WHETHER YOU CALL them ‘retros’, ‘modern classics’ or ‘naked’ bikes, one area in which riders have not been best served is the provision of decent on-bike luggage.
Craven have plugged this hole with the launch of the new Meteor pannier system.
Meteor panniers have been designed specially to accommodate the high-rise silencers used on the new ‘classics’ like the Royal Enfield Interceptor.
The Meteor is made to sit high enough to avoid fouling the silencer, but narrow enough to avoid spoiling the lines of the bike and making sure there is still enough room for a pillion.
In order to maintain the capacity of a standard pannier, the Meteor has been made deeper horizontally, giving a clean finish with the same storage space.
Big enough for a full-face crash helmet, fitting kits will be available to suit many machines with upswept silencers.
Initially just black or white versions will be available, but Craven are confident they can create Meteors to match most Interceptor colour schemes.
