During recent months we have often spoken about the pros and cons of the various types of anti-theft devices for two-wheeled vehicles: disc locks, chains with padlocks, armoured cables, twisted cables, U-locks and electronic devices. But, in short, which anti-theft device should be chosen for a particular application? This week we are providing a convenient summarising table to help you choose.
Of course, this is only a rough indication for guidance purposes, and nothing prohibits you, for example, from protecting a bike with armoured cables or U-locks (but their poor flexibility can be a problem). However, use is definitely not recommended for a motorcycle, especially a top of the range one, of products designed for bicycles and scooters, as the protection offered would be inadequate.
