Luggage rack?

Why did Suzuki stop making the luggage rack for the 650. I find them on E-bay but for crazy prices.

Probably because most people just buy Givi's top quality luggage boxes.

I think it is a mistake and an opportunity for some savvy builder. Many people prefer a rack and many modern racks serve as bases for Givi and other topboxes. Suzuki's lime the Vstrom also come with a decent luggage rack as part of the motorcycle.

Givi makes a good product but not only do they charge plenty for the topbox, they will get you for another $100 for the mount. That is ridiculous.

I agree, their prices are high. Doesn't really matter to me. I've had my first givi box for 14 years now. If you spread that cost out over the product life, it's pretty cheap (:

+1


My Givi topcase (E55) is on it's 2nd bike and about 8 years old. Still as good as new, no leaks, no rattles, and other than some scuffs from carrying it into hotel rooms, looks and functions good as new.
I fully expect many more years of good service from my Givi luggage.

Agree on quality,,,,,I switch between bikes but would prefer a true luggage rack/givi mount combo like many bikes come with.

What do you mean?

My only complaint about Givi is they don't make hard case side mount option for the TMAX. Having to use soft bags kinda sucks.
