Watling Motorack - Scooter and Motorbike Carrier

Motorack scooter carrier

The Motorack scooter carrier is the ideal method for transporting a
scooter or small motorbike with you on your journeys

The Watling Motorack is fast becoming the ‘new standard’ for towbar-mounted motorbike carriers. Both lightweight and easy to use, it has been designed for single person operation and comes complete with everything you need to get going.

The Watling Motorack simply bolts onto an existing ‘flange’ type towbar and can accommodate most mopeds/scooters or motocross bikes up to 130kg in weight with a wheelbase of up to 1500mm. It can also be used to transport up to two bicycles.

Having a motorbike carrier or scooter rack is an ideal way of taking your local transport with you when you go away in your motorhome. Anyone with a full UK driving licence can ride a 50cc motorbike or scooter with no further qualifications required. It gives you the freedom to pop into town or go and see the local sights without having to pack up your whole motorhome!

The many benefits of a Watling Motorack include:

*Please check the max nose weight of your towbar.
*Overloading your vehicle can be dangerous. Please use our motorhome axle loads form to check that you are within your safe limits. Click here for more details.

The Watling Motorack is finished in galvanised steel and enamel to ensure a long life and comes complete with a 1.5m loading ramp, 4’ lighting board, and 2 tie-down straps so you are ready to go as soon as it arrives. Prices from £275 +Vat (£330 inc.VAT).

Bicycle Adaptor

From time to time, you may wish to adapt your Motorack to carry bicycles instead of a scooter. To assist with this we have designed a simple cycle adaptor that can be added or removed when necessary. Costing only an additional £35 plus VAT this gives maximum versatility for minimal money.

Scooter rain covers

To complement your scooter and Motorack we can provide waterproof covers in various colours and sizes. All Bike Covers are British made and manufactured from a triple layer protection fabric called WEBFLEX. This is a unique multi-layered fabric that has been designed to protect bikes from the harmful effects of direct sunlight, dirt abrasion and elements of the weather and is 100% waterproof.

For complete all weather durability the cover is lap-seamed to ensure that it remains watertight and breathable. All covers will keep your bike free from the natural damage caused by acid rain, bird droppings, dampness and direct UV light.

  • Durable non-abrasive fabric
  • Recommended for outdoor and indoor use
  • Storage bag included.

With prices starting from £67 inc. VAT it is an ideal way of protecting your scooter from motorway muck and grime while it is on the back of your motorhome, or for everyday use at home.
