not to notice one of these tools, but a thief who can mask the noise and is brazen enough to use one will probably be successful in stealing the bike.

A thief with a battery-powered angle grinder will defeat any lock if given enough time.

Kryptonite New York Standard

If safety is your main concern then look no further than the Kryptonite New York Standard. It is the one we both use to keep our bikes safe in London and has served its purpose time and time again. It comes with sets of keys and a code to register should you lose them all.  The two downsides are the additional weight (1.9kg) and the limited number of objects you can secure it against due to its diameter.

Secondary bike locks

We also recommend that you have a secondary lock. Having two different types of lock means a thief will need different tools to free your bike. It does not make your bike impossible to steal, but chances are there will be a less secure bike nearby. Sad but often true. Secondary locks also mean that you can secure accessories and both wheels, although it is worth considering locking skewers for the wheels as well.

Master Lock 8303DPS Disc Lock Brake Lock

This disc motorcycle lock made by Master Lock is one of the most affordable options on our list. Its sole purpose is to prevent roll away theft that we mentioned earlier. The two-inch throat and quarter inch shackle make it one of the smaller options as well.

This disc motorcycle lock will not fit on some of the larger motorcycle models available today, but would be perfect for individuals with smaller drill holes or smaller disc brakes.

With an easy push-button locking system, this extremely high-security tubular lock will prevent thieves just as well as some of the other options on our list. Painted and coated with a bright orange paint scheme to remind thieves and riders before they attempt to roll down the road. Included with the purchase are a motorcycle handlebar reminder cable and three keys.

Kryptonite 00088Keeper 5s Yellow Disc Lock

The second kryptonite product to make our motorcycle lock list is the Keeper 5s. This extremely bright dual reinforced high-security disc brake will prevent thieves from several hundred feet away. It stands out in the dark like no other.

Equipped with a 5mm pin that fits smaller drill vent holes on a disc brake, this disc lock is perfect for smaller bikes. It also has a smaller neck, so it will limit the list of bikes that this disc lock will fit on.

One of the great features is that his disc lock is also weatherproof and lightweight. You won’t have to worry about the rain damaging this lock, which means that your investment lasts a long time. This model comes in the extremely bright yellow or black option. This disc lock comes included with a handlebar reminder cable and a carrying pouch.

Motorcycle Disc Lock

OnGuard bicycle and motorcycle locks offer ultimate, high, and basic security for students, families, and outdoor enthusiasts.  More Lock.  More Value.  Less Worry.  Offering bicycle and motorcycle u-locks, chains, cables, padlocks, disc locks and locking skewers.

Ride Away Theft

Ride-away theft is one of the more common methods of stealing a motorcycle because it only takes one ambitious criminal.  They walk over to your bike, disable any locks and prevention tools, jump start the engine, and ride away.  Some thieves will work with a partner as a lookout, to avoid complications.  For the most part, however, well-trained individuals can remove security devices quickly enough that it doesn’t look much different than it would if you were doing it properly.

Park in view of a security camera.  This won’t prevent all thefts, as ride away theft tends to look fairly normal (as previously noted).  A hat and sunglasses can disguise a face well enough to avoid identification on a security camera without looking suspicious to others on the street, so you only get so much safety out of this choice.  That said, not all thieves are smart ones and you still improve your odds—especially if the camera is readily visible.

Park in visible areas.  If you can park where you have a line of sight to your bike, that’s ideal.  If someone tries to steal it, you won’t have far to go in order to catch them.  That said, most parking options don’t offer such a convenience.  Nevertheless, parking in an area visible to many people helps as well.  While criminals may utilize exceptional discretion, if another person witnesses a theft in progress you might just gain the help of a fellow citizen and avoid losing your property.

Park behind an obstruction.  Whether it’s a car in a garage or posts on the street, thieves will struggle to steal a bike if it rests in an enclosed space or simply requires effort to access it.  This may be inconvenient for you, but it’s much more inconvenient for the thief.  Like everything else, this method’s added security is surmountable, but at worst it will slow down anyone trying to access your bike.  Every security measure adds a little more time to the clock and time matters greatly when committing a crime.  The more work stealing your motorcycle requires, the less likely a thief will bother trying to steal it.  Furthermore, if they do, you’ll have a greater chance of catching them in the act.

Utilize your motorcycle’s (hidden) kill switch to render the engine inoperable.  Most bikes include one, and nowadays many are hidden due to thieves learning how to deactivate them.  Of course, these same thieves can simply look up your bike’s hidden kill switch location so that only offers so much protection.  If you’re handy, however, you can and make it very unlikely that anyone but you can find it.

Break-Ins

Break-ins account for a fair number of motorcycle thefts as well.  Since those happen on private property, you’ll most likely open yourself up to more risk by assuming your bike is safe because it’s stored inside.  While motorcycle thieves won’t go after a bike they don’t know exists, it isn’t all that hard to figure out where you store yours.  Once they know where you park your bike, the thief only needs to surveil your location and wait until you’re gone to break in to remove your property.

What can you do about this?  Any garage and home security system can help, but don’t forget about all the aforementioned methods for parking in public areas as well.  Any deterrents that help in a public space can, at the very least, slow a thief down.  For example, if you also own a car, you have a built-in obstruction in your garage.  Park your bike behind it.  Don’t avoid using locks either.  The best way to set yourself up for a break-in theft is to assume you’re safe enough.
