Discrete, lightweight and with fuss-free fitting, the Ventura Bike Pack System is ideal for street-styled bikes like Yamaha’s MT-09. Minimalist machines offer little concession to carrying luggage; often with compact seats, and no secure strapping points. The stripped-down look also doesn’t lend itself to bulky, hard luggage.
The Ventura system consists of three easy-to-fit elements: L-Brackets, Rack and Pack. Bolt the L-brackets to the bike’s existing mounting points, slide the Pack Rack on, then clip your chosen Pack in place. Job done. It adds no extra width to the bike, is much lighter than hard cases and has far less of an impact on handling and performance.
When riding solo, the pack sits over the pillion seat keeping the weight closer to the bike’s centre of gravity, for a stable ride. When carrying a passenger simply flip the bag round, so it sits on the rack. There’s no need for unreliable and potentially paintwork damaging straps/bungee chords, as the QL clips hold the Pack firmly in place, and the system is quick and easy to detach; both the Pack and Rack can be removed in seconds, leaving only the discrete L-Brackets – and the bike’s lean look – behind.
