I've read that a disc lock makes it easier to pick up the bike, so I never bothered.
I know when I read ads for bikes for sale I immediately bail when the ad says "no title, can't be bothered to get one" and those are almost always dirtbikes and sportbikes.I would hate to have my motorcycle stolen. Do motorcycle thieves steal SV's? Don't they discriminate and want to steal something of more value like an Aprilia, Ducati, MV Agusta, brand new GSXR or R1?
It would break my heart if my gen 2 sv650 got stolen.
I read that if your bike is customized it is less likely to get stolen. If it looks stock it is more likely to get stolen. The reasoning behind this is because if its stock, they are able to resell the bike, and get their money, whereas if it is a customized motorcycle, it is harder to sell and it is easier to spot as a stolen motorcycle. Just a thought.
