I wrote to the e-mail address Dave listed and received a prompt reply:
Thanks for the input and the info. From the beginning we intended
this bike to be a light weight explorer. It will have luggage options
and wind screen options for sure.
I don't think it is well suited for heavy duty steel paniers, but
certainly will carry reasonable medium sized hard bags or soft bags.
I'll look into what you have mentioned here, and rest assured - it
will be made to carry luggage. Also, the tank on this bike can
accomodate virtually any size tank bag and has great mounting points.
Thanks again for the suggestions, and I hope you will pass on that we
heard you and will not proceed to market without a luggage strategy!!!
