Includes loading ramp!

The Moto-Tote m3 is the latest generation of our best selling motorcycle carrier for dirt bikes and scooters weighing up to 450 lbs. Can also be used for light street bikes with rear tire width of 6 inches or less.

In addition to standard Moto-Tote features, such as:

Easy one-time assembly with minimal tools
Reverse (left or right) assembly
Zero-Wobble™ attachment to hitch

The MTX m3 comes with these new features:

  • Loading ramp is included - Advanced formed tube and wire construction makes it light but extremely strong.

  • Modular design and assembly.

  • Premium grade hardware - Bolts are grade 8 capscrews (expensive) with nyloc nuts.

  • Aircraft inspired beam structure. The Moto-Tote MTX carriers are built on the MTX Platform which is a large diameter tube beam that provides structural support for all critical components of the motorcycle carrier. Everything is bolted to this platform: Tie-down arms, tire track, wheel chock assembly, etc. This construction provides superior strength and structural integrity.

  • Adjustable for wheelbases of 48 to 65 inches. During assembly, the wheel chock can be positioned forward or rearward to perfectly accommodate the size of your bike.

  • Adjustable for a wide range of tire sizes - From small scooter to large dirt bike. In addition to the forward/rearward positioning of the wheel chock, it can also be adjusted for front tire diameter.

  • Adjustable for distance from bumper - Put it as close to the bumper as you need to. Got a spare tire on the rear of your SUV? No Problem!

  • Your bike stays upright during loading until tie-downs can be attached. This saves you from trying to hold the bike up while fumbling with tie-downs.

  • Premium grade black polyester powder-coat finish

  • Superior design makes it stronger but lighter

  • Versatility - The MTX m3 is built on the exclusive MTX Platform which is designed to accommodate interchangeable attachments

  • Last but not least - It looks REALLY cool...

Rating MTX M3
I purchased the MotoTote after extensive research of all available hitch mounted carriers. I chose it for the superior design, low weight and good reputation for customer service. Assembly and set up took me less than 30 minutes. As with most people I had my initial reservation about driving away with my bike on the back but after the first trip I don't think twice. I do follow the strapping instructions exactly with the addition of wheel ties. Once secured in the hitch, there is zero wobble which is very nice. I'm hauling a 2013 KTM 450 SXF with a 2011 F150 (with canopy hence the need for this carrier). With the truck I don't notice any squat with the weight on the back but I guess you might with a small SUV.

Well I took my brand new bike from Atlanta to Hilton Head on my new M3 and have 0 complaints! Easy to assemble, sturdy, adjustable...everything I experience was top notch However, I will mention that no matter how good of a hitch carrier it is still very stressful every time I hit a bump on the road. But the bike was just as tight on there when I got to my destination as when I left

Ordered one of these with the coupon and free shipping on the website. The final cost was such that I went for the new one rather than craiglist, and I thought there might have been improvements with the new model. It appears to be well built. I have not taken the bike anywhere on it yet. However, I do have a couple of complaints. First, the monstrous thing is shipped in a cardboard box. The tabs on the ramp were bent, and one of them lost the powder coating as a result. Which means it will now start rusting. Second, be aware that the main square tubing that goes into the receiver is drilled for one half inch holes, not five eights. So you cannot use any receiver hitch lock or anti-rattle device that you already have. So now I have to buy an expensive silver and deming drill bit unless I want to leave the whole shebang unlocked.

Rating Big fan of the MTX M3 carrier
Big fan of the MTX M3 carrier and very pleased with design and quality. Recently on a trip with the carrier, I clipped a deer with the deer colliding with the front of the carrier and bike. Deer almost stripped the bike off the carrier. Luckily I had placed a stabilizing strap from the bars to the car rack. In any case, the front chock was bent to a 30 degree angle, the bikes front wheel and fender were twisted about 25 degrees from each other, and the front wheel was on the edge of the tie down strap just about to come off. Quite the bang. Was able unload the bike and straighten the chock out a bit along with the bikes front end. Restrapped the bike and continued on. Just ordered a new chock so nice to see replacement parts are available. You folks have struck a nice balance of carrier weight, strength, quality, and function. Cheers.......Bob

Rating Over 16,000 miles
Could you imagine that we had travelled over 16,000 miles in only 4 months with our motorcycle on your Mototote rack, attached to the back of our RV, without any problem at all, traveling from Montreal Qc, down the East coast to Tenessee, then across the USA to San Diego, then all the way up on the US west coast up to Vancouver BC Canada, then up to Alaska, then on the Top of The World Highway from Tok Alaska to Dawson City Yukon, to finish with one of the roughest roads in North America, the Dempster Highway, which is a 450 miles rough dirt road from Dawson City YT to Inuvik NWT with only 1 stop in the middle, to finally have our Mototote rack break down during this last section (Dempster Highway) not because of itself, but because of a human failure when getting off the Ferry ! Your rack has been rock solid during this whole 16,000 miles trip, and hope that the Ferry company will replace it with a new one. In the meanwhile, we had our existing damaged rack welded in Inuvik NWT with different metal parts in order to be able to get back on the road and complete our trip from Inuvik to Dawson with our motorcycle. A very pleased Mototote customer.

Q: Hi, I just wanted to inquire if the Mototote MTX M3 carrier is the right product i need... I want to load a Vespa LXV150 scooter (253 lbs) on the back of my 2009 Jeep Rubicon unlimited (has a rear spare tire). I plan to get a 2 inch Class III hitch receiver as required. Haven't seen pics in the internet with a scooter loaded on it so I wasn't sure.. I mostly see dirt bikes. Are the tie down ratchet straps included? What else will I need? Thanks.
Asked by:  - 4/12/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: The m3 is designed for scooters as well as dirt bikes. To haul a 253 lbs scooter you will need a (vehicle) tongue weight capacity of 313 lbs. which is the total weight of scooter + MotoTote (60 lbs). So you will need to check the tongue weight capacity of the Jeep. If it's the 4 door Jeep you might be OK but I think the 2 door may be too light on towing. Tongue weight capacity is usually 10% of towing capacity.
The only thing not included is tie down straps. You will need 4 (2 pairs).

Q: I have a MotoTote from around 2008 that wobbles a lot. I was hoping to solve the problem by purchasing the anti wobble bolt. However, something doesn't seem right. The hole in the MotoTote seems to be drilled at exactly 5/8 inch (the same as the hole in the receiver), it doesn't appear to be drilled slightly smaller, which is what I expected after reading the description of the anti wobble bolt. So I was wondering if the anti wobble bolt will work for me? Can you please advise me? I would really like to get rid of the wobble! Thanks!
Asked by:  - 3/26/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: The hole was probably drilled out because it should be 7/16".
You can drill another hole next to it (at least an inch away) for use with the MotoTote Zero-Wobble bolt.
