Luggage on a 2014 bike?
« on: February 17, 2015, 07:07:14 PM »
Ive been told that the topbox is an improved design on the 2014 onwards machines (no zip on the topbox) can anyone confirm this? I am picking up my bike tomorrow but the highlander kit is being retrofitted at the first service, i would just like to know what luggage type I can expect.   Thanks in advance.

Id imagine you should get the zipless topbox, as far as im aware the panniers didnt change.

Don't worry if it also leaks like a sieve...........Honda's technical team have perfected a permanent fix for water in the topbox as a few members can confirm.........

Hi Beamish, a different experience with the zipless top box 2014: We had a weekend with lots and lots of rain and the top box was absolutely waterproof!    :047:
