Correct. Better, lighter, less €ŁĄ$ and more choices than OEM boxes.
But hey...all the latest OEM boxes are rebranded Givi boxes  :008: so Hinckley likes them too

I'd go for Givi too, anything Monokey rather than Monolock depending on how big you want to go.
I have a V47, and an old Maxia E52 that came with the GSX1400. I prefer the V47, much easier to lock/unlock, maybe that's because the E52 is clapped out  :018:

Look at the Shad expandable box. I had a mate demonstrate his and decided its my next purchase. Nice sized box in compressed mode and super big when needed. The way forward!  :084:

Another givi man here.. mostly because I scooped a couple of good deals, especially on the 33lt trekkers with bags  :046:

So I have the 58lt trekker back box & a pair of 33lt side cases (can be used as back box) and a pair of the W900 weightless paniers. This gives me a range that can adapt to suit my long or short trips as well as camping or B&B trips.  :028:
