This is not exactly what you are looking for, but I have a 2016 F & this set up works for me.
A Honda OEM tail-bag which I bought through motosport.com & a pair of SW Motech Blaze panniers which came through
twistedthrottle.com photos below. The panniers & tail-bag can work together although I do not have an image showing both on at the same time.

I think the best looking way to put a luggage rack on a sport bike is something I saw once on the street that didn't know how was done until I searched for it on youtube and found another couple examples, so I can tell it's just DIY: you need to modified the OEM pillion/passenger seat making holes through it in order to attach and fix a standar givi or whatever luggage brand rack box. I think you must see it for yourself because i can't describe it correctly with my english! As soon as I can I 'll put a link here so you'll be able to see it.
I don't want to go this way with my bike because I also have swmotech blaze paniers as side bags, very easy to put and remove without hardware installed on the bike apart a discret piece attached to the passagers footpegs, and for the moment with these bags and a backpack I don't need to carry more things.

Question about blaze panniers & tail bag working together, I though the velcro straps of the swmotech panniers might limit somehow the way the tail bag attaches to the passenger seat, so instead I was thinking in adding a swmotech drybag, above the passenger seat and velcro of the panniers, because it's multiple straps would allow to be fixed in many different ways to differents parts of the bike and panniers. Plus there are various sizes choices drybags and even they can be stacked one above others.

The OEM tailbag & Blaze panniers do work together easily. At most I have to let out the tailbag straps a few cm to accommodate the wide velcro pannier strap. When touring, see my original photo, I use a boating dry bag for my sleeping bag etc. & the tail bag stays at home.

I also have fitted the SW Motech Blaze panniers which I took off my old Yamaha, brackets fit the rear footrest brackets exactly so it is a good one. When not using, I clip the s/s rods out. I also fitted a Givi rear carrier rack which will take my 34ltr top box.
When it eventually stops raining I will post some pics.
