Recommendation needed on disc lock

I have settled on a 620 Monster and would rather I be riding it than a thief, so I need a recommendation on a disc lock.

I have read a good things regarding the Xena brand and was wondering if any current 620 owners are familiar with the most recent offerings. In particular, I am looking at the Xena XX15, XX14 and the XN series. My questions are which ones fit best and are the most secure?

Thanks y'all!

Make sure you understand that a disk lock, even the best of them, WILL NOT keep your bike from being stolen. It will only sound the alarm and keep someone from rolling the locked wheel.

Most bike thefts are extremely quick smash-and-grabs. They back up a truck, lift the bike in whole, slam the tailgate and peel off. If you're intending on leaving the bike outside (esp apartments) make sure you have some sort of cable lock on the bike also.

Nothing's fool-proof, but the more stuff you put in their way of making a quick getaway helps.

XX15 it is! Thanks y'all. I'm familiar with the risk of bike theft. I may opt for other devices beyond the disc lock, but at this point it will be behind a locked gate in a residential community.
