Anyone figure out a way for a bike rack to fit on GV80???
Doesn't seem there are options out there and prefer not to have to install a whole hitch.
thanks
I installed a hitch and a Thule EasyFold hitch for our E-Bikes. It works well and the hitch is visible but does not distract from the good looks of the vehicle.

I took my GV80 to a hitch installer - I have a Curt hitch and a Kuat bike rack - very happy with how it turned out. Dealership estimates for installation and the hitch were outrageous, take it to a hitch installer. The rear collision system has to be turned off when going in reverse which is a pain, but otherwise a great rig.

I agree with that solution. I also priced out a hitch at the dealer, and all-in it was about $1K. Ridiculous.
Went to a local trailer place and they installed a Curt hitch for $289, including labor.
I use it for my bike rack and also for a Black Widow scooter rack.

Luckily my GV80 came with a dealer-installed 2" hitch (Genesis of Brooklyn). I ordered a bike rack from 1up in Wisconsin - the Quick Rack Single.... The nice thing about this rack is that you can tip it upward when its not being used, but I can also remove it in about 30 seconds. The mount is very solid and its very well-made. When its folded, its quite small and easily fits in the back of the car.

Why don't you want to have one installed. A hitch mounted bike rack is by far the best way to carry a bike (s). If you don't like how it looks, my stealth makes one that can be hidden.
