Ventura’s Evo Bike Pack System is now available for the Moto Guzzi V85 TT – offering owners serious carrying capability, without compromising the Guzzi adventurer’s retro lines.
Refined over the past 40 years, the Evo Bike Pack System combines the best elements of hard and soft luggage to offer lightweight, stable and versatile carrying capability. The system uses three elements:
- Discreet L-Brackets, which are tailor made for each machine and attach to existing mounting points – no drilling;
- An Evo Rack, which slots into the L-Brackets, offering a stable and secure platform for the luggage;
- The Evo Pack, that simply slides onto the Rack and clips into place – no keys to lose and no fiddly straps or cords.
This unique mounting system means the load won’t shift, even during hard riding. It’s also quick and simple to attach and detach the Packs at stops; they’re also much easier to handle off the bike than heavy, bulky hard cases.
When luggage isn’t needed, the Pack can be removed in seconds, leaving only the discrete Rack in place. There is also an option to replace the Rack with a Grab Handle, which takes seconds to swap over.
When riding solo, the pack is carried directly behind the rider, close to the bike’s centre of gravity, and can be re-positioned behind the pillion seat when a passenger is onboard. Both opti
ons carry the pack well clear of exhausts and the rear wheel.
Unlike panniers, the system doesn’t add excess width to the bike, so it’s great for tackling tight trails and filtering through traffic.
Packs come in four sizes: the 10-litre Evo-10 day pack, the 22-litre Evo-22 (great for a weekend away), as well as the 40-litre Evo-40 and Evo-60 Jet stream, both ideal for longer trips.
A typical system for the V85 TT – consisting of the L-Brackets, Evo Rack, and an Evo-22 Jet Stream Pack – costs £380.10 (including VAT); significantly less than metal panniers.
