Street bike luggage is in the bag with SW Motech
The minimalist rear ends seen on the latest generation street bikes seriously limit soft bag mounting possibilities and rarely lend themselves to full hard luggage systems - the often substantial mounting frames ruining the compact lines.
Designed specifically to solve the problem, SW-Motech Urban ABS Bags are made from ‘hard’ ABS material to keep contents better protected than soft luggage, are more compact and lighter than hard panniers - just 1.4kg for the 16.5 litre version - attaching with a keyless push-to-fit system for ease of use.
The cases are made from tough, scratch-proof and easy to clean ABS thermoplastic, and are shaped to follow the lines of the bike, designed not to add excess width, affect aerodynamics or get in the way of the rider or passenger.
Zip entry makes loading and unloading a doddle - no fiddly catches or keys required - and each bag features elastic cross straps, hook and loop lid limiters to keep contents in place whilst riding and when packing/unpacking. Each one is also supplied with a removable waterproof inner bag.
The bags attach to the bike using SW Motech’s discreet SLC Side Carriers. They’re also compact and light, are bike specific and attach using existing points on the sub-frame - no drilling or cutting or additional brackets needed.
Attaching the bags couldn’t be simpler: just push onto the rail until the click is heard. Removal is also super quick, just press the release button and lift the bag off.
Integrated carry handles make life off the bike easy too. Should the rider wish to leave one or both behind, the bags can be locked to the rails using a hidden twist lock inside - again, no keys to worry about. Combination locks are also supplied for securing the entry zippers.
The SW-Motech Urban ABS Bags kit adds a generous 33 litres of carrying capacity, and is supplied with everything needed to get up and running: two Bags, Waterproof Inners, two Combination Locks, SLC Carriers and all fittings and fixings. A typical system retails at £356.99 including VAT.
