KTM powerparts rear bags for 2017 SDR

Post by Kcal » Sat Aug 05, 2017 2:18 am

Part number and shape changed for 2017 and it looks like the bulk of the lower part of the bag angles forward instead of backward. Still says not compatible with EVO Akra system but my question is, why the design change to sweep bags forward if not to clear the exhaust path of the Akra system?

Part number 61612925000

Maybe a silly question, but have you seen a picture of them on the bike? I'm wondering if they just took the marketing photos from the other side?

(Looks like the mounting brackets are different, which would be the main reason for a new part.)

Looks like the same shape, even the contours on the inner side. And you can see the logo on both is on the 'angled' side.
