Luggage racks and top boxes

The rear rack shipping with the bike is not great. Attaching a roll bag is not obvious: attachment points are not aligned and only on the side… The attachment points are the same as the KTM 1X90, most racks for those bikes should fit on the 790 (warning however: the length of the bolts are different, 1X90 bolts are too long for the 790).

There are two common uses for a rear rack: Attaching a soft bag sideways or lengthwise, or clipping a top box.

With KTM parts the first thing is to get a carrier plate (P/n 60612910044) for £113. And then plonk on it another parts depending on your needs:

Third parties do excellent solutions in this space, simpler and cheaper.
