Xena XX-14 Disc Lock with Alarm
Easy to clip on to the disc of my Ducati 848. Very durable and has a loud alarm that goes off if it is moved

Great Bang for the Buck
For the money, it works great, its loud. The sensitivity isn't over powered, it won't go off randomly. Its automatic arming is a nice function. I wouldn't consider it the best anti-theft device on the market, however for the price it is great. I use mine daily, and have gotten someone to set it off while I'm in my house to test its function, I can hear it very well. Very happy with it.

Good if you have controlled expectations
Pros: It's not as sensitive as a lot of people say. It will rarely go off on its own (from my experience after using it daily for about 2 months). It will go off though if your bike is moved in the slightest (sometimes as much as setting my helmet on the seat was enough to set it off). This is behavior that I think is good, since I definitely want to scare off anyone trying to get to my bike. I definitely, at this point, don't think anyone will be able to get it off of the bike without the key. It's easy to get on and off, and easy to store, which makes it great for daily use.
Cons: It is slightly rusting in the tumbler area (it has been out in rainstorms and pretty extreme heat). There is also a small plate inside of the lock area towards the large side of the lock that is coming off. I'm not too sure of how to get it to stay, but occasionally it gets in the way of me putting the lock on the bike. This is remedied by just pushing the plate back into place, but still is annoyance nonetheless. I have had two different times where the bike has not been locked onto the disc brake, but still locked (I lock it when I store it in my tail storage area) and it has gone off. This is behavior that shouldn't happen. The lock itself should only be armed if there is metal in the lock area when the lock is set. It continued a long loud screech until I stopped, got off my bike, unlocked it and relocked it. At this point it was fine again.
Summary: Overall a very easy daily use lock for when I leave it outside at work or run into a store or food place or something. Some issues here and there, but that is expected with any product.

not a great product
This product does not work with my bike, I have an 04 GSXR 1000. It will not lock no matter what I try. I wouldn't recommend it.

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.

The product it's perfect, but it's too big to keep in my bike. I need a backpack.

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.
