I took a chance trying to install the Curt Hitch and it worked perfectly.

Looks great! The interior trim looks better than I thought too.

Quite the setup there with the supermoto! How's it handle the extra weight?

The rear end drops a bit with the hitch and bike. Combined tongue weight of about 350lbs. My two GLK`s dropped the same amount. Towing has no effect on performance. Feels like you have 2 passengers.

Mercedes GLA45 AMG
I wanted a Hitch for long distant trips to carry a Bike rack and didn't want a permanent solution. Ended up using Stealth Hitches. They actually made a custom hitch for the GLA45 as I was their first customer and the GLA250 application didn't work for the rear apron. It works great if you don't want the hitch to be seen when not in use. Only down side is, the hitch was too low to the ground for most bike Applications. I have a couple of KUAT racks and ended up using a Goose-neck 9" riser from amazon made for ATVs with the Stealth Hitch. This brings teh bikes away from the exhaust and I can even open the tailgate without lowering the rack.
