Tank Bag- Elephant, Black
Can be fitted to many BMW models (See Applications tab above)
This tank bag has been carefully designed, utilizing more than 25 years of experience in tank bag design. We have developed an entirely new attachment system that is both secure and user friendly. A model specific base plate is first installed onto the bike and then the tank bag can be quickly attached by means of an inserted flap and a single, oversized clip. Installation and removal can be carried out with one hand and even while wearing gloves.
For those who own more than one BMW motorcycle, it is now possible to have one tank bag with multiple base plates, so that you can quickly and easily move the tank bag from one bike to the other.
Very important ordering information:
The tank bag is sold separately from the base plate!
