ABUS For The Urban Rider

Summer is freedom – it’s time to roll out the motorcycle and ride. Most people do not think about the ‘what if’ scenario of motorcycle theft.   Many times cyclists do not lock up the bike or may have a sub-standard lock that is more of a visual aid then a functional and protective one.  ABUS is a German lock manufacturer that dates back 85 years, is family owned and designs and manufactures all products out of their own production facility.

The days of leaving your moto unlocked are over – thieves roll up with van, pick up the bike and take it to a chop shop.  Luckily for the urban rider there is ABUS – a family owned German business that dates back to 1924 and has been delivering quality product since day one. According to August Bremicker founder of ABUS stated since day one, ““Security needs quality” – more then 85 years later ABUS is still determined by that credo as well as incorporates all R&D and production within their own production facilities.

The Granit Victory X-Plus 68 packs a lot of security into its small shape and when attached to the 12KS Loop chain your security becomes even more formidable.   The Victory’s unique security innovation lies in its round shape and three independently rotating pieces that make it almost impossible to attack with tools. Secure the Victory 69 on the brake disc and use the loop chain to lock your bike to a fixed object such as an ABUS floor anchor or solid post for very secure locking.
