    givi vs oem panniers

    hi!
    i have givi trekker outback aluminium side panniers,
    i fitted these panniers on last three bike i had,
    each side pannier is 37 liter.

    on each bike i changed the mounting rack.
    i choose these because i can adapt to each new bike only changing the mounting struts.

    now with the new 2021 s1000xr,
    i’m tempted to buy oem side panniers, because i like it and these haven’t a mounting strut

    i seen each has 31 liter capacity.

    i’m not sure if do it….

    Get the Givi quick-release racks?   They only take around 1 minute to remove or refit.

    I have the shad panniers on my gen2 - half the price of oem panniers and 36 litres each pannier.

    the racks need some bolt to be screwed

    it is very easy to do - remove BMW rails, add very small Givi parts for the Quick Release fittings. These parts are very discrete on the bikes.

    I have a number of Givi cases, all standard Monokey and mix & match as required. Mostly, I use a 45 litre topbox and a pair of E21 side cases as they are narrow and allow me to filter in traffic.

    Your cases seem the be the more robust CAM cases but there is a quick release kit to use with the rails
