This new tank bag is totally different from its predecessor! The basic form was optimally adapted to the tank of the V-Strom、 then a new、 improved design was created. Instead of an outer pocket on the back side、 there are now two zippered pockets on the side where any small items which may be needed quickly can be stored. Reinforced sides keep the tank bag in shape even when it is empty. Gloves、 ski masks or kidney belts can be secured easily with a reflective elastic strap on the side. A surrounding zipper can quickly increase the bag’s 12 litre capacity to about 17.5 litres. The tank bag can be removed quickly for refueling、 and it can be used as a knapsack or shoulder bag with the strap included with the delivery. A carrying handle makes it easier to handle off the bike. Of course、 a removable map pocket is included to hold maps up to A4 size (28x32cm).
