German engineering specialist SW-Motech has developed a range of lightweight alloy racks for popular street bikes such as the Honda CB1000R, KTM990SM and Triumph Street Triple 675.

Manufactured from lightweight, high strength aluminum, each Alu-Rack is individually designed to perfectly fit the lines of each model while offering maximum strength, ease of use, and fast installation. On some machines, like the KTM, the Alu-Rack bolts directly onto existing mounting points. However, for bikes such as the CB1000R and Street Triple, which have minimal rear sub-frames, SW-Motech include a tailor made frame with the kit.

Once the Alu-Rack is fitted, specially designed adapter plates allow attachment of most popular brands of top case, including the Givi Monokey and Monolock systems. All of the adapter plates can be removed in a matter of seconds by turning the Quick Lock fasteners that secure them to the Alu-Rack.

Retail prices start at £86.93 for the KTM990SM; the CB1000R sells for £115.92 and the Street Triple 675 is £144.91. Adaptor plates for most popular brands of hard luggage (Givi, Kappa, Shad, etc) sell for £24.12.
