I think they're pretty much the same pannier, not sure if the attachments at the base are the same though, having had them on my T800 and now the Explorer they certainly look pretty much the same, Givi ones are better for me, but the OEM ones came with the bike and I don't use them often enough to justify changing them.

Yes the boxes are exactly the same, but the fitting kit is different.
My dad has an explorer and I use his pannier. #free   :001:

I used them and the top box on a trip around Ireland last year with the misses on the back and she said it was very comfortable and the pannier did not get in her way.

I don't think the OP is asking about the lopsided (RH side sticking out) aluminium Expedition/Givi panniers. I believe he wants to know if the symmetrical (plastic) Explorer panniers will fit his XRt.  :084:

With the Explorer panniers probably just need the later 'cable' linked swing setup.

Hi, I have the adventure panniers fitted to my 2018 XRT, fitted at point of sale FOC by Plymouth triumph  :152: (I sourced the panniers, top box & hardware from Fowler's for 450 when triumph had the accessory sale) The panniers are generic so you just need the fitting kit.

Hopefully the photo of my Tiger with the luggage fitted works.

This is the first bike I've had with panniers so cant compare them to anything else, I find the bike stable when pressing on, I have tried to provoke some bad behaviour with them fitted to see what the floating arrangement does and all was well with just a self settling motion. They appear to be waterproof too but i did put the contents in Lidl bags just to be sure.



The near side pannier balances the bike when I've my SUP attached to the offside with my adapted brackets.
