I agree. I have a Givi V46 and love it. That's why I am torn as whether to buy the standard or adventure model. The farkles are a good buy on the adventure model, but you're stuck with their version.Givi has a V47N top box that looks a lot like the Suzuki's but about $300.00. Looks much better than Suzuki's and much larger. Waiting for them to come out with adapter plate and should be the way to go.
Something must be wrong. The price I got for a Suzuki Top Box was about half what you said. I went with the one from Twisted Throttle instead. Same box, just does not say Suzuki on it.
It is with great sadness that I must pass along news of the death of CooCase. At least, Twisted Throttle now says it is discontinued, and they were the exclusive carrier of the product line. Sadly when I went to order one online they were shown as out of stock, with only the "basic" model, without electronic lock, remote, or brake lights.CooCase S50 is (or was) on sale at twisted throttle for $229 - includes lights, liner, and remote with electronic lock / unlock. Add a set of hyperlites for about $100 and you have a GREAT setup. Did this on the Wee and will be going the same route on the new bike.
Just wondering if this top box will be offered in the US? Anyone with any thoughts on this?You can find the 55 liter box at the Suzuki Austria site:

Interestingly, they have virtually all the DL1000A accessories that have been released by Suzuki. It's a good reference site for the third party accessories that should start appearing soon.
