Ventura has introduced several new luggage systems that are ideal for the latest generation of sports bikes with high level exhausts. New models covered include the Kawasaki ZX-6R (2007) and Yamaha R1 (2007), both of which have under seat systems that make carrying traditional throw-over panniers impractical. Even adventure sports machines, like the Triumph Tiger 1050, and exotic sports models such as the MV Agusta F4 1000R, are catered for.

"At 180 mph I didn't even know it was there"
Ventura uses a frame-mounted slip-on luggage system that is custom-made for a hassle free and perfect fit. It is well suited to high performance machines because it is aerodynamic and does not add to the width of the motorcycle. When riding solo, the pack sits over the pillion seat so that it does not affect the handling or stability of the bike, (Ventura has been independently tested at over 180mph). When riding two-up it is turned around, over the rack, leaving the pillion with the maximum amount of space (unlike panniers). If no luggage is required, the Pack and Rack can be replaced in seconds with a Grab Handle or Sport Rack.

Ventura packs are produced in 35, 45 and 55 litre sizes, which is comparable to most soft luggage panniers and larger tail packs. It is also possible to zip together two 45 litre Spada packs to give a massive 90-litre carrying capacity.

Uniquely flexible soft luggage system custom-made for over 1,100 motorcycles
The systems pictured feature L-brackets, Pack-Rack and 45-litre capacity Spada Pack, (in black, red or blue), giving a total cost of £216.97. The Sport Rack costs £36.99 and the Grab Handle is £19.99.
