Xena XX-10 Disc Lock with Alarm
Good, but with its issues…
I spent a little time looking for a disc lock for my motorcycle, and the criteria was this: 1) don't be hideous 2) have an alarm. The Xena series fit the bill. The XX-10 does its job at locking my bike down while not looking like a monster (though I hear some people prefer big bulky locks to scare away possible thieves), however, the alarm system is at-best subpar. My first received item had to be returned because the alarm wouldn't sit in the alarm properly, and my second, well…it keeps getting triggered and going off unnecessarily at times, and not going off when it's supposed to. I ended up removing the alarm completely, and just using the lock as a lock, despite the alarm being deceptively loud. Would I recommend this? Sure, maybe you'll have more luck than me.
TL;DR: Decent lock, alarm is iffy at best.

A must have for all bike owners
Easy to install and use. Simplicity at its finest.

It worked perfectly when I first bought it. Very heavy duty. Although after awhile, the alarm started going off all the time at random times when it was even being moved or touched. It got a little annoying and discouraged me from using it very often - but it was indeed very loud. It started to rust a little too after it had gotten wet a few times.

I park my baby outside and wanted to make sure she was well protected. After doing some research online and watching the video on Revzilla I decided this was the best method.
I love it, easy to put on and to take out! Does what it is supposed to do.

Works great, confirmed it stopped my bike getting stolen
So apparently I have confirmation that this lock prevented two guys from stealing my bike the other day. Had a lovely chat with my neighbor this morning who informed me that the alarm going off scared them away: http://youtu.be/ujUVUXAJG10
The only gripe I have with this lock is that sometimes it can be too sensitive to motion in certain positions on the disc (I keep it at 11 o'clock usually). But I'd rather it be too sensitive than not sensitive enough.
However, it's definitely possible to be cut off, since the NYPD illegally towed my vehicle a few weeks back and cut it off (mildly damaging my brake disc in the process), but I imagine it would require power tools and plenty of time. I would highly recommend this lock. Bought another one after the NYPD destroyed my old one.

A very nice add deterrent!
Very sold lock, nice piece of mind when you just don't want to leave your bike's safety up to the steering lock mechanism only. The "alarm" feature is great, really sensitive and responsive. The lock is super easy to install and remove.

Does just what its supposed to do!
This item lives up to the promise of its manufacturers. I have found it to be sensitive but not too sensitive. I can use it on either the front or back wheel (I have a 2015 triumph thruxton). I've had the alarm for a couple of weeks and its gone off twice. Both times, my neighbors cat was trying to get on the top of the cover and set off the alarm. Other than that, not a peep. I'm really pleased with the functionality and quality of the lock and its brought me peace of mind.

PIECE OF GARBAGE!!!
Just bought a used 2007 Suzuki GSX-R750 and wanted to do all I can to deter would be thieves. Saw mixed reviews of the Xena disc lock. Took the chance and bought it. Have used it for 3 days. First 2 days seemed great. Day 3 = useless. It was fine until I left work. Put it in the storage compartment and it went off the whole time I was riding. Didn't matter if I had the lock up or down. Went to a friends house and almost couldn't even use it because it wouldn't stop going off. Finally got it to stop and secured my bike. Came out 3 hours later and people said it had been going off the whole time. And it continued to go off for the 30+ minute ride home. Got home and couldn't get it to stop going off. Took the battery out. Now I have hundred dollar disc lock that doesn't do what it's advertised to do. Would have been better off using the traditional disc lock and saving my money. Totally DO NOT recommend this product.
