Just So You Know

Published on December 10th, 2014 | by Boris


Anyone who’s ridden a few kilometres in their lives will know that Ventura makes some of the best luggage-carrying systems on earth.

This is a bonus for those of us who need to take everything we own whenever we travel, or when transporting a lady-friend who requires her hair-care products, dryer, make-up kit, bondage gear and several pairs of shoes to be available because she needs to be prepared for all eventualities.

Likewise, massive amounts of beer and ice can be transported from the bottle-shop to your rental accommodation in stye and because you’re the only one who has a Gearsack on the back of your bike and drew the short straw.

Yamaha’s magnificent new MT-07 can now hold its pretty head up and also feel the love from Ventura. The bike’s been on-sale for like ten minutes, and those clever goblins have already created enough luggage options for it to keep even the most OCD bastard happy.

To wit:

Suzuka 35-litreTouring Kit – $359

Rally-Euro 44-56-litre Touring Kit – $399

Bora 31-litre Touring Kit – $399

Mistral 47-litre Touring Kit – $459

All of the options come with a mounting kit and are available from your favourite motorcycle retail outlet. Or they bloody well should be. If they’re not, let the good folks at Kenma know and they will sort it for you.

Oh, and by the way, there are also hard top-boxes available that range in price from $99 to $339 and can be retro-fitted to the existing Ventura luggage systems, which is pretty cool.
