The SW-MOTECH ALU-RACK is a clean looking, stand-alone base system that allows Quick-Release fitment of TraX, Givi and other Topcases, SW-MOTECH luggage racks, or SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection Quick-Lock Tankbags to keep your motorcycle as versatile as you are.
ALU-RACK Topracks are a sturdy and elegant solution for mounting your topcase. Constructed from high-strength, lightweight aluminum for durability, they are bike-specific and shaped to accentuate the lines of your motorcycle. Three mounting points for Quick-Lock fasteners in the center of the ALU-RACK allow attachment of removable adapters to fit most Topcases, an SW-MOTECH Quick-Release Soft Luggage Carrier, or an SW-MOTECH ALU-RACK QUICK-LOCK Tankring for fitting flat-bottom SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection Tankbags such as the QUICK-LOCK EVO Sport Tankbag or the QUICK-LOCK EVO Daypack Tankbag.
Adapter plates are available to fit the following Topcases
- Givi Monolock
- Givi Monokey
- TraX ALU-BOX
- Shad SH26, SH29, SH32, SH33, SH37, SH40, SH42, SH45 & SH46 (not SH48, SH49 or SH50)

Not sure if you've decided on a top rack yet, so here are a few photos of my new SW-Motech "Alu-Rack" from Twisted Throttle. I'm really pleased with the build quality and fit. You can use the rack on its own, or with an adapter plate built specifically for different types of hard luggage such as Givi, Krauser, etc. I purchased this to replace my Givi top rack. I was happy with the Givi rack, but it was not compatible with any side-case carriers on the market. The SW-Motech Alu-Rack is compatible with SW-Motech Quick-Lock sidecase carriers, so I can now fit hard Givi saddlebags on my bike as well.
There is about 1" of clearance between the rack and the tail section of the bike.
No soft-luggage for me. It takes approx. 10 seconds to put the SW-MOTECH adapter plate and Givi top-case on the Alu-Rack. I'll never go back to soft-luggage, mainly because I like being able to lock up my stuff (jacket, gloves, helmet). The hard-luggage also stays put, rather than blowing around in the wind or shifting during hard riding.
Installation wasn't hard at all. Took about 20-30 minutes.
