GIVI V35 Bags & PLX4114 Mounts On 2015

Have any of you installed the subject bags/mounts on their 2015 Versys? I have an opportunity to buy several different new 2015s and the best price (disregarding the lower list) is for an ABS (non-LT) and I was looking at possible aftermarket cases and feel the V35s would be a good & more economical substitute for the factory items & would like others impressions & photos as I'm not sure how far they would stick out as they have a higher capacity (I believe) than the factory units.

The V35's were the factory bags (just had Kawasaki badges) on the pre 2015 model.

That was my feeling too, so I got the Givi Treker 33 liter, which open two ways , as a suit case and from the top. I have the 35 on my 07 , what I don't like about the 35 is on the kick stand side, everything wants to fall out, elastic strap can only contain large items. The Treker have two internal latches change from suitcase mode to top load mode, also external latches near top, same quick release keyed cases. I am waiting for the mounts to arrive for my 2015.One thing, it isn't shown in the picture but there are external latches at the upper sides. If anyone wants I can take a picture of the cases and post.

That's interesting. I didn't know that about the trekers thank you. I imagine they are more expensive than the V series.

Just went back to twisted throttle, they updated their site, compared the Givi 35 to the Trekker, difference of about $75 to $100 more total for the Trekker. If you buy everything at once, a discount is usually offered, especially if you mention the dealer is trying to sell you the stuff.

onewizard, if you could post photos of the cases installed, I would appreciated it a lot.
