KTM RoadLoK - anyone got one?

KTM and RoadLok have just announced a version of this disk lock for the 1190 Adventure.



http://www.roadlok.com/KTM.html

Has anyone tried the product, (its been available for the 990 for some time) and if so, is it an effective theft deterrent? How long would it take to drill the pin out or drill the lock, assuming you lost the key .... ?

It's a good idea, but won't stop the scum from lifting your bike into the back of a van.

I've never seen anything like it before, not sure if anything is on the backside of the disk, but it looks a lot easier to remove the 2 allen head bolts and remove devise then drill anything out.

The allen keys are just to stop the front turning at all, even if you remove them it still behaves like a conventional disc lock.

hey, that's a pretty cool idea. That said, it seems like most bike thefts involve lifting the bike up into another vehicle, so I don't know how effective a disc lock would really be. Plus, I think I'd forget about it all the time...

Looks like it would be annoying to get the locking pin lined up with a hole in the disk - given that it's in a fixed position - you'd have to jiggle the bike back and forth, or put it on the center stand. Also adds un-sprung weight to the wheel.
Other than that - looks like a neat idea. I'll be travelling in Mexico soon, and thinking about some added security.

You don't have to worry about lining up the locking pin, it's spring loaded and pops into place when/if anyone tries moving the 'bike. The locking pin is small and clips to your keyring when not in use.

they do it here with Harley's, so a KTM would be really easy

Still think I'll go with a cable lock - more versatile.

I use the xena disc lock. Similar but with an alarm attached.

These are only deterrents as has been said but if you park next to another bike without a lock then you should be fine
