Overview

Tank bags provide storage space that has direct accessibility to the rider (unlike side cases and top cases).
They typically offer small to medium capacity (5L-21L).
Some tank bags provide power connection, therefore allowing electrical devices to be connected (e.g. GPS, cell phones, etc).
There are other common accessories such as map holders.

Tank bags connect to the tank in one of the following methods:
1. Screws - Connecting to the fuel tank ring using screws
2. Straps - Attaching to the fuel tank using straps
3. Magnetic - Attaching to the fuel tank using magnetic pads (Note: All V-Stroms have metal fuel tanks)

Straps and Magnetic connections can cause scratches to the tank's paint due to their direct contact.

Bags Connection

Bags Connection (SW Motech) offer a large set of tank bags that fit the V-Strom models.
The quick locks bags connect to a tank ring adapter, that connects to the fuel tank using the OEM screw holes.

Tank Ring Compatibility

The tank ring adapter has to be purchased separately from the tank bag.
