    Yo - Has anyone used a set of the KTM Touring Cases, looking for a general review and also any pictures of the cases on the bike. Thx!

    Those cases are 1250$ by themselves…no racks, no mounting plates. You can do better. You can do better for less too.
    If you’re set on them, then kindly disregard what I just said.

    Reason I like them are they mount quickly, and the rack is unobtrusive when off. Would like to see them in a bike first, he’ll even ktm doesn’t seem to have any promo photos out there that I could find.

    Give it some time and you'll be able to pick them up dirt cheap. Just like the H&B Gobi pannier on the 950/990.

    Sherloc, did you find any more info on these? I really like them and need lockable hard case not soft luggage. Munn has them on their sight for $850.

    No further info, $850 is a decent price.

    I had a set similar to this on my Tracer 900GT I believe made by Givi. While it was very convenient to be rackless when not in use and fit effortlessly on the bike when needed, the side opening made them so frustrating to use. Trying to load into the left case with the bike on its side stand was especially frustrating. I ended up with ordering some inner bags that fit into the cases so that I could put everything in those and then just put the bags in but it was still not idea. In the end I swapped out the OEM cases for Givi top-loading Trekker cases and quick-release racks, which is a much better setup.

    I have a set of Givi Trekker cases from my last bike, so I bought the S W Motech removable racks. They are easy to mount and easy to load and have the flip down easy access flap at the top which is nice for things you want to access easily. They also come in black.

    Despite the horrible side opening, isn't the benefit of the KTM cases that they sit closer and tighter to the bike since the right one hugs the exhaust, and also don't require a traditional pannier frame.

    I put a set on my 890 Adventure and after 2 road trips I’m pleased with them. They look a little big for the bike but hold a lot. They cause no issues when getting on or off(I have 30” inseam) and are good in heavy winds. Come with netting so your stuff stays in place when you open the bags which is handy. Really have no complaints.

    Being as they open sideways, can they be left open whilst full loaded or would loads in the open door part them likely break/damage the hinges?

    Any photos of them on from the rear so we can see how tightly they fit to the bike?

    Did you have any problems setting up the locks? I set up one of the locks and put it in. The key will turn but I can't open the case. The button will press down but nothing happens. I haven't put the lock in the other case. It doesn't open but I don't know if the lock has to be in to open it.
