sure, why not? top case are indespensible when touring, at least from my experience and some people especially some euro riders will mount top cases. I certainly wouldn't snap it on if I'm going out and doing some sport riding fo the day tho. :no:

The aftermarket will fix this, not sure why they didn't make it so the K box is usable on the sx

It would be cool to have it was lowered down to passenger spot I never carry passengers so they should have an option so I can lean back and rest my back

a forward facing ventura rack might fit that bill for trips. Can make it a challenge to get on/off tho. I think you can mount a smaller bag tho if you want. For example:

Why not? Aerodynamics. An aftermarket company will make one though.

I hope there is a top case coming soon. Or is there already something on market?? It´s impossible to tour weeks with wifey only with sidebags.. And passengers stays on board much better.
It is ugly, but there is not better solutions..

i guess that the top box is only suitable for city rides, most boxes would be ripped of from the mount.. the stock panniers support up to 299kph see video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVIqt-R0bY4. its in french, but with automatic captions and auto-translation you can understand.
