I moaned at Givi for ages about changing the brackets. They first denied there was an issue until I showed them what i had to do to get the 2015/16 frames to fit on the 2017 model, which they do, but only with serious modification. I'd like to think I had some part in getting them to change the bracket, as they continued selling the frames without ever saying they wouldn't fit the 2017 model. Future discussion they sadly ignored. It's a shame they are such a***holes to talk to, as they make the best luggage out there imho.

I must agree, in my experience Givi haven't been very good when contacted...I also agree Kryton...their products are generally excellent

I talked on facebook with another Italian v1k '17 owner that modified on February the PLX mounts for the '16 model. Givi told him that they would have released an updated version. Perhaps, as far as I know there is no PLX mounts (for the V35 side bags) for the '17 model.... just the PLR, the one I have.

Another info that may be useful for other Italians and possibly EU owners.. the PLR4120 + Kappa garda 33 are 99cm wide, so they are under the 1m legal limit (at least for the Italian road rules). The original side bags should be 101cm as written in the vehicle registration document.

Very happy with my luggage set up.Side panniers are the givi dolomitI. Lot more spacious and easier to load up with the top opener.

Givi makes top notch cases. Using Kappa 33 which is quality alternative. The 2015 V oem side cases look slick but think the square cases offer more baggage space.

Nice thing about this square boxes, the look pretty good as a topbox too.
This is a bloody great Bike....!
