We designed VERY DIFFERENT pannier racks for the KTM 690 Adventure (2019). Because only few riders ride with a passenger, we decided to somewhat ignore 2UP riding and moved the panniers racks more towards front of the bike and also lower compared with traditional designs. This made them as narrow as possible – look at the rear photo in our gallery below.
This significantly improves the centre of gravity and makes the handling of the loaded bike much easier. It still allows you to carry a passenger, but their movement and leg space is limited.
