New owner (Washington St.)

Wife bought one (2017 EX with Tech Package) on 11/24. (I don't drive.) We've already scheduled an appointment to have a trailer hitch installed so we can plug the Thule rack in and haul my bike. Hopefully the rack won't screw up the backup camera or sensors!

Welcome aboard. Enjoy your NIRO, we do on a EX purchased FEB 2017 (near 10,000 miles now).

I would guess the bike rack when installed would interfere with the backup camera as camera lense is centered.

Welcome to the forum!

I don't think that you will be able to see anything in your backup camera, but sensors should work well. Keep us posted and upload some photos if possible!

Congrats on the new Niro! With a bike mounted, the rear view mirror is most likely going to be blocked.
Post up a picture once the installation is completed.
