Optimal Ergonomics & replaceable in parts if damaged
The saddlebag rack has been designed to provide a sleek and seamless look without a protruding cross mount. The use of button head screws also prevents damage to the fabric of the saddlebag due to abrasion. The saddlerack also provides the option of replacing only the affected part in case of damage, rather than the entire rack. This not only saves time and cost but also ensures the longevity of the product.
To help ensure the fitting is symmetric while allowing for a balanced weight distribution.
Pillion Friendly and does not obstruct everyday usage
- The design of the stay offers sufficient clearance between grab handle & saddle stay for the pillion to grab on and sit comfortable.
- Plenty of space is provided around the pillion footrest to offer more room for movement making it easier to get on & off the bike.
- The design of the stay allows easy access to the lock for the pillion seat.
The product is designed to provide ample clearance from the exhaust and reduce the possibility of damaging the saddlebags despite the terrain and the riding style.
Designed to accomodate any welding inconsistencies in the bike
The mounting slots are laser cut in a particular shape to accomodate welding inconsistency of the bike.
This helps to correctly align the saddle stay despite any irregularities.
Precision & Consistency
The RE Himalayan's new saddlebag rack is engineered with precision and comes in a premium matte black finish powder coating. Each section and component are expertly crafted using CNC cutting and bending technology, ensuring that every piece is identical and of the highest quality. This manufacturing process guarantees that the rack will fit seamlessly onto the subframe and provide improved stress management and enhanced load-bearing capacity.
This bag has exceeded all my expectations in terms of both style and functionality. First and foremost, the design of this bag is simply stunning. The attention to detail and craftsmanship are evident in every stitch and feature. It has a timeless and elegant look that complements any outfit, whether I'm heading to a business meeting or a casual day out with friends. The black color has a rich, luxurious finish that makes it stand out in a crowd. When it comes to functionality, this bag truly shines. It has ample storage space with multiple compartments and pockets on the left side, allowing me to keep my office belongings organized and easily accessible. The main room is spacious enough to fit my documents and other essentials, making it perfect for daily office purposes. The interior lining is visually pleasing and adds an extra layer of protection to my valuables.
One of my favorite features of this bag is the comfortable and adjustable shoulder strap. It allows for easy customization, ensuring I can wear it comfortably, whether carrying it on my shoulder or across my body. The sturdy and well-padded handles also provide an excellent alternative for carrying. I genuinly appreciate the thoughtful touches.
Since I consider a pillion while going to the office together(my wife), we can both sit comfortably. Though she carries her backpack, I use one saddle bag, and this asymmetrical balance looks perfect, believe me.
The only drawback I found was it could only fit with Viatterra saddle stay since I do long rides with my Himalayan at least twice every six months. I already had a saddle stay and saddle bag with another preferred brand. I only wanted to buy these bags for daily office purposes, but I had no choice other than buying both. This might be a brand strategy, but I appreciate the effort put together since it makes sense. The stay also has a good quality and is aesthetically appealing.
During heavy rain, the cover does not perform well. I faced two time-heavy rain recently. It holds water within the cover. The rain cover must be considered at less rainfall and basic dirt protection.
The perfect daily bag!
The installation is the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. I am super-pleased with this rack, and it is absolutely solid on my 2022 RE Himalayan. I had purchased this in order to support my saddlebags and other items for moto-camping. It did take me a few hours to install, due to minor differences in aligning the holes for the bolts - it was not as easy as the You-tube video made it look! But with some gentle persuasion I could get everything installed correctly, and this rack is very solid. It feels like it's part of the frame.
