Motorcycle SecurityRoadLoK Security, award-winning developer and manufacturer of model-specific locking systems for powersport vehicles, has been contracted to produce co-branded security systems for Aprilia and Moto Guzzi motorcycles, owned by Piaggio & C, SpA.
The Piaggio Group is the largest European manufacturer of two-wheeled motor vehicles and one of the world’s leaders in its sector. The Group is also a major international player in the commercial vehicle market. Aprilia RSV4 and Moto Guzzi Stelvio owners will soon be able to secure their motorcycles with RoadLoK’s patented locking system. Adam Xavier (President of RoadLoK Security) says: "We have been working closely with the Piaggio Group to bring our locking systems into their lineup of Genuine Accessories for several months. Vigorous product testing and aesthetic modifications have been completed to bring Aprilia and Moto Guzzi riders the absolute best in protection for their bikes."The Aprilia RoadLoK will be offered in Stealth Black to blend in with the factory original front braking system while the Moto Guzzi RoadLoK is offered in Ergal Gold to accent the unique design and color choices of the Stelvio motorcycles.Guido Scanagatta (Product Manager for Motorbike Accessories) says: "Piaggio & Co. R&D department carried out, as usual, the most severe tests (including saline corrosion, high mileage component behavior, hard stress on test bench for 100,000 cycles, successive brakes from 300km/h to 0) to ensure the highest quality and reliability of this component and bike while installed, in order to give to its customers the security to buy for their motorcycles the best product currently available on the market." "It was hard and long work but we are very happy to give to our customers another reason to choose Aprilia and Moto Guzzi Genuine Accessories. We would like to thank RoadLoK for the massive effort they made to match all our requests and for the support in developing a dedicated product for Piaggio Group."Each system works the same way to safely protect the bike from being stolen while also protecting the caliper and fender from damage in the case of accidental ride-off. The unique design of both the Aprilia and Moto Guzzi RoadLoK Systems lock the front rotor on the motorcycles without any potential for damage as the lock is permanently mounted to the caliper. Motorcycle performance is unaffected due to the extremely low weight of the locking system.
