Hepco & Becker Royster C-Bow Side Cases Review for webBikeWorld

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was taking a look at the new Hepco & Becker Orbit side cases to review for webBikeWorld.com. The plan was to install these on our friend Johnny Jarvis’ anniversary edition Yamaha XSR 900. Unfortunately there were some differences with the rear turn signals between the USA and European market versions of the XSR 900 that prevented the Orbit cases from mounting.

All was not lost though. Hepco & Becker decided to send us a set of their semi-rigid Royster side cases to go on the C-Bow mounting system we already installed on the XSR. These bags installed without any clearance issues and the yellow accents on them look good against the backdrop of the black and yellow livery of the XSR 900.

The Royster bags and the C-Bow system are a good choice for those looking to add extra storage to their ride. The C-Bow system has a smaller, less noticeable “footprint” than many other luggage mounting systems and the locking mechanism is very simple, yet solid.

Hepco Becker Announces Orbit Side Case – Review Coming Soon

NOTE: The Orbit cases would not fit the American market version of the XSR900 and we were unable to do the full review. We ended up reviewing the Royster cases which did fit on the XSR900.

Hepco Becker recently took the wraps off of their new Orbit side cases and I’ve got a set here for review for webBikeWorld right now. These new cases mount using H&B’s C-Bow luggage system which is a low visibility luggage carrier system designed to not detract from the looks of a motorcycle when the bags are not mounted.

The Orbit side cases are the first hard luggage units for use with the C-Bow system which has up until now consisted of soft bags and semi-rigid cases. Later today we’ll be installing the C-Bow system and the Orbit side cases on Johnny’s Yamaha  XSR900 with a full review for webBikeWorld following shortly.  Until the review is ready, you can have a look at some of the studio photos I took last night to whet your appetite.
