Ducati Genuine Rear Rack

I have just noticed a new addition to the OEM accessories, it seems a nice option.



I wonder if it can be used in conjuntction with the side mounts (they use the same attachment points) and also, if the holes on the plate are compatible with a Givi top case (I will need to check next time I visit my dealer)

Has anyone tried this one already?

thank you!

First I've seen it, thanks for posting it up. It does look like something made for a top box of some sort.

@pogo67 - I bought and installed that luggage rack and installed it, it works great. To your question, I was concerned also because I ordered the Ducati OEM side bag mounts and they did look like they use the same mounts. The answer is yes they do use the same mounting points.
The GOOD NEWS is that the rear luggage rack has mounting for the side mounts. Look close at the picture and you may see that there are two covers that will pop off and allow you to mount the side mounts.
The site mounts have additional brackets that would mount to the same location as the luggage rack, but you just don't need them if you have the luggage rack.
It works sweet. See my setup photos.
The toughest part is getting at the mounting points under the fender. You have to take the fender and lights off, but don't disconnect completely just carefully balance on the back tire and it is much easier.

Forgot to mention that luggage rack has great attachments underneath so you don't need a top box if you don't want one, you can easily strap other bags/luggage onto the rack. You can put a tail bag on there pretty easily. I got this top box because my wife likes the back rest when she rides with me. I only use the side bags for longer adventures or to haul my laptop to work (small laptop will fit in the left side bag (OEM classic side bags) which is larger than the right side bag (pictured).

@T-Rock thanks a lot, that's a lot of the details I was after, and I even got the the rack mounted on a red Icon, my bike! Definitely more than I hoped

I guess the rack is produced by GiVi (they also do the side racks and bags for Ducati)

Is the the top box a givi one? How does it mount on the plate? do you have any pics of the plate attachments?

Many thanks again

Gianluca

The top box is a cheap one I found on Amazon - Motorcycle Scooter Universal Travel Top Box Luggage Tail Trunk Case - 388 (Black). It will hold 1 helmet.
Don't know if this is available in Italy.
I wasn't sure if I wanted a top box, so I went cheap and honestly was pleasantly surprised. It is a nice box, not fancy or very tough, but it works great & my wife loves it.

Sorry I didn't take photos of the plate attachments for the box. Unfortunately a cheap box doesn't have a good mounting plate or quick release system, but the 4 bolts provided seem to hold it very well.
This top box comes with 2 metal u-shaped bars for stability in the bottom. I think the bolts would pull through the plastic if tightened inside the box. There are multiple pre-drilled holes in the bottom to choose from and I ended up choosing some that required me to drill the luggage rack. It feels solid and so far I haven't had any trouble with it.

Tony @T-Rock thank you! I am sure I will get these details when I visit the Ducati dealer here in town. Cheers and enjoy your scrambler!

That is a good point on the high exhaust. The high exhaust uses the same mount on the right side, I believe.
May have to use a longer bolt like we had to do on the other rear racks with high exhaust.
Looks good tho.
Thanks,
Rod
