SW-Motech Bags Connection Units

Wanted to keep this thread alive as I am very interested in TT's bags (especially the new ones that mount on a "stick") and the development of or retro fit to the new 2013 STR!

Waiting with much interest

I spent a bit of time at the TT booth yesterday at the show - saw the Trax bags mounted on (I think) a Tiger with the SW quick-release rack.

Very nice.

I virtually built up my bike in the Triumph website's configuratorthingiemabob yesterday. One item I found interesting was the passenger grab handles. They appear to mount to a fairly accessible and obviously fairly solid point on the subframe.



It would seem this could serve as an excellent upper mounting point for a pannier bracket, or - dare I say it? - design panniers that use the grab handles themselves as an upper mount. I'm no designer, or engineer, but it seems to me it might be possible to make a bracket with both upper and lower bag supports that attach with just two bolts on either side. It would probably be too much to ask that a luggage rack could be incorporated into this, as well, but if Triumph thinks the mounting points are strong enough to support significant amounts of the weight of a pillion, I wouldn't think a few pounds of luggage would over stress them.

Twisted Throttle? Are you out there?

Whoa, that's big news.

I spent a lot of time looking and touching under the tail of the St3 at the show and never saw where these would mount. Pretty interesting!

We're here. Now that we have the Blaze Saddlebag System there seems to be little call for the a true set of side carriers for a bike such as the S3. The average Street Triple rider (ie: almost all) will choose the Blaze bags over the full-framed side carrier every time. The R&D and tool costs can be better spent on the Blaze system.

There will be a Blaze system for the 2013 Street Triple. In all likelihood there will not be a set of side carriers for this bike.

When you say there will be a Blaze system, would that system be redesigned to bring the bars a little closer to the bike? Since the exhaust cans are gone, they wouldn't require as much stand-off. Also, if the bars are closer, the bags could be widened just a bit to increase storage while maintaining the same overall width. I know the Blaze bags are expandable, but more width in unexpanded mode might be very welcome.

Sorry, I know I'm acting like a 5 year old at Christmas, but you know what they say about the difference between men and boys.

Syssie: It's very possible those mounting points are concealed by the under tray, which might require removal, drilling, or an entirely different piece to expose them for the grab bar mounts. I'll take a very hard looksie for them, when I go to the DC show.

Kevin: Hope to see you, or at least the TT display in DC 6 Jan!

If space allows we will always go tight to the bike. The bags will not be changing any time soon though.

As of right now I won't be at the DC show but Twisted Throttle will for sure. Look for us in the Marketplace which is usually in the center of the show.

I guess you have to give a little to get a little. Sounds good.

I remember where TT was on the floor last year. I spent quite a bit of time wandering around.

Excellent Kevin!
Glad to hear and see you are on this. IMO the Blaze is the best thing since...well you get the idea. I like being able to rid the bike of the racks (in 2 seconds) when not needing them. They are so well thought out and well designed. I know for other guys wanting to go for weeks and months at a time something bigger might suit them but I can't imagine needing more than a tank bag, side bags and top bag for a few weeks.

I'm sure Triumph will have a new undertail piece to accomodate what ever needs to be bolted under there or at least "markings" on the underside for drilling to accept what ever could use those mounting points. On Triumphs "configuratorthingiemajob" they show side bags and bet 2 bits to a donut that's where the racks will mount.

I'm glad there is interest. I will be sure to post it here when they become available.
