The other day i was following a new Vstrom 650 ADV version and i thought it it looked dumb from the rear angle...why? because the 2 panniers are mismatched in size the right pan has to be smaller to accomdate the exhaust pipe so the left pan looks to be at least 1/3rd larger than the right pan.... and it sticks out too far as a result...Why couldnt they reroute the exhaust into the center in the tail assy...then they could have 2 evenly sized bags...as it is now it isnt symmetrical and looks dumb. I would rather have soft luggage than those ugly pans
