If the CBR500R will take the bags, that could likely be the clincher for me. If Givi comes up with a mount for V35's, it's a done deal. And the color panel is a separate accessory for the Honda bags. With the NC700X coming to the US in red for 2013, I imagine that panel would be available in what I hope would be the same red. If not, black saddlebags would be fine enough for me.
