The AltRider Luggage Rack for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z is greatly improved over the stock version making it one the first parts you'll want to install on your new adventure bike. Designed strong for on or off road riding adventures, it's made from 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) anodized aluminum and features side flanges for added rigidity and mounting points, as well as a completely redesigned bracket. This design also allow the luggage rack to be run in the low position (with out pillion seat or grab handles). Part of the design was to using the same hardware, so there is nothing to loose.
The AltRider Luggage Rack comes with a mounting bracket, made from 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) aluminum, which replaces the stock plastic mounting bracket and greatly increases the rack's capacity. Between the bracket and rack we created a cubby that is 8.5" X 6" X 3". The cut-out pattern is perfect for creating a door with a bungee cord (ROK straps), making it a perfect glove box to stuff items in without the need to secure them. The rack itself is uniquely designed with a variety of cut-outs, so you can easily attach your bags with anything from straps to bungee cords to tie downs.
If you want the option of using a top case, the AltRider Luggage Rack provides an interface for the Givi Monokey systems, allowing attachment with a mount kit (sold separately) -- no need for the additional cost of an adapter plate.. Carrying additional fuel or water is made easier, too, because the rack was also designed with a Rotopax interface.
The strong and versatile AltRider Luggage Rack for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z is a smart solution for packing up for your next ride, and can be used in either the standard or low position.
