Hauling your motorcycle or scooter with you on vacation or going back to college couldn't be simpler with this hitch mounted carrier from Tilt-a-Rack. With the loading ramp and an extension built right in, all you do is push the bike up the ramp until the front wheel rests in the adjustable wheel chock and the ramp deck levels out. Two sizes are available, so this motorcycle carrier works great for dirt bikes, motocross and other smaller motorcycles, too.
All aluminum construction is lightweight and strong
Integrated, tilting ramp for fast, convenient loading
Built in, adjustable wheel chock
Requires 2" Class III or IV receiver hitch

This hitch mounted tilting motorcycle carrier has a tilt feature which allows quick loading without the need for a separate ramp. This aluminum tilting motorcycle rack is super lightweight!
New aluminum Tilt-a-Rack motorcycle carrier rack is a tilting carrier that eliminates the need for separate ramps. Two carrier sizes are available to fit most scooters, motocross bikes, small motorcycles or even a Vespa. Simply deploy the attached rack extender ramp, tilt the rack to the ground and load. The weight of the motorcycle returns the carrier to the horizontal position and then simply slide the rack extender ramp back into the carrier's body, secure the motorcycle or scooter with straps and go! Each tilting motorcycle rack has a one year warranty. The two available racks come with two weight capacities to fit your motorcycle hauling needs. The 410 model has a 400 lb weight capacity for larger motocross bikes, Vespas and larger street scooters, and the 610 model has a 600 lb capacity for larger off road motorcycles (requires a Class IV receiver). We offer a complete line of accessories for the Tilt-a-Rack carrier including tie down packages, weatherproof motorcycle covers, silent hitch pins, and height adjusters to adjust the carrier higher or lower.

Purchased this to use with our RV. We carry a Genuine Scooter Blur with us, which is not a light scooter, weighing 325 lbs. We purchased the 400lb version, and it is amazing. The extendable ramp makes loading simple, and the fully adjustable wheel chock allowed us to make a perfect fit around the front tire.
Overall quality is excellent, with well engineered components and high quality materials. It's light enough that we can quickly move it from our RV to our truck, or anything with a 2" hitch receiver.
Scooters are a little heavy in the rear end, so if I had to nit pick, my only complaint would be that it's not quite as easy as loading a motorcycle, because not enough of the weight of the scooter gets up the ramp to allow it to pivot forward. You just need to lift a bit on the back end of the scooter. It does require two,people, but that is a result of the scooter's design, not the ramp.
Aside from the excellent ramp, the customer service at DiscountRamps also gets 5 stars. We ordered our ramp with an anti rattle hitch pin. The bolt snapped the first time we used it. It was clearly a manufacturer's defect. With one call to customer service, a replacement was sent out the next day. The customer service rep was outstanding!

This is the best scooter carrier!! Assembly was quick and easy. The unit itself is ideal for one person loading and unloading. I specifically bought it so my wife would not struggle if she were left alone to transport one of our two scooters.
