Recommendation for Transporting 400 lb Motorcycle With 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX


2012 Subaru Impreza WRX. Would there be an issue towing my 400 lb bike with one of the hitch carriers? 2inch receiver to a platform with the bike on it. Only 3 hours all highway no bumps.


Expert Reply:

The EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 306-X7261 you asked from for your 2012 Subaru Impreza is not compatible with your 400 lb motorcycle with a carrier. This hitch is only rated for a max capacity of 300 lbs. That greatly surpasses the hitch weight capacity and doesn't even include the weight of the motorcycle carrier itself.

Your best option would be to tow a small trailer like the Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer # K2MMT5X7. For this you will also need the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56111 and ball mount # C45534. Then you can use the motorcycle chock # MT70271 and straps # EM05729 to secure your bike. The tongue weight from a light trailer like this will not overload your vehicle.
