After the luggage racks available on the market did not meet our requirements, two of us mechanical engineers, we quickly set up our own 3D construction. The idea is to give our luggage systems a really stable fixation not o have any movement of the luggage while riding offroad. KTK GmbH has the abbility and machine park not only to do the software planing also to produce the first prototypes of the new system.
“You are positively mad!” was the conclusion of one of our fellows as we told him what we had in mind. We started with the idea of an off-road trip to Spain and Romania in 2019, came up with some plans for Morocco and finally agreed that our bikes would not be suitable for a offroad adventure tour. (This is a part of the story other individuals – not riding a motorcycle – cannot transfer). So we had to investigate what would be suitable for trips like that. KTM350: to small tank. R1200GS ADV: to heavy. Wait for the KTM790 Adventure: Expected light – but after presentation at the Eicma: even to heavy.
100% clear: WE NEED NEW LIGHTWEIGHT BIKES WITH MORE THAN 600km RANGE!!!
