One of the aspects we take into account when buying a motorcycle is without doubt its appearance. This is also the case when we buy a helmet or a jacket. So why does a disc lock have to be ugly and have no style? Isn’t it possible to have a product which is not only secure but also attractive to look at? This was the idea which guided the design of the new Viro Shark and White Shark disc locks.
A shark as an anti-theft device
As the name suggests, the shape of the Viro Shark disc lock resembles that of a shark which, once installed, bites the disc of our motorcycle. It’s a design which is not only pleasing to the eye, but also effective, since its rounded shape makes it difficult to grasp the disc lock with burglary tools or strike it with a hammer. The design makes the Viro Shark disc lock instantly recognisable as a high quality product which is difficult to attack. The Shark is equipped with a 5.5 mm diameter hardened steel lock-bolt, which, unlike common disc locks, has one end T-shaped, which, by turning the key, is anchored at the base of the body, thereby protecting the disc lock from attempts to break it at the slot.
The Viro Shark disc lock can be made even more pleasing to look at with a customised print on the body. Here the only limit is one’s imagination: in addition to the shark proposed as standard, it is possible to print: the dealer’s logo, a slogan, a flag or anything else you can think of. You can also create customised sets of just a few copies by contacting the Viro 2Ruote division.
The one-piece steel version: the top model
The “White Shark” version is available for those who want maximum security; this has a larger body (10×8 cm) and is made in one piece from case-hardened, tempered, copper, nickel and chrome-plated steel. In this version, the diameter of the lock-bolt is increased to 10mm, whilst maintaining the characteristic T-shape end which blocks the lock-bolt to the body when the disc lock is closed, thus achieving an extraordinary strength and resistance.
The level of excellence of the product is reflected by the quality of the accessories included as standard:
- 3 keys, one of which has a handy light to illuminate the lock when it is necessary to operate the disc lock in conditions of poor visibility;
- The possibility of storing the disc lock, when not in use, with one of the keys always kept conveniently inside the body itself, in a compartment protected by a practical sliding lid;
- a sturdy nylon carrying case which allows you to carry the disc lock comfortably and without ruining the paintwork on the parts of the bike with which it may come into contact;
- a reminder cable to be connected to the handlebars to remind you to remove the disc lock before driving off, to avoid falling off and damage to the bike.
The Viro Shark disc locks, especially the one piece White Shark version, combine security with an original and attractive appearance, bringing together excellent engineering and beauty, just like the most successful motorcycles.
