Bulk Buy Time! Xena Disc Lock Alarm - Xn15

The Xena XN-15

6_1.jpg

With a new bike on the way I've been looking at some extra security. Seeing as some of us have bought or are buying new bikes soon, I'd like to see if I can get a group buy happening. I called up Panda Rider, who are distributors for Xena Alarms here in Thailand. They agreed that if I can get enough people together, we might get a special group discount. Otherwise, if the numbers aren't enough it'll just be a 10% discount through their membership card (they make you one after you purchase something over the value of 2,000B) That makes the XN15 4,400B per person.

Here are the Xena alarms they have at Panda Rider.

Here is a video on the alarm:

Here is the offical site for Xena alarms

Anyone interested? The package comes with everything stated on the Xena site:

* 1 XENA Disc-Lock

* 1 XBP-1 Battery Pack

* 3 Keys, 1 metal key code tag

* 1 Pouch

* 1 Allen Key

Post here :o

So the device has no keyfob, so how do you disarm it ?? Is it just got a short delay and you need to key it fast ??

It says it has an auto-disarm, so I'm guessing you put the key in and disarm it while it's doing the initial warning 'beep'. It probably won't go off when you put the key in, but it might if you grab it to turn the key.

I don't to rain on your parade. but a separate alarm and disc lock would be a similar price. BUT if you have more than one bike this would be excellent.

I seem to remember that one of the decent motorcycle alarms is made here in Thailand. but at the moment can't find the details.

Fair enough if it's good, but I took a liking to the disc alarm because it's hassle-free. If you're out somewhere and something goes wrong, you're going to have to dive into the wiring and/or bring it back to the automotive electrician.

On their website 4,400 Baht is the normal price.

Have you been to the shop? Do these guys carry any stock?

I'm fed up with calling and asking if "such and such in this size is in stock" and travel a few hundred clicks only to find they have been lying.

Yea I called them up and they said the normal price was 4,900B. The price on the website is off. They don't have any in stock (the XN-15 was the only one I asked about) but it will be in early Feb. I can call them to ask about other models if people are interested, since the important part is the distance between the edge of the bike's brake disc and a spot you can pass the locking pin through.

With the sort of numbers I'm seeing at the moment it will likely be a 10% discount. I'll probably end up buying the first one to open the membership discount up for the other forum members who want one...

Hmmm. 'Alarm bells are ringing, Willie.'

Appears to me to be the old 'bait and switch' technique. Raise the price to 4,900 to give the 10% discount after advertising a lower price so people feel they're getting a bargain when in fact 4,400 was the real price all along. Either that or a special price for 'farang'.  :o

If they know the price on the website is "off", then why hasn't it been corrected? Something fishy, here.

Kinda what I was thinking too.. Its kind of amazing that the 'sale price' is exactly the same as the website price..

Nice I guess but what do you do with it once its unlocked ?? Just seems another thing to carry about, would prefer a built in alarm I reckon.

i'm interested....but have a question for anyone who knows the product; the alarm sounds when the lock is tampered with correct? no motion or anything like that? the reason i ask, style of bike theft here (albeit rare) is to just lift the bike into a pick up truck. thieves probably wouldn't even notice the lock until they got it back to their evil lair :o

but, any deterrent is good i guess.

Ok I called for more details. Yes, the price is according to the website. That makes the price 10% less what's on the page I linked. I'll edit the OP to reflect this.

They will have all models in stock around the 2nd Sunday in Feb. They're waiting a new shipment.

Livin, yea you have to carry that thing around with you :o The pouch has a belt buckle so you can strap it to whatever you may have handy, or you may be lucky and have enough room under your seat for it.

Anthony, the lock detects motion. So if the lock's on the bike and the bike gets moved the alarm sounds.

Edit: Hmm, ok I can't edit the first post anymore.

The price we can get is 10% off the listed price. That makes the XN-15 3,690B. Of course, you should have a look at the dimensions on your brake disc before deciding on a particular disc lock.

Reckon the alarm is more so to warn you that you have forgotten the disc lock, while trying to ride off into the sunset!

As I have done so many times myself. I no longer use it.

Question. Does this disc lock also come with a cord that attaches to the handlebar of your bike as a reminder that you have a lock on the disc?

OK.. It is kind of appealing.. One thing I couldnt work out.. The alarm goes off when moved ?? So does it go off as you unlock / disarm ??

Mates used to put a big padlock through the brake disc, but this is much smarter..

Battery use ?? Looked like a recharge tye ?? what does it take, how do you keep it powered, how do you know when power is low ??

The lock takes 6 LR44 1.5V Alkaline batteries. They claim about 8 months usage time. If the battery runs out it's still a disc lock. There's no reminder cord, but I saw that for sale as a separate accessory on another site. So far we got 5 interested :o

I am interested but only with the cord! I am a bit forgetful and leaving the lock on while driving off may cause severe damage and accidents.

Sorry to be a know-all but I think that the alarm will sound as soon as you move the bike upright and/or bring up the kick stand. Check out the videos on YouTube. Edited by RusticCharm
