Abus Granit Victory X-Plus 68 Chain Lock
Nice but has one flaw
Great theft deterrent, but for my motorcycle, it was loose on disc and left me with feeling it would scratch and maybe lead to warping of disc if someone (ignorant thief) tried yanking on it. Don't get me wrong solid construction but because of disc lock mechanism not having no protective coating left me skeptical of design. fortunately for me Revzilla exchange for another Abus product, their Abus Citychain 1010 Chain lock. Will give rating once I've tested product.

German Quality Shows Through
I was looking for a bike chain for my new BMW F650GS twin for when I am on extended overnight road trips out of town. Normally the bike is kept in my garage in safe suburb. One of biggest concerns with choosing a bike chain was weight and bulk. Revzilla customer service explained the pros/cons of link size, manufacturing process, and the innovate noose design thta cuts the lenght of the chain link by almost half. So, I decided to go with Abus Granit Victory X-Plus 68 Chain Lock. To me 12mm link thickeness seems plenty. I am not expert on how someone would cut through a link this size. But, my understanding is between the ABUS hardend steel and square link design, you would need a lot of strenght with bolt cutters to try to cut through the link. The bonus of the Abus Granit Victory X-Plus 68 Chain Lock is that you get a nice heavy duty disk lock which you can use with the ABUS Granit Vicotry chain or by itself. A good value. The 68 disk chain lock goes for $100 by itself. Same with the Granite chain by itself. I can see how the round disk lock design would make it hard to keep still for cutting. The cover on the chain link is very nice. Not something cheap. Since, I have not had a chance to use the chain in the elements, I gave it a 4 out of 5. The ABUS products cost a little bit more that other comprable chains. But, not being an expert I did not want to take any chance with steel quaility of welded joints.
