Do you regularly ride solo or are you an Adventure Rider?

  • Is lifting a motorcycle a problem? Can you lift your bike by yourself? Can you lift it with 35kg / 75lbs luggage?
  • Undergone a Back or Knee surgery, want to extend your riding career but you want to ride the motorcycle of YOUR choice? 

The MotoWinch provides you with autonomy (again). No more worry about lifting a motorcycle by yourself or having to wait until helping hands pass by. The MotoWinch is a great tool but please note that for safety reasons it is advised to never visit rough and remote areas alone on the motorcycle.

The MotoWinch multifunctional features;

  • Winch to lift your dropped motorcycle. Also think about  situations when you get caught under the motorcycle with your leg, the dangerous pinned down situations!
  • Service jack for general maintenance (chain lube, brakes, etc.)
  • Axle wheel nut spanner set (optional)
  • Bead breaker to separate tyre from rim (optional)
  • Tyre spoon set to remove / mount tyre from / on rim (optional)

Although initially designed for lifting heavy Adventure bikes, the MotoWinch can lift almost any motorbike without overloading your back, shoulders or knees. From unpacking until having the motorcycle back on its wheels will only take a few minutes. Because of its multifunctional character, it will save packing volume, weight and money on tools that you need anyway for your adventure trip or holiday.

MotoWinch Size selection;

As a rule of thumb, the LC1500 MotoWinch is suitable for the single cilinder motorcycles with approx 20 to 25kg luggage and mid size twin cilinder motorcycles (210kg class) without luggage. If you ride a single cilinder motorcycle on a long trip with 30+ kg of luggage or a twin cilinder with any kind of luggage, please choose the LC2500. The luggage changes everything!

The LC2500 MotoWinch is also capable of lifting any other type of motorcycle up to and including large HD Cruisers.

Some data;

  • the MotoWinch (LC1500) weighs only 1650 grams (3,64lbs )
  • package size is approximately 25x12x10cm (10×4.7×4″).
  • all critical parts are CNC machined from billet 7075 T6 “aerospace” aluminium. 
  • 7075 T6 material strength is almost twice as strong as regular steel. 
  • NONE of the aluminium parts have been welded because welded aluminium loses a significant amount of its strength.

I have a beast of a bike Super Tenere. I have dropped my 600+ pound bike more than once and it’s getting darn near impossible to pick up when riding solo. The MotoWinch is the hot ticket for saving your strength and continuing on your way with no drama. It’s compact, quick to setup, and simple to use. Another big plus is how well it’s fabricated. High quality components and nice tight fitting extensions. Don’t forget to get the optional Delrin load spreader. It doubles for a kickstand pad in the soft stuff. Thank you Eastbound!

I have a BMWf800GSA, a quite big and heavy bike for my body frame and strength. Different bike size give different riding experiences and I don’t want to give up my GSA, or stop riding solo, or stop daring to ride remote areas only because I drop my bike a lot … a lot! The MotoWinch has become the perfect solution for me and my riding style and bike size. Ride your ride and get the proper tools and accessories to allow to do it your way. Thumbs up for Eastbound helping me to get where I want!

Hi mate, well I must thank you for making such an awesome bit of kit with the winch. Yesterday I had my bike on its stand in muddy conditions. I went to stand on the peg to mount it when it fell. My leg was pinned under the rear pillion peg and I was stuck in mud on my side. I was able to get the winch from its holder I made and after about 10 minutes lifted the rear up enough to get my leg out. Luckily I only ride with quality boots otherwise my leg would have broken.

On Day 3 of my New Mexico BDR trip I ran into a section of tennis ball-sized gravel that was very deep and very loose. I wasn’t going fast, but still was not able to correct the steering and went down. I was close to the side of the road where there was a drop-off. The bike was very close to the edge and it would not be easy to get it back on the road. The worse part of the situation was that when the bike went down, it trapped my right leg underneath the right pannier. I had the MotoWinch for just this sort of problem and had packed it on the outside of my luggage so I could reach it if I was in a situation like this. My trapped leg made moving around difficult and painful. But with some hard work and patience, I was able to access the MotoWinch and lift the bike off of my leg. Unlike other bike jacks, the MotoWinch attaches to the handlebar…this was great! In my trapped situation, it would have been a lot harder to attach the strap somewhere on the frame like most other bike jacks require. After I had freed my leg, I used the MotoWinch to winch the bike, a few inches at a time, away from the edge. Thanks for a great product!
