Suzuki V-Strom DL650 and 1000 Luggage Rack

Superb versatility and notorious reliability have made Suzuki’s popular V-Strom a mainstay in adventure touring motorcycles since its introduction in 2002.

Adventure touring motorcycle outfitter AltRider is adding luggage racks to its roster of accessories for the Suzuki V-Strom 650 and 1000.

3/16” anodized aluminum and AltRider’s unique side flange design create a robust yet lightweight rack that weighs in at under 3 pounds.

The new AltRider luggage racks utilize the high-quality materials and manufacturing methods the American manufacturer is known for, with a tailored fit for the popular Suzuki models.

The addition of the luggage rack for the V-Strom 650 and 1000 came after numerous fans and customers requested the accessories. AltRider’s current line of Suzuki parts includes crash bars and skid plates, but its luggage rack was one of the most asked-for items.

“One of the first bikes we made parts for was the V-Strom 4 years ago” Nancy Yun, Marketing Manager for AltRider, said. “As riders ourselves, we listen to what other riders want which is why we’re adding accessories for the V-Strom, years later.”

Laser-cut from 3/16 inch thick anodized aluminum, the V-Strom rack is designed to withstand heavy use and features side flanges for extra strength – ideal for both on and off-road treks.

The smart rack incorporates features precisely engineered to accentuate the style and functionality of the Strom. The versatile design is compatible with RotopaX fuel packs, RAM mounts and Givi Top Cases (requires mounting kit). Deliberately placed cutouts ensure any hook can pass completely through the mounting point, and CNC-routering ensures smooth edges and a refined finish.

Like all AltRider accessories, the luggage rack is designed and manufactured in the USA.
