I need rear rack

Looking for a rear rack for my 2010 KTM 690R that the manufacturer also sells a soft bag that locks in place. Don't want a hard case. Is there such a brand?

rack

too pizza delivery for me.. looking for something sleek. Guess there is no such thing. Probably just run the OEM rack and use whatever bag, Kreiga or Wolfman type stuff.

No help on the rack but for a soft bag, I have been using the the Moose Racing adventure rear bag for a little over a year and for my needs it's perfect... locks to the rack (I fabbed my own, but it also worked on the OE rack) via locking buckles. I also cable lock the zipper pulls closed and the bag to the bike when leaving it in less observable areas like the parking deck at the office.

racks seem to be getting harder to find as manufacturers whittle away at rear sub frame structure. Loss of weight is a good thing, but loss of utility....not so much.

Already contacted them. They don't make one that fits the 2010 KTM 690.

Not sure on the KTM 690 (don't see it listed on the twisted throttle site), but check out the SW-Motech Dakar Waterproof soft saddlebags. They don't lock (as in with a key), but they snap directly to the carrier more like a removable hard bag.

I have no experience with them, I just saw them in the TT catalog.

Locks like bolted or removable like a givi?

I've seen them all and not finding what I want. I'll probably end up with either SW-Mototech or Wolfman rear rack? My set up is looking like soft saddle bag system without paniers, and a large duffel on top for long trips and just use a tank bag and a small bag on the rack for weekend trips.
