a random example of bags made specifically for the bike that fit the lines and style better, the norge


200 to 300 Motus per year vs how many Norge sales? Probably a few thousand. In addition I think they also fit other Guzzis as an accesory so even their economy of scale is in a different league.
Bespoke bags would probably have added thousands of dollars to the cost vs. hundreds for the Givi. Honda charges about $1000 for a set these days. I didn't think my Honda/Givi top case was too cheap in any way.
So many around here are bitching about the price already, and side bags are a part time proposition for most.
