The only problem I have when thinking about "scooters" is what vehicles people are calling "scooters". To me the term applies to Likker Cycles not the Bergman style ones. To me if it gets registered, insured and taxed it's not a scooter.

So you're saying a Bergman 650 is a step thru motorcycle or what exactly? The manufacturer's call them scooters.

I could see myself on a Bergman, weather protection, lots of storage. With the 15" tubless wheel upfront and a 14" rear tube? I would have to wonder what the turn in is like. I guess I would have to test drive.... but I ain't there yet!

It would cost them pennies more to offer a complete package.
I have a 2019 Versys 1000LT SE and the bags are the same as the Ninja 1K. Size is 28 liters. 2 liters smaller than the my 2014 FJR. Abit of an Odd shape. I have to carry my laptop in the top box because of it.
