Kawasaki Versys 650cc (2017)
When I was preparing my bike for touring I searched the internet for accessories suitable for the make/model. I found the following;
SW-Motech had most of the accessories I needed to prepare my bike for touring.
SW-Motech accessories are awesome, great style, build quality, specific to the make/model of the bike.
The list is below is I’ve purchased so far…as you can see SW-Motech make some good accessories for touring bikes.
So what did I put on the bike?
- Quick Evo Lock – Side Carrier Frame – KFT.08.518.20000/B
- Alu-Rack Black Top Case Pate – GPT.08.518.15000/B
- Side Stand Foot Plate – STS.08.518.10000
- Quick Evo Lock GPS Mount – GPS.08.646.10700/B
- Navi Case Pro Large (GPS Case) – GPS.00.009.10000
- Quick Lock Luggage Rack (Black) – GPT.00.152.43001/B
- Double USB Port with Cable Harness – EMA.00.107.11300
After some research into various options for carrying equipment/luggage system, I’d need for touring. I decided against hard cases. 1) Because of the aesthetics (look/styling) 2) The need to the keep the weight to a minimum 3) Have you seen Mosko Moto stuff. It’s a cross between hardcore military spec equipment, functionality, and top quality rugged adventure gear. I would recommend going to their website to read about their story, mission statement.
Anyway, the only downside for going with soft luggage is probably security. But hey I think I’ve solved that problem by purchasing the SteelCore locking system (below). I’m never that far away from my bike anyway and at a push, I will always keep the essentials/valuables with me. By the way, I am not trying to sell Mosko Moto gear, but I do feel the need to promote their products as it is top quality “Fit for Purpose” gear.
