I believe that's British for trunk or top box. Givi makes a rack that fits and they have several options for the box. Used by my Strommers. Other options as well.

Sorry you guys over the pond, we speak the same yet so different.

It rehangs the license plate removing the rear mud guard to make it all a little neater.

Is that what you call a fender?

LOL, thats funny! Most of us over here simply cut ours shorter and re-mount the license plate.

No, nobody makes a kit like that for the V-Strom because of the way the rear fender is integrated into the bike. Rear fenders are separate parts on sportbikes because you don't need them on a racetrack, so they're designed to be easily removed. Doesn't take much then to make a new plate hanger to take it's place. But the V-Strom's fender and wheelwell is all molded in one big piece. There's nothing to unbolt, and your only option is to cut it shorter.
