Looks like the GIVI accessories are in the manufacturing process:

Had 2 test rides of the GTPRO , loved it and ordered one.

Vibes are not that bad. Bike reviews are over-stating the issue. The new engine isn't as smooth as the old one but the vibes are tolerable.  I decided I could live with them (and I hate tingley vibes) .

The mpg from a mix of motorway cruising, scratching around the twisties,  and town work was just over 55mpg. Same as my GS.

The engine is more punchy and sounds better, plus the bike feels light so is more flickable. The brakes are sharper, and the ergonomics and comfort are good too - bars felt a tad closer than the 800 and the screen worked (hooray!). 

The quick-shifter is an absolute delight. Once tried, you wont want to go back.

IMO, these are all worthy changes over the 800 and make it feel a different bike.  It does it for me at least.

Lol it might be a bit easier to keep up with you on the 900 then.

Im with Rocket on this. The great British tradition of running something down. I had a 15 xcx loved it. Got a Rally pro, yes it is a bit vibey but the sound from the engine/exhaust & the punch it has out of the corners more than makes up for it. The handling is much sharper & more nimble. I do sometimes wonder if the doom mongers actually read the piece by the lead engineer about why they made the changes, all made sense to me. As for MCN & the fuel consumption, I'd be interested to know how they got it so low, mines not fully run in yet but I wouldn't be going any quicker if it was, the thing has so much grunt you don't need to rev it. I'm getting 220+ from a tank full!
Anyway I'm delighted with my purchase😉

Dont forget some people pick up vibes more than others so they are a much bigger issue.

I agree however considering the 800 was their best selling bike and vibes can put people off i dont think it the way forward for this bike.
