New to the Ventura range is the Astro Top-Box, a hard luggage top box with a 32 liter capacity that comes with a mounting plate and universal fitting kit.
The mounting plate that is supplied with the top box mounts to the Top-Box Rack (which you will need to purchase separately) using the four M6 Allen head bolts, spring washers and flat washers that are supplied.
The Astro comes with a universal fitting kit so that it can mount to other racks. This mounting plate comes with a cover (not shown here) which fits over the cross hatch area.
Because of the way it is designed the rack can be fitted facing forward when riding solo or to the rear with a pillion.
Normally you would open the box from the rear as that is where the reflectors are. If you then turned the rack so it was facing forward it would necessitate turning the mounting plate on the rack. However there is no reason, other than personal preference, to which way it opens.
- a versatile opening and detaching system that can be operated even when wearing gloves
- reflective panels for increased rear visibility
- keyed access to the box.
