I aim to buy this bike when I move to Thailand for 8 months per year. However the only luggae I am going to use is a tank bag and my Ventura rear seat bag which expands from 14L to 20L. You don't need to cart much with you on tour there. It's always so hot.

I just don't get it...

The Duke is a back street scratcher - great fun for short journeys round the twisties - it ain't a long distance tourer - imho - if you need a top box / side bags, you prob need a different bike.....

I'd happily do some solo UK touring on mine, anything bigger would just be trading licence losing ability for back road agility.

Granted for two up european touring I'd probably want something else.

Less is more - You can only use 150hp .001% of the time, but you can use 150kg 100% of the time ...........

OK, so I meant the exact opposite of that

Hi. I am from Mumbai India.
Here's the saddle bag I put on my bike. Costs about 3000 INR. About 40 U.S. dollars.
Made by Viaterra. Model: Velox. Made especially for the Duke.

I have the same ones. If I remember correctly it was about 100 bucks with shipping to the US.
