New Touratech ‘EVO X’ Panniers Shaped To Fit Around The Exhaust

Touratech launches symmetrical Zega Evo X panniers with quick-release.

Published on 01.22.2020

Last spring, Touratech launched a quick-release pannier system that was well received by motorcycle touring enthusiasts. Dubbed the Zega Evo, it offered  a rugged design, finger-friendly latches, and the easy-on/easy-off convenience motorcycle travelers yearn for in their panniers. Now there is a new Evo ‘X’ version that gives customers even more of what they’ve been asking for – a pannier shaped to fit around the exhaust.

Evo X panniers are a special version of the quick-release Zega EVO system that features a cut-out for the exhaust on the right side. This allows riders to run the same width boxes on both sides while achieving a narrower overall system width.  This provides more capacity than off-set boxes while achieving a more symmetrical look.

 “Zega Evo is the most advanced pannier ever produced by Touratech and now the Evo X brings balance and symmetry to this incredible product. The shape of the Evo X box maximizes secure storage space while keeping the bike as narrow as possible.”   –Kimmo Lassila, VP of Sales, Touratech-USA


Evo X provides quick-mount convenience without giving up reliability. Riders simply slip the hooks onto the rack, push the case completely in and close the lever to secure the box.

Touratech’s range of pannier accessories extend storage by easily snapping onto the accessory pins that come pre-installed on the Zega Evo X. Now, fuel cans, bottle holders and other accessories are a snap to add to your panniers. The lid also has lashing loops on the interior and exterior of the lid to further extend storage and improve organization.
