V-Strom Travellers Package

According to this, they're in the showrooms now. First one I've seen since the bike show. At $1000 over the price of a naked one, I'd say it's good value (by eastern Canadian standards). The case setup alone must cost that.

side cases

They look like TraX side cases, look at the Twisted Throttle site.

I think you're right. The ones on the bike I saw had Suzuki stamped into the aluminum on the top case, so they must have been made specifically for Suzuki by SWmotech (or savvy sweat shop). This particular dealer would have no idea about any of these details.

Yes, they are just the common rebadged Trax cases... You can buy them from Twisted Throttle fo the last 3 years or so...

I do like the look, though...

Looks good, like the OP said at $1000 more than a stock one it is a great value.

bags

TraX bags ain't cheap, nice stuff though. $1000 over the base bike is a pretty good deal.

It's also pretty common for dealers, even good ones, to not know about aftermarket accessories. Mine was amazed at my Madstad bracket

Btw, if you have a bracket like this and the dealer is servicing the bike, leave instructions for them to leave it alone, or you'll have to readjust it all over again after the mechanic(s) plays with it.

I had the kid at the parts counter at the large dealer I bought my Wee from argue with me about Givi making crash bars for our bike...they were about to lose my sale when he found them in the catalog. He never did apologize though...

Those are TRAX bags for sure, I just bought a set. Wonder what else it come with. Even if it is just the racks and the side bags $1000 is a fair price. If it comes with the trunk, it's a deal!
I wonder if they will be seen in the states?
