I don't think it is that impossible. It's about the same weight I got when I put my bike on the scale...
Two different scales, two different countries. Approximate same weight.
I might have not been carrying so much personal stuff, but my Pelican cases weigh a lot when compared to those soft bags.
I think the bike manufacturers lie their asses off when they quote the weight.
My bike has Akras, but it also has the OEM crashbars, a (very heavy) Touratech Skidplate, a TT rear rack, plus the Pelican Cases with Happy Trail Racks (which are lighter than the OEM ones).
