2012 Rack and side cases

I'm looking for some hard side cases for the 2012 Versys.
I see lots of different ones that other members are using but I'm having a difficult time discerning what fits on the 2012 and what doesn't.

So, who has side cases on their 2012, what rack did they use?
What cases? What do you think?

I think I'd like to just have some Givi E21, but I don't know if there is a mounting system that works for the 2012.

Thank you

Do you want all GIVI? Meaning racks + cases? Also, do you only want side racks, top rack, or both side and top?

If you let us know that, we can help more!

I'm not set on any particular brand.
I just want some hard side cases and have no idea what racks or cases might work for the 2012.

I'm running Happy-Trail SU Racks and HT Owyhee boxes... (And a Hardig case for a top box) on my 2011. They should fit a 2012 same-same.

Those look like really nice cases genehil, but I was looking for something a little more streamlined I think, and cheaper.

Here is an example of the cause for my confusion.

Does that rack work with the 2012 versys?
I think it does, but it doesn't specify.
Presumably that rack could be used with these cases?

I've got the factory brackets, and Givi V35 bags on both of mine (09,012) I like them on both bikes. The 08-09 take different brackets than the 010-012.

I like the look, and the storage of the V35's.. (the factory brackets are Givi's)
