Hi Hades, Givi Points are stiff in their prices, no nego, no price cuts. However, if you can find a bike dealer who is the authorized seller, he can give you a cut. For e.g., I got my Givi Engine Guard for RM550 versus RM585. Nevertheless, I got the top box and rack later on from the same shop. Anyway, if you are heading up to Penang, I can recommend the shop that gave me a good deal.
For V2010 and above.
PLXR racking system is suited for just 1 box V35, while PLR racks are suitable for any boxes that is a monokey, even top boxes, and you get more choices of boxes. Both are quick release type which is why the pricing for the racks is almost 2X of that of the 2009 and older models.
The PLXR system happens to have closer fit than to the one provided by Kawasaki, so the boxes are neatly tugged in closer to the bike making it slimmer overall.
Importing from the UK, there would be a 25% import duty plus an additional of 10% sales tax for the worst case scenario. I have checked eBay and Givi goods from Italy is the lowest of prices.
I was considering the TRK33N boxes for a while (uses PLR, Monokey) but the cost is just way too high. Now, I have shifted to SW-Motech 37L boxes, haven't made the purchase yet but do so before my next tour. DC Biker is selling the entire system for around RM2700 which I think is even cheaper than the Givi's offering. Maybe you can consider SW-Motech.
