I am ready to fit a Scorpio alarm to my Turismo.
Concern the unit will either drain the battery or damage the wiring harness and result in one expensive repair.

Any comments? has anyone fitted an alarm - good or bad results?

You do realise the bike has an immobiliser fitted as standard? I would be reluctant to go chopping into the loom tbh. Better getting some extra physical security imho.

I thought chopping into the loom invalidated the warranty anyway ?

All aftermarket alarms I've seen fitted appear to be just a pia

I only ever fitted an alarm to one of my bikes, funnily (or not) that was the only one of my bikes I've had stolen!

Unless your insurance insist on it they are a waste of money, cost a fortune to buy and fit, probably save you maybe £10 per year on your insurance premium and so you'll have to own the bike for like 30-40 years to get your money back on it, well that is the score in my case?

And then if your away from home your going to have to hook the thing up to a battery tender to stop it draining your battery overnight, MV batteries are small enough as it is without the extra drain of an alarm on it too?

Cutting the loom does invalidate the warranty.
