Great fit for my '12 Vstrom 650 I recently did a fly & ride from Boston to Dallas, then rode to Phoenix. Sure, Givi products aren't cheap, but they sure do look and work great. I saw pics of the V35's on another Vstrom and liked the look so I bought them. I had them sent to the guy's house that I was buying the bike from, which he promptly and easily installed :-) I paired the V35's up with the V47 top case and they worked out great. I loaded everything up and proceeded to ride 250 miles in a 40 degree rain to my hotel for the night. Everything crammed inside was bone dry and secure. I removed everything and brought it all inside the hotel to dry out. The next 2 days I rode another 900 miles to my final destination and the bags did not disappoint! The only downsides I could find were 1) Price of course 2) The V35's can take 2 hands to latch and lock if it's a tight load and 3) If loading them OFF the bike, the clamshell will not always stay open, but they do ON the bike. NBD. Would I buy them again? Absolutely! Next is trying to fit a light kit in them or at least some good reflective material. February 3, 2015
Nice cases AND look great on the bike! Pros - Easy install - Well crafted (quality, seals, elastic strap) - Nice hardware (latches & locks) - Look great Con - Not quite as big as expected September 1, 2014
Problems Manufacturing Defects Several quality issues with these bags. The internal rubber strap that holds the cover from opening too far was broken straight from the Givi packaging. I see now on other forums that may be ‘common’ quality issue. The small screw was not installed correctly during assembly. The replacement bag had small, but noticeable scratches on the surface. Now after only a couple weeks of garage storage at room temp., I noticed the Givi logo is beginning to separate from the cover (both bags). It appears the adhesive is defective. For the $550 plus cost of these bags, I really expect better quality control. Very very disappointing Givi! May 27, 2014
Easy access with a lot of capacity Great bags for the money. I debated many options and went with these mostly do to cost. I like them more than I though I would. Fantastic capacity for storage. Easy on and off the bike with the key and a push of a button. Easy to get into with the key and a ouch of a button. Nicely made and seemingly durable. I like the increased visual foot print from behind with the red reflectors . I would caution on forcing them closed. If it will not close easily don't force it closed because it can make the case very difficult to open. May 12, 2014
good quality, better than average value This review focuses mostly on construction/durability, as it was my foremost concern when ordering. ** also very important note, there is no rack kit that will fit these bags to my bike (2012 CB1000R). I'm fabricating my own. Just want to leave this note in case another CB owner reads and assumes this is a bolt-on job. Not the case. Sorry CB owners - bolt on options are limited to soft luggage. Hard luggage = custom work on this badboy. There are no shops in town that even keep this kind of inventory in stock, so I was never able to touch and feel the product before ordering. As a result, I did a lot of watching reviews, install videos, and reading about people's experiences about various hard luggage products. Still, it's pretty hard to tell the difference between cheap plastic and high quality ABS on a youtube video. Even after all the research, I was apprehensive paying so much for a set of hard luggage not knowing the real quality and durability of the product. For real durability, I have faith in certain brand names like Pelican, but had 0 first-hand experiences with Givi. Ultimately, I wound up choosing this particular set specifically on the curved aesthetic (from the back), which seems to stand alone amongst competing products. After all that, I can say this: do not worry about the durability or quality of the product. I was impressed by every aspect of the craftsmanship of this product. The outer shell is firm, thick, and well built. The material resists marring, the lids close and latch firmly, and the mounting hardware is built heavy enough to last (I'm pretty critical of welding, and the racks are top notch). They've also nailed down the finish, with important details like rubber grommets for where the luggage makes contact with the rack. I will mention on install, that (at least with the toprack hardware) there could have been simpler hardware. Rather than engineer a single bracket, they give you a bag of small parts that need to be assembled into what could have ultimately been one piece. The result is a confusing installation at first, but also one of those jobs where you wish you had 3 hands and 5 opposable thumbs. March 31, 2014
Givi V35 on NC700X I had the V35 side cases on my NC700X for over 2000 miles. I usually commute and did some touring with my wife. The installation is easy and the looks are good. I had a small crash and my bike landed on one side. Since there is a colored plate part that can be changed with screws, just change the plate, voila no crash marks. You don't feel like there's 70 litres of side cases when you are commuting or touring both from weight and aerodynamic perspectives. June 25, 2013
Give V35 sidecases I ride a VStrom 650 and I chose these bags because they are contoured well to this bike and sit low unlike some of the other bags which are higher than the seat. June 3, 2013
Excellent Quality!!! The quality, styling, ease of use surpass my expections. Their bags just keep getting better with time and I can honestly say that GIVI has spoiled me rotten! April 29, 2013

Corey F: I have gone up to 135 with them for a short period of time. And sustained about 90 to 95 for a couple hours through Montana. I don't know the recommended speed, but they seemed fine at high speeds. Oct 5, 2013

Corey F: Mph. Oct 9, 2013
Javier V: The manufacturer recommends a maximum speed of 120 KPH (or 74 MPH for those of us in non-metric places) at full load. This is stated on a sticker inside the cases, and is listed in the owners manual for the cases. I think I remember the same being stated in the booklet that came with the SW-Motech quick disconnect mounting rack system that I am using.

But, to add to the personal experiences that the previous three posters shared ... I too have had mine up into the triple digits for brief stints, and have cruised at 90 MPH for extended periods of time - with the bags fully loaded, with no problems.

A shopper asked: Hi! I have those Givi's and since I'll be going on/offroad (depending on the available roads) in Kazkshtan, Turmenistan, Tajikstan.... I would like to know if someone already had a crash with them and how they sustained the crash? Just would like to know, so if this is not a good panniers for that trip just to know on time. I know aluminum ones are way better but would like to know if they are good enough for such a trip/road?
P.S.: I bought them before even knowing I'd make such a trip ;-)
Cheers, Stojan

Bart B: I have not crashed them....
With that being said...
The Givi construction is actually quite good. I would expect that if you were to crash them though (especially off-road) that they may still remain closed but you will likely have to carry them home.
Plastic cases and crashing is not something one can predict survivabity.
If you think it is likely that the bike is going to go down with the cases attached I would look into a different product. These are too expensive to gamble on.

Chris L: I had a set on my V-strom. It went down in mud and dirt a few times at low speeds and they were fine. I would suspect they would not fair so well falling on rocks or at high speed in the dirt. Jan 6, 2014

Mike C: we had these installed on a 2012 Ninja 650 and they work beautifully. they really look well on the bike as well. My wife gets more compliments on her Ninja 650 with the side cases than i do on my New BMW. We have done many road trips and have yet to have a problem with the side cases we are very pleased with them. Apr 3, 2014

A S: Do you remember what mounting hardware you purchased for these bags on the Ninja 650? I'm looking to do the same for my 650 and want to make sure I buy the correct mount. Thanks! Aug 12, 2014
Steve D asked: Hi, I would like to buy a set of the Givi V35 monokey cases for my bike and wanted to check if they will fit. I want to mount them to my 2007 Suzuki V-Strom (dl650) and currently have the Givi V46 topcase (and topcase mount) installed on my bike. What brackets would I need to mount these side cases? Would the new brackets have any effect on the current topcase mount?

Robert S: Yes the Givi V35 Sidecases will fit a 2007 DL1000 with the GIVI PL528 SIDECASE FITMENT KIT RACK - SUZUKI V-STROM 1000 (02-13). Keep in mind, these are the only Givi Sidecases that fit these racks.

I replaced a set of the Givi Soft Bags with the V35’s on my 2003 DL1000. The soft bags are a better choice if you do a lot of off road riding. I like the hard bags because I do mostly street riding and longer road trips. Your gear is secure and dry in all conditions. They do widen your stance to about 40”. Think twice about how tight a space you want to ride through or how close you get the the gas pump before leaning her over on the side stand.

I haven’t seen another Sidecase out there that looks as good on my DL1000.
