March 2018 – German motorcycle engineers SW-Motech now produce their innovative Blaze panniers to fit Kawasaki’s latest Z650 super naked bike AND, by working closely with UK importer Motohaus, they cost 15% less than before.
Blaze Panniers differ from traditional throw-over saddlebags thanks to the addition of a clever ‘Quick-Lock’ mounting rail, which clamps to the footrest hanger on either side of the bike. The bags slide onto the rails, keeping them stable, secure and away from moving parts, without the need for additional straps or bungees.
The rails are light and can be removed in seconds, when not in use, leaving only the discreet clamps behind.
The panniers are made from tough 1680 Ballistic-Nylon, with a stiff construction that helps maintain their shape, and a user-friendly top opening. Each bag has a 14-litre capacity, which can be increased to 21-litres by opening the compression zip, to provide a total carrying capacity of 42-litres (per pair).
Waterproof inner bags are supplied with the panniers, for easy packing and complete confidence, whatever the weather.
Blaze pannier kits are available to fit a wide selection of motorcycles and retail prices have recently been reduced to £250- including VAT (previously £293.75).
For extra carrying capacity, Blaze panniers can be used in conjunction with SW-Motech tail bags, like the Jet Pack (RRP £182.52), pictured.
