The Honda CB1000R, KTM 990 Supermoto and Suzuki M90 Boulevard are all very different machines, but all share one problem: lack of carrying capacity. Ventura has solved the problem, by offering a versatile luggage system for all three.

Ventura Aerodynamic Bike-Packs offer masses of carrying capacity in a light and stable package. Whilst adding minimal weight, the tailor made rack system carries the luggage clear of high level exhausts and ensures that the load will not shift under even hard riding. Positioning of the pack offers excellent stability and as it is positioned directly behind the rider there is much greater manoeuvrability in traffic and less wind resistance on the open road, compared to traditional pannier systems.

Fitting is hassle-free because Ventura base the system around two discreet L-brackets, which are custom-made for each machine, and fitting the bag couldn't be simpler; when luggage needs to be carried, simply slot the Pack Rack into the L-brackets and then slide the pack of choice onto the rack, creating extra carrying capacity (from 35 to 102 litres, depending on pack/combination).

The systems pictured feature L-brackets (£97.75), Pack-Rack (£46.24) and 51-litre capacity Spada Pack, (black, red or blue at £99.20). Total cost = £243.19. If no luggage is required, the Pack and Rack can be removed in less than a minute and replaced with a Grab Handle (£19.99) or Sport Rack (£40.73), leaving the bike uncluttered.
