A visually appealing luggage rack for the KTM 690 that continues the shapes of the trellis frame. Powder coated in the KTM colors orange/black, it blends in perfectly with the vehicle line. The completely stainless steel carrier is not only extremely stable, but also very light (670 grams). During development, care was taken not to unnecessarily increase the well-known low vehicle weight and yet still ensure suitability for travel and everyday use. Mounting on the mounting points of the standard pillion grab handles is quick and easy. The passenger's suitability for pillion rides remains intact when using the luggage rack.
The use of an additional cross brace in front of the fuel tank cap prevents the luggage load from resting on the fuel tank cap. The gapless transition to the seat makes it possible to take along larger pieces of luggage.
The luggage load is carried for the most part by the original fastening points on the rear frame in vertical direction as well as the seat. This means that the threaded inserts on the original plastic rear frame are subjected to much less stress than with comparable products.
If only the area behind the tank cap is loaded, the payload should not exceed 5 kg. If the luggage is loaded continuously up to the seat, higher payloads are possible. In all cases the luggage must be firmly lashed down.
When using quick-release lashing straps, the additional effort required for refuelling is only slightly higher than removing a tank bag.
