MTX Platform

Heavy-duty steel main support connects to 2" receivers, hauls up to 600 lbs. (272 kgs.), supports chock, track, orientation, and distance from vehicle adjustability, alongside the attachment of innovative components.

StableStop Chock Extra Wide

Adjustable two piece tire mount locks front tires up to 5.5" (139 mm) wide into chock, maximizes support, and holds the bike upright while securing tie-downs.

MaxHold HD Tracks

Laser cut track with advanced geometry reduces carrier weight, grips/wedges rear tires up to 9" (229 mm) wide into the track, and accomodates up to a 62" (157 cm) wheelbase.

BroadPull+ Arms (Front & Back)

Two wide tie-down arms maximize tie down leverage on the front and rear of the motorcycle. Patented shape increases carrier clearance on hills and off-road.

QuickLoad Ramp

A long laser-cut ramp increases tire's traction, eases the loading angle and unhooks from the same side the ramp connects for a quicker loading process.

ZeroWobble+ Hitch Mount

Upgraded single-bolt hitch mount installs quickly, requires fewer tools and eliminates rack movement in transport.

MotoTote Max +

Easy to assemble and install with video instructions.
Secure connection to vehicle. Nice ramp and feels solid.

Chelsey Matthys

I recently purchased this tote to bring my XSR from Ontario to New Brunswick, about 2500km. Every bump along the road made me cringe (afraid of dropping the bike), but everytime I stopped to check the attachment it was all still rock solid! We even took some scenic and remote dirt roads along the way, so definitely put some stress on the hitch. Made it here with no troubles at all; would definitely recommend!
Also super easy to put together, the videos couldn’t have been easier to follow! Loading and offloading are easy as well, I’m about 5”9 and had no trouble doing it alone, as long as your straps are placed and ready to hold the bike once it’s up on the chock.
Awesome product!

Amazing build quality

Easy to build and install. Super high quality. Ours came with some slight scratches from shipping and they sent touch up paint overnight.

Moto Tote Max +

I’m very satisfied with my Moto Tote Max + and the customer service. I was not shipped one of the pack of bolts so I couldn’t complete the assembly process. I contacted them by email on a Friday and I had the pack of bolts by Monday. I just completed an 800 mile trip with my 2018 Moto Guzzi V7 and the Moto Tote performed flawlessly! I would definitely recommend it.

Worth the Money

I was very skeptical about putting a $13K ZX6R on this carrier but let me tell you, it works. I went from San Antonio TX to Raleigh, NC and then another trip from NC to NY and back. Both trips I took this and had my bike on it, it never budged, all the straps stayed tight, and the bike never bumped the truck, never came close to falling off, and I did it by myself most of the time. I am a 6' guy and I had no problems pushing my bike up the ramp and on to the carrier. Only con, the lights you can buy separately should be included with the purchase, it is pretty unsafe without them.


I love the build quality. I'm using it to haul my KTM super adventure 1290s. It's about 500 to 525 lbs. I am not a fan of the bolt that is used to secure it to the hitch to eliminate the rocking. I purchased the hitch tightener on amazon and that actually secured it much better than the bolt design from rocking side to side. I also had to put a washer under the pin for the ramp when it is in storage. It jumps around back there because the pin alone allows clearance to "rattle"

Incredible Customer Service service

I ordered the MotoTote max plus I could tell by looking at the construction it is a great motorcycle carrier. Unfortunately I never got to use it because I decided to sell my RV but Marvin the owner and manager was so incredible helping me through the return process and the assembly process. I will be definitely getting another one once I figure out what vehicle I will be purchasing. Great company, great service.

Impressive but could use some design improvements

It’s solid and better designed than most hitch carriers but it still needs improvement. The clearances on parts are too tight. Had to use some lube and a Mallot to get the cross bar and hitch spine parts to fit together as well as the tie down arms connected to cross bar. The Max seems to have gutters going all the way down the line but the wings / gutters on the Max+ stop at the back wheel making the front wheel pretty susceptible to going off the rail when loading and unloading your bike. You need to be very precise in your alignment. There’s tubing on each side but it’s not high enough to offer much assurance. When you do get it on it seems pretty trustworthy. My bike is 430 lb wet. Definitely have a helping hand the first few times loading and unloading.
