Acumen's new Cat 1.1 alarm/immobiliser is small, with three potent internal sirens, and it is totally waterproof for reliability. Acumen are the UK's only independent manufacturer of electronic motorcycle security and their new Cat 1.1 is independently tested by Thatcham* to their Category One standard.

Measuring just 112mm x 56mm x 32mm the Cat 1.1 is the most compact alarm/immobiliser available today, making it simpler to fit on modern motorcycles, where space is at a premium, and trickier for thieves to locate too.

Totally waterproof resin encapsulated electronics and waterproof automotive-specification connectors rated to IP67 ensure reliability whatever the weather. Acumen is the ONLY manufacturer to produce bike alarms to this standard. Meanwhile its class-leading current draw of 1.8mA backed up by Intelligent Battery SenseT (that provides a 3-stage sleep mode based on battery state and time) minimises the impact on the bike's battery.

Three sirens create enough noise to deter the boldest of thieves. The main siren (believed to be the loudest on a Thatcham system) has two back-up sirens, which are located behind a metal armour plate, with their own driver circuit for added security.

Owners can programme the CAT1.1 from the key fob, enabling them to select siren tones, turn on the Nudge Sensor, etc. Suggested retail price for the Acumen Cat 1.1 is £299.99 including professional fitting and VAT.
