New Zealand luggage specialists Ventura have developed a Bike-Pack system to fit Honda’s affordable new CB500F and CBR500R models. Whether fitted to the naked CB500F or sporty CBR500R, Ventura’s unique ‘slide on/ride off’ luggage mounting system combines the best features of hard and soft luggage, without affecting the machine’s handling and performance.
Light, stable and incredibly versatile, the Ventura Bike-Pack luggage system consists of three, easy to fit elements: L-Brackets, Rack and Pack. The L-brackets are securely fitted to the bike using existing mounting points (the pillion footrests hangers and grab handle mounts). The Pack Rack slides into the brackets and is secured by two locking devices. Then Ventura’s specially designed soft luggage packs slide onto the rack, held firmly in place by QL clips.
Lighter than hard luggage and more stable than soft luggage (without the need for unreliable and potentially damaging straps/bungees), Ventura Bike Pack Systems provide huge carrying capability, allow a pillion to be carried in comfort and are quick and easy to remove and replace at any point, making them ideally suited to middleweight bikes like the CB series.
A complete system for the CB500F or CBR500R, including L-Brackets, Pack Rack and 47-litre Mistral Pack (as pictured), costs £341- including VAT. For further details and a full list of fitments and pack options, call 01256 704909 or visit www.ventura-bike.co.uk.
