I've read that the GIVI mounts are a little bit "tighter" to the bike - but when you are talking about what is probably a 1/4" - 1/2" difference on a 44+" width, it just isn't that big a deal.
Get the ones you like for the features you want. I bought the GIVI's and have been very happy with them. They went on quickly, and are very strong - the cases go on/off in seconds - and I don't think the bars covering the mufflers looks out of place when I ride without the cases.
Hope this helps,
