This is my setup: Hepco Royster bags, with a SW-Motech rear rack and top case (top case not installed on the pictures)

The SW motech rear rack is very well made and integrates perfectly with the Hepco C-frame mounting.

I also have the Givi 3D604 tank bag with the quick mount (just love that thing)

Now that I have a larger windscreen and SW Motech rear rack coming to me, I might have to look at these. Would love to get back in to some long distance touring but lack of luggage (I have the Powerparts tank bag already) keeps me close to home.

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 have the OEM side cases and and a nice aluminum top box. When I don't want them on the bike, I take them off. It's nice to have choices. :D

Sorry I have been delayed in posting these. I'll snap some more in day light with the bike is out of the garage. The top case holds either two full sized helmets or in my situation a helmet, jacket, pants and some extra room for small items. The side cases are a little small but you can easily put a jacket or a pair of pants in. I keep a tire patch kit in one with room to spare.

Thanks for posting! I like the side bag set up. Are you happy with the quality?

Quality is top notch and I am very happy with the purchase. The bike is my every so often work commuter and I am setting it up for adventure riding on my days off. I wanted hard cases which were waterproof and these fit the bill.

Hepco & Becker is now selling their C-Bow saddlebag carrier and their Alurack top case carrier for the '17 models. I have ordered both along with the Orbit sidesaddle hard cases and the Orbit 54 top case. Once they are in and installed I'll post pics.
Very expensive carriers ... This is much cheaper and I have ordered only top case carrier for this time, so later I will add photos ... KTM DUKE 390 of the year 2017 Case fittings - Shad - Engineered for riding

I looked at those, but I wanted waterproof hard case sidesaddles. So yeah the Hepco and Becker are expensive, but they were also the only ones available at the time of purchase (maybe still).

I bought some leather type saddle bags on ebay. Only £15 and good strong quality. The Shad bags are too wide and are only rated at 2kg anyway.

Selling my Hepco & Becker C-Bow Carriers and rear Alurack on this forum here.
Didn't you just buy these, like, a month ago? May I ask why you are selling? Did you find something that works better?
Traded the Duke in on a BMW G310GS. The bags worked great with the Duke and I had no complaints. I am keeping the bags and using them on the baby GS. Selling the brackets that were on the Duke.
