The Givi SR4114 rack works great!

Mostly posting this for future searchers - the Givi SR4114 rear topcase bracket works great on my 2015 Versys 650 LT. It's thick black steel (not chrome like some descriptions say!) and feels very sturdy. All the holes lined up and it was very easy to install.

I don't think it looks quite as good as the Kawasaki rack, but most people will never notice. And at about 15% of the cost of the Kawasaki rack, I'd definately prefer the Givi SR4114 .

I think if all you are going to mount on it is the top box, its probably fine. But I plan to figure out a way to mount a bicycle tray on mine so I went with the Kawasaki one. Its much more robust, but also a lot more expensive.

Funny, Givi makes the OEM racks and luggage for Kawi....

They do make the side & top cases, and the liners. And the mounting plate. I am not sure if they make the rack or not. Because this rack is definitely different than what you get if you order the Kawasaki one. The other items are exactly the same except for branding though.

Givi does make the cases and mounting plate, as I bought the V47 which is the exact same case as the Kawasaki one. But the rack itself is definitely not made by Givi.
