Not quite yet. They're still finalizing stuff on their end, and we're a bit behind in the process. Here's what I know for the time being:
  • These are going to be constructed for Holan in The Czech Republic. We've been told the construction of these is absolutely first rate - seams for instance will be both welded & riveted prior to being silicon sealed.
  • There are going to be two sizes - 40L and 32L - 44x38x24 & 44x38x19 cm respectively.
  • Cases will be available in both aluminum and black powdercoated.
  • Each case will probably come standard with the canister and holders
  • Mounts will be Holan made and will alternatively accept the Touratech Cases
  • Inner bags and top mounting bags will also be available

Below are two prototype pictures:

Again, it's not a done deal by any stretch. We're still getting a handle on just integrating the Holan products into our F800 centered world to date. These are next on our agenda though, and I should have more to report after getting a eval case in, and when I 'test' it's impact resilience.
As of September 6th 2013, all Motorcycle Insight sites list above have been sold to and are operated by LM Cycle Supply. Please see the official announcement here.
