Back in May 2016, we were contacted by Christopher Cork (owner of Unit 31 fabrications, Aurora UK dealer) with a request to make a navigation tower for his 950 Rally Bike. Christopher is no stranger to us, he has participated in many rallies and has five podiums in the Twin Cylinder class:

  • 2015 Hellas Rally – 2nd place
  • 2016 Tuareg Rallye – 3rd place
  • 2017 Tuareg Rallye – 1st place
  • 2017 Morocco Desert Challenge – 1st place
  • 2018 Sahari Rally (Algeria) – 2nd place

He is one of a kind, one that likes big bikes, so he is the perfect rider to develop such a kit. Fast forward a couple of months and we developed the navigation tower with Christopher while he developed the side panels and, of course most of the parts on his bike are custom. 

So… Why are we here? Because we tested the kit (well, Christopher did…), we installed it on the 9x0RR #1 bike and we are now able to offer this kit to you.
The kit includes:

Do you lose functionality? Well, for starters we must remember that this kit started in the rally field. But don’t be afraid, people keep arguing that a rally bike is not a traveler’s bike and vice versa. We tend to disagree. A rally rider needs to have a light bike, one that can be serviced easily, a bike that can be ‘undressed’ with ease. Same goes for a traveler if you think about it. You need the bike to be light and agile, so you can control it easier and to add more luggage yet need to service it with ease and have reliable, proofed parts even when you are in the middle of nowhere. If there is a challenge on the road, you need to fix it as soon as possible and continue your journey to your destination. So, in effect, the needs are almost the same.
