Innovative motorcycle security from KOVIX

Kovix motorcycle security products are now available to UK riders, offering a wide choice of anti-theft devices to suit all situations, from a mini disc lock costing just £19.99 to an alarmed chain lock at £124.99.

For more than a decade, Kovix has designed and manufactured a wide range of intelligent security products in its own factory, which are now being officially distributed in the UK for the first time by The Key Collection, making them available from dealers nationwide, with full spares and technical support.

The range covers all the popular styles of bike lock – disc locks, chain locks and U-locks – and many are available with built-in alarms.

Kovix alarms are unique, with innovative features specifically designed for motorcycle use;

  • Piercing 120db alarm siren – louder than a chainsaw or rock concert – with automatic re-set
  • Fully weatherproof module, which can be removed and replaced by the owner
  • Option to turn the alarm function on or off, to suit the circumstances
  • Long life lithium battery

Kovix also produce a range of practical accessories, including 1.5M cables with an adapter that attaches to their disc locks (£34.99), lock holders, so that disc locks can be carried on the bike while riding between stops (£12.99) and disc lock reminders (£4.99).

Retail prices for alarmed disc locks start at £59.99 for the KD6, (pictured above), which has a steel body and 6mm locking pin.

Alarmed chain lock prices begin at £74.99 for the KCL8-120, which features an ultra-strong lock unit that is welded to the 1.2M chain.

Some products in the range, like the KBL16 alarmed padlock (£94.99), are so tough that they are tested and certified to Classe SRA, the French security standard that is required by insurers in that country.

All Kovix locks come with numbered keys, which can be replaced by most key-cutters using a unique code, without needing to copy the original.

Autumn Gremlins Sorted

Gear Gremlin has a selection of add-ons to keep both bikes and riders in peak condition over the autumn/winter months.

Classic Neon Cover – If a motorcycle or scooter is parked outside overnight, covering it is a must. A quality, well-fitted and properly specified cover will offer protection from rain, frost, snow, dust, spray from passing vehicles, bird droppings and UV exposure, not to mention prying eyes – the police advise owners to cover their machines if possible.

The Classic Neon Cover is made from a waterproof, soft and durable fabric, with elastic hems for a secure fit and reinforced side cut-outs so that a security chain can be passed through. The top portion of the cover is neon yellow, for added visibility in low light.

The Classic comes in three sizes, is washable and comes with a handy storage bag; find out more

12V Intelligent Charger – Battery care is also crucial during colder periods, when low temperatures cause the power output from the battery to drop, as the chemical reaction that generates electrons to supply the current proceeds more slowly.

Gear Gremlin’s 12V Intelligent Charger is a microprocessor-based battery charger and maintainer, suitable for all 12V gel and lead acid batteries, from 2.3Ah – 120Ah capacities. Fully automated, the Intelligent Charger adjusts the current according to the battery’s capacity rating and can diagnose – and attempt to recover – a sulphated battery. It will also check for and indicate a weak or damaged battery.

Its built-in automatic voltage management system cuts charging when the battery is fully charged, and the charger also features protection from polarity reverse, short circuit, over temperature, over current and over voltage, for complete safety and peace of mind. Find out more

HEATED GRIPS FHG2 – Designed to provide continual, controllable warmth, heated grips reduce the need for bulky, insulated gloves and enable riders to select the ideal temperature to keep hands functioning comfortably – crucial for autumn/winter riding, where conditions require careful operation of the throttle, clutch and front brake.

Each Gear Gremlin heated grip set comes complete with a combined on/off and temperature control switch, which is easily operated with gloved hands, and can be handlebar or bodywork mounted for quick operation. There are two temperature settings so riders can tailor the heat level to the conditions.

The premium-quality FHG2 grips are designed to provide a confident hold and comfort, and are manufactured from anti-split and anti-perish rubber. Find out more
