with an exhaust getting in the way on one side of the bike, symmetrical racks aren't feasible. the end result would be that the non-exhaust side rack would need to be moved outwards. and the makers seem keen on making the racks as narrow as possible.
you can have near enough symmetrical panniers, but then you're required to have one smaller than the other.. with a cut-out so it fits 'around' and close to the exhaust. Hepco&Becker Xplorer for example. 40L and 37L
The alternative is to have different size cases, with the exhaust side being narrower. so the width each side is near enough identical. but viewed from the rear looks asymmetrical. for example the Givi outbacks. you can have a 48L on one side and 37L on the other. with just a 2cm difference between the two.
