The new Defender series of luggage from BUMOT is designed to be the best available to the adventure touring rider. BUMOT luggage is handcrafted in Bulgaria and has quickly become one of the most talked about names in ADV luggage systems. Starting with 2mm aluminum, BUMOT's unique assembly process employs a technique used in the sports car and airline industry to double the bottom edges of the box from 2mm to 4mm. This give the panniers added strength in the most vulnerable bottom edges, as this area takes the brunt of an impact in the event of a drop or fall. The cases are powdercoated inside and out in your choice of silver, gray, or black, and are finished with stainless steel latches with keyed locks (included), zinc passivated friction hinges, and heavy duty weatherstripping for waterproofness. Additional features of the new Defender system include:
- Stainless steel quick release mechanism that allows the case to remove or installed on the rack in seconds
- Low profile polyamide nylon lid strap brackets (tested to 200 pounds each) for better pillion comfort and less square edges if the bike goes over
- 3M reflective logo decals for safety
- A new smooth powdercoat finish
The BUMOT system for the XT1200Z Super Tenere includes the pannier rack, a 41L or 36L left pannier, a 45L or 40L right pannier, pre-installed pannier mounts, pre-installed locks, and all hardware required to mount to the bike. Overall system width is approximately 38" for the 45L / 41L system and approximately 36" for the 40L / 36L system. BUMOT pannier dimensions, (measured at the lid) are as follows (L x H x D):
- 40L / 36L – 17.7” x 16.2” x 9.1”
- 45L / 41L – 17.7” x 16.2” x 10.2”
Please note - if your bike was not originally equipped with OEM panniers and/or does not have reinforcement brackets behind the passenger footpeg brackets (see photo), 20mm spacers may be required for optimal fit. Please click here for an adapter kit.
Numerous options are available to complete your system, including a 3.5L locking toolbox that mounts to the pannier racks, pannier inner bags, and top cases and mounts.
