AltRider Ducati Multistrada 1200 Luggage Rack
Great piece of kit
I bought this to strap an Oxford X30 soft tank / tail pack onto for a 5-day, 3,000km ride, as I had previously found it difficult to swing my leg over the Oxford when I used to strap it to the pillion seat.
The rack looked like quality straight out of the box, was a 2-minute job to put a drop of threadlocker on each of the 4 screws and attach it, and the job was done.
The rack suits the bike, has a plethora of points you can use as tie down points, and it looks like it will last until the end of time. I'm not a fan of octopus straps with hooks, so I used my rack with Andy Strapz Flat Strapz - which made it a 30-second job to put the Oxford Bag on and off each morning and afternoon, and to quickly secure a base layer when the temperature rose without unpacking a bag to make room.
The rack performed as advertised - it was flat, secure, stable, and had heaps of configurations with its multiple tie-down points.
I decided to leave the rack on when I got home, as it looks like it's meant to be on there; even though I probably won't use it for another few months. Highly recommended.

Amazing style and functionality
This was by far one of the easiest installs I've ever done. No problems. One thing to improve is to include the torque values for the fasteners. Otherwise it was simple and quick.

It's a piece of metal.
This rack will give you a little more flat space and tie down spots on your Multi. It installs very easily. I managed to scuff it a few times during my last adventure, which is a little disheartening considering I used plastic-buckle tie downs, but it still served its purpose.

Great product, but overpriced
Super easy install since it's only four bolts on the MTS 1200. Very sturdy and plenty of areas to strap to if you're using a soft bag or strapping down a drybag. I'm using it to mount the OEM topcase. For what it is though (a CNC cut piece of aluminum, with two bends and powder coated) it's way overpriced. I looked at having a friend simply machine me one with all the steps for half the price, but he was simply too busy. No reason this needs to be more than $75 if any small shop can do them one-off for less than that even.

This rack took minutes to install and looks much better than the OEM rack for the Ducati Topcase. Plus with its flat surface and multiple attachment points you can easily mount an aftermarket small tailbag when necessary. I also bought the kit to mount the Ducati Topcase to this rack. Works great!

A must have
When i purchased this item, I did not have high expectations for this item; however, it is one of the best racks I have purchase for any of my bikes.

Simple install, laser cut quality
Installing this took longer to read the instructions than it did to actually fit it to the bike. Simple, clean install and looks excellent when complete. I opted to add a rack that I could strap any bag to for whatever I needed that day. It feels solid and integrates very nicely to the factory mounts.
