the Norge bags were made to fit a whole line of Guzzis....I had those on my 1200 Sport, they'd fit my Stelvio with the stock mounts - and they're made by a company just like Givi...Nonfango. Those companies make bags for Ducati, Guzzi, Aprilia (Capo, Futura) etc.

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.
The bags for the Norge, when I ordered the color matched red for my 1200 Sport - were around $1,000 with mounting brackets.

For Motus to use Givi bags and have people think they cheaped comical at best.

NO motorcycle manufacturer makes their own luggage - it's all farmed out to the companies like Givi, Nonfango, etc.
