Owners of the latest generation Yamaha MT-09 can set up for summer touring in one easy step, with the Ventura Evo Luggage system.
Originally developed for sports bike riders, who wanted luggage that was light, stable and wouldn’t upset handling, Ventura has proved ideal for carrying kit on naked street bikes like the MT-09, with minimalist rear-ends
Ventura’s Evo System is made up of just three elements:
- Discreet L-Brackets – tailor made for the MT-09 and which attach to existing mounts;
- An Evo Rack – offering a stable and secure platform for the luggage;
- The Evo Pack – which simply slides on and clips in place.
Unlike soft luggage, the Pack won’t move around – even when riding hard – thanks to the ‘sleeve-fitting’ system. It is quick and easy to remove and remount the Pack too.
When riding solo, the Pack is carried directly behind the rider and close to the bike’s centre of gravity, helping to keep the motorcycle well balanced. When a passenger is on board, it can be re-positioned behind the pillion seat in seconds.
Both options carry the load well clear of the MT’s rear wheel and unlike panniers there’s no extra width added to the bike – leaving the rider free to filter and enabling easy access to tight parking spots.
When luggage isn’t needed, the Pack and Rack can be removed in seconds, leaving only the L-brackets in place and the MT’s clean lines uncluttered. There’s also the option to replace the Rack with a Grab Handle.
Packs come in various sizes, from the handy 12-litre Evo-12 to the massive 60-litre Evo-60 Jet Stream. Each one is made from water-resistant and durable laminated ballistic fabric, with wide openings for quick and easy access to contents, aerodynamic shaping to cheat the wind and much more.
A typical system for the MT-09 (2021 on), with L-Brackets, Evo-Rack and the Evo-22 Pack (pictured), costs £393.06 including VAT. The optional Grab Handle is just £22.80 including VAT.
