Will The Mo-Tow Suit My Car?

It's super hard to gather a list of suitable vehicles as there are many factors that determine it's suitability for a particular car, some basic guidelines are as follows:

  • Must be fitted with a pull out type tow-bar - 50x50mm receiver.
  • The car needs to have a "downward load rating" of at least the weight of the bike plus the weight of the Mo-Tow (20kgs) combined.

For example:

A Ford Focus XR5 generally, is fitted with a tow-bar which would only have a rating of around 90 kgs. This means if a Mo-Tow was fitted, the bike weight could not exceed 70kgs.

It may be worthwhile having a tow-bar company asses your vehicle first to get a clear indication of your tow-bar's load rating before making a purchase.
