Abus Detecto 7000 RS 1 Alarm Disc Lock
Great option for a disc lock.
I wish Revzilla still had the video review up for this lock. I've got several friends who use the Xena any they all seem to complain that the lock is almost impossible to transport without it going off in a pocked or saddlebag. With the Abus, it will never go off when it's not attached to the bike, which was a huge draw for me. It does seem to be a bit sensitive, I haven't been able to remove it without it going off briefly, but I'd rather it be too sensitive than not sensitive enough.

Much beefier than I was expecting.
This lock is much more solid than i was expecting. Being able to put on the lock without the key is a very nice feature. My only disappointment is Ithought it would be louder,it will defiantly get people's attention but it's not super loud.
As always Revzilla was great. I received the item in no time at all.

Works great, ugly design
My last bike was stolen. I'm parking my new bike under the same conditions as the stolen one, except that now I use this lock. The bike is still there, so I'd like to think that it has served at least a little bit as a deterrent.
Some people complain that it doesn't come with a lanyard to remind you that the lock is there. It would be nice, but I don't think this is essential. I've forgotten to take it off, but the alarm turns on a few seconds after I've started the motorcycle. It's loud enough for me to hear over the sound of the exhaust with my helmet on. Thanks to this I've never come even close to taking off with the lock in place.
This is my review after 4 months:
- Fits under the rear seat of my Ninja ZX-6R
- No false alarms so far
- Looks unbreakable
- Simple to use
- Haven't had to replace the battery
- Ugly graphics, makes it look like a toy
- Could be louder
- When trying to disarm, if you don't get the key in perfectly and turn it quickly, you will get 100dB in your ear.

The alarm is only actuated if someone yanks on the lock. The actual sound of the alarm is very quiet and muffled. Does not come with a reminder lanyard to give you a visual cue not to attempt to pull off and damage your rotors.
The lock is bulky and heavy, so I usually don't commute with it.
Overall would not recommend and would look for another option in disc locks.

very good disc lock,good build quality and easy to setup.the alarm is loud enough to make thieves hesitate but not loud enough like car alarms.overall I love it.I would add a 2 way pager alarm to your bike if your serious about anti thief.

This thing is loud
I park my bike on the street all the time. This lock keeps the baddies at bay. If the bike is stood up or rolled, the alarm sounds.
And it is pretty.
