Motorbike / Scooter Carrier
The HitchMate Motorbike / Scooter carrier is designed to safely support and carry a single motorbike or scooter on most any vehicle equipped with a Class 4 towbar receiver. The more robust the towbar the more weight you can safely carry. The HitchMate motorcycle carrier is a channel design with multiple tie down points and supplied with full length loading ramp, ADR compliant lighting and accessory rego plate holder, visibility reflectors and a fitted and adjustable front tyre support chock; all standard and included.
We manufacture two motorcycle/scooter carrier models for distinctly different
The On-Road model is designed for motorbike/scooter transport on roadways and highways and capable of carrying a motorbike of up to 130kgs. This carrier comes complete with two pair of tiedown points with the front pair adjustable. Standard lighting is included with LED lighting an optional extra.
The Off-Road model will accommodate a motorbike up to 220kgs on an appropriate vehicle with a Class 4 towbar and safely transport it anywhere this host vehicle can take it. Again, the loading ramp, four tie down points with both pairs adjustable, ADR compliant LED lighting, rego plate holder and adjustable front tyre support chock are all standard.
Both models are fully powder-coated and fastened with 304 solid stainless fittings and 316 stainless tie down eye nuts. Even a substantial padlock is supplied for securing your ramp to the carrier assembly.
Both our carriers can be ordered to load from either the right or left side and equipped with the wiring plug appropriate for your specific vehicle.
HitchMate motorcycle carriers can be elevated above the position of the vehicle's towbar receiver utilizing our "Riser" accessory. This insert results in additional ground clearance and minimises the possibility of scraping on the ground or on the road surface. 135mm (5.25in) and 200mm (8in) elevation increase "Risers" are available for both On-Road and Off-Road carriers.
Both HitchMate motorcycle/scooter carrier models are designed to accept an optional motorized winching system allowing for a single rider to easily and safely load a substantial or manual clutch motorbike onto the HitchMate carrier. This cost effective accessory was first developed for a physically challenged Vietnam Veteran and with dozens sold and in use has proven itself to be a reliable and a very cost effective addition.
...And, ...like our cargo carriers the HitchMate motorbike/scooter carrier when appropriately installed is compliant nationwide. All you need are the tiedown straps and a destination. And yes, …you can take it with you.
