Zega EVO Pannier System, Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L & Adventure Sports
An adventure motorcycle with a world-traveling pedigree like the Honda Africa Twin deserves the best luggage system on the market. The Touratech Zega EVO pannier system for the CRF1000L or Adventure Sports Africa Twin features the same rugged construction of our proven Zega Pro pannier, with added features and the convenience of quick-release mounting for day-to-day use.
ZEGA Evo Panniers offer the ultimate in dry and secure storage for your Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L or ADV-Sports while giving you the convenience of a quick-mount mechanism. Enjoy quick-release convenience without giving up reliability, even in the most demanding applications. The box can be further secured from theft or tampering by using the included keyed locks.
Quick-mount for easy-on, easy-off convenience
We’ve improved the ergonomics and feel of the panniers by developing a new die-forging technique that creates rounded ‘finger-friendly’ contours making the release mechanism effortless to operate for easy-on, easy-off convenience. Simply slip the hooks onto the rack of your Africa Twin, push the case completely in and close the lever to secure the box.
The ZEGA Evo comes with heavy-duty stainless steel racks that have earned a reputation for durability by world travelers the world over. With 18mm tubing and robotically welded construction, these ZEGA Evo racks are built on a long tradition of strength and durability. The system comes with all hardware and everything you need to install in one package.
The lid has a tough tongue-and-groove aluminum edge with an integrated silicone seal making a completely waterproof closure. The pannier is equipped with a waterproof vent that relieves pressure when changing elevation - like when riding over a mountain pass.
Another distinctive feature of ZEGA Evo is its new embossed shape in the styling of the Touratech brand. The corner protection has also been updated for a modern look with enhanced ergonomic grip and feel for handling off of the bike.
Integrated accessory mounting pins come pre-installed with the ZEGA Evo, so accessories can be added without drilling holes in the boxes. Touratech’s legendary range of pannier accessories extends your storage for fuel cans, water bottles, and a range of other options.
Additional storage on top of the lid is made easy with forged aluminum lashing loops on all four corners of the lid. Storage inside of the lid is supported by the integrated lashing loops inside of the corners taking advantage of space that is underutilized in most panniers.
You can open the pannier from either end for easy access or even remove the lid all together using the dual-hinge latches. The ZEGA Evo comes with a removable strap that serves to prevent losing a lid while underway.
The Zega EVO Pannier system includes all locks necessary to lock the cases and secure them to the rack. If you need a specific key code to match your existing Touratech GPS mount, topcase, or other locking Touratech items, please note the number in the comments field during the checkout process.
The lid and base are now manufactured with a deep drawing manufacturing method- eliminating the welded seams. The body and base are secured by tried-and-true stainless steel rivets sealed with silicone gaskets.
Carrying panniers can be cumbersome. You’ll love the ergonomic handles on top of the panniers making it easy to carry panniers off of the bike. The heavy-duty strap with ergonomic rubber grip provides a helping hand hauling the boxes away from the bike.
The overall width of the 31/38L system on the Africa Twin CRF1000L or Adventure Sports is 39 inches. The width of the 38/45L system is 42 inches.
The high ground clearance of the boxes allows you to negotiate sections of deep sand or ruts. The high ground clearance also helps with cornering at speed. The 45 Liter size case can fit a full-sized helmet for storage.
ZEGA cases by Touratech are often emulated but never matched for quality and function. The new ZEGA Evo again sets the standard for motorcycle luggage that is ready for any adventure on your Honda Africa Twin or Adventure Sports.
NOTE: In 2018, Honda started using wider rear turn signals with 15mm spacers on them for the North American market. Because of this spacer, the left rear turn signal interferes with the pannier when installed on the rack. The simple fix is to relocate the spacer on the rear turn signals to the inside of the tail section, reducing the rear turn signal width by 15mm on each side. This is done without permanent modifications to the motorcycle or re-wiring. Instructions are included in the delivery of the rack.
This is only necessary on 2018 and newer CRF1000L and Adventure Sports models with factory turn signals using Touratech aluminum panniers.
