The only kit in the market that does not modify the frame in any way!
If you do NOT want to lose the official Husqvarna warranty, you are in the correct page. We heard plug and play before and we heard 'no mod kit’. Do ask before you buy, otherwise you may be trapped in the small letters that suggest 'Please use a Dremel to cut the frame tabs indicated' and if/when the time comes to claim something from Husqvarna you would not have any chance. Modifying the frame is hands down the worst-case scenario. Aurora 701 Xplorer kit is the only one in the market today that uses OEM Rally Factory parts and does not modify the frame in any way. On top of that, you can re-order the parts at will, wherever you are from your local KTM dealer. Be free!
One of the most important parts on the bike. Holding the navigation tower and electrics. When collaborating with winning teams, we know that failure is not an option. Aurora Rally Equipment is active in the Rally scene since 2013 and our equipment has won multiple times in the mighty Africa Eco Race and in Dakar. We have used data logging equipment to understand the forces involved during riding and crashing. Using temperature loggers and three axis accelerometers on Rally bikes, we designed a pioneering head clamp like no other. Machined out of a solid block of aluminium, using the stock mounting points on the bike, our innovative design uses a third anchor point to increase strength and stability. We are proud that since its birth, there are no failures. See our ‘Tech’ section for photos and testimonials of people who crashed!
Everything comes pre-assembled
Fuel lines, skid plate brackets, tank brackets, navigation tower. Everything comes pre-assembled. Ask before you buy because other 'bolt on' kits you'd have to assemble the fuel lines, the tank accessories and even all the Dzus fasteners with their retaining clips. In Aurora 701 Xplorer, everything is pre-assembled. The tanks come with all their accessories bolted on, and all the electrical and fuel lines are ready to be installed on the bike. All the items are pre-assembled thus the kit can be installed in two days easily on the bike and off you go!
Seeing is believing
The only kit in the market with all billet tank brackets
Guaranteed for the life of the product
We guarantee you, that these are the only brackets in the market designed by Mechanical Engineers in the field. See the ‘101’ section for more details. Yeah, there are cheaper ways to do it, but ask yourself what would happen if any of those brackets gives up while you are on a RTW trip or just having fun abroad. Since these brackets hold the tanks, there is a lot at stake when you are travelling, especially if you are off the grid. We guarantee that our brackets will hold, and we test them to the extreme riding the bike both in civil and in racing conditions. We use extreme rallies (Morocco Desert Challenge, Albania Rally) and we always make sure that we are not the ones riding the bike, but riders abroad, builders or professionals so that we get unbiased opinions and feedback. The new design is lighter, stronger and more adjustable than the 1st generation further improving the kit that won the Morocco Desert Challenge in 2018.
We are actively involved in the Rally scene since 2013. We were one of the first companies in the field that had access to the KTM Carbon tower. So much, that we understood that this is so complex, that no 'local garage' can replicate it. It must be done by a proper, composite company. Thus, remaining true to the brand’s heritage, we designed a navigation tower like no other. Easy cable access, strong yet flexible to protect your valuable gear, this tower can be transformed either to a digital setup using HighwayDirtbikes unique iPad and iPhone cases, or to a rally cockpit using the winning Aurora Rally Equipment products. Materials are chosen carefully to allow the assembly to be strong, yet flexible so that your equipment is always protected, even after a crash. See our ‘Tech’ section for more information and pictures of how the tower performs during a crash! The only tower for 701 in the market that comes with preinstalled special rivet nuts making installation a real joy!
