    I believe you also get fog lights.

    That being said, I would not recommend anyone go for the Adventure model. There is much better equipment out there than what they offer for an additional $2,200.

    The XT model can be found for $12,000 + DMV fees. Where I bought mine from, there were no added dealer fees, transport fees, or setup fees. And the price was discounted considerably.

    1050 owners be aware i have found bad a fault on the givi airflow AF3117 screen . if you set the bottom screen on its lowest setting the plastic locking arms on the screen foul the two upright pillows that hold the screen and stop the plastic arms from fully locking in position & the top sliding screen can come loose when riding ..

    Standing at 6'2", I never have my lower screen on the lowest setting. In fact, I usually maximize that setting then adjust the top airflow screen up or down.

    I do wonder if some aftermarket accessory manufactures actually fully test their products.
    Givi are mostly great but occasionally some of their stuff is plain odd..

    I love my Givi Airflow. Would buy it again and again. Just adjust accordingly and enjoy the quiet ride.

    Does anyone know the true wet weight of the Adventure version, everything stock but without the panniers on?

    Are you still on the fence with the adventure version vs. the XT model? I would strongly recommend the XT version...

    Thanks for the tip - very helpful. The integrated heated grips for $400 if purchased separately from Suzuki is a bit steep - I was wondering about the quality fog lights, which was also addressed a few posts back. I already have a set of Givi Trekker Outback side cases, so no need for the Suzuki set. I do like the all black Adventure color scheme, but am also liking the white and orange - improves the chances of being seen during the day by cagers.

    I'd be surprised if you don't get seen on a highlighter yellow XT.

    All things considered, look for one of those $12,000 XTs and just mod it on your own. I will be uploading more pics to my build thread that's found in my signature soon.

    Still shopping, yes, I'm but just trying to find out the wet weight with pannier brackets installed.

    An XT supposedly weights 454lbs wet, so is it safe to say pannier brackets and heated grips combined would add 20lbs?

    Yes I suppose it would be about 20-30 lbs for the heated grips, fog lamps, pannier racks, and panniers.
