Has anyone purchased the ducati tank bag? if so, do you have pictures of it installed?

I can never decide if i want one... I get annoyed by backpacks but have always decided on them rather than ruining the lines of a bike with a bag...

I like the curve of that bag better than the DP one for sure, certainly a sleeker design.

Might as well be no underseat storage, I doubt you can get much more than your paperwork in there lol

you can actually get this bag with the charging kit as well. It attaches to the tank ring instead of using magnets. I like that, less prone to scratching the tank

Mine is on order but I did see it on the multistrada. It has a robust/firm base and sit proud of the tank cap by approximately 12mm. The bag does not touch the paint. Mostly useful for phone and wallet and probably a bunch of keys. Could probably fit a 500ml bottle of water in too.

I have an SW Motech bag from previous bikes. They are exceptional quality and very convenient to use. I have a tank ring that fits Ducati bikes (and BMW). I can recommend them.

I think the SW Motech bag is the way to go. All i really need to carry is my wallet, hat, portable batt for bike/phone, and the liner for my jacket. I was thinking about possibly getting the electrics for the bag for charging, but I dont want the wire across the tank all of the time.

I think you can just run a USB cable from the underseat charging outlet through the frame and up to whatever electronics you have in the cockpit area. A few zip ties and it will be invisible except for the part of the cable that exits in front of the tank. Just a solution I've been looking at. BTW, I think the manual says this charging outlet works when the bike is off. My experience is that it doesn't. Ignition needs to be turned on or bike needs to be running. I've been trying to figure out way to make this feature useful...

Regarding the SW Motech: Does the tank ring type 110 evo fit on the SS 939?

Flange type doesnt touch the paint with 2kg's loaded in it. I use my phone for gps in it among other items. Has a transparent cover for the phone and the touch screen still works. Wouldn't recommend if your phone is larger than the samsung S6 because you will struggle to get it in the phone slot. Bag is advertised as 5 liter capacity but I'd say it's 2L. Comfortably fits wallet, phone, keys, and large backup battery. I carry the backup battery for the phone because I don't fancy running a cable from the USB -- just yet anyway.

Red is not usually a color for me - but have to admit your set-up looks stunning!
Thanks for sharing the photo and what you've got on the bike

Rather than the Ducati tank bag, I've been looking at the Givi ST602, cheaper and same sizeish. Givi don't list the supersport yet on their tanklock compatibility chart so would the ducati adaptor ring (Part No 96780371A) work with the Givi bag? Given that the ducati bags are supposed to be Givi bags anyway with a different label?

It's the same tank flange bag as you mentioned. The ducati one is made by Givi but has the ducati label on it. Also they are the same price too so I went for the ducati label because Givi label doesn't belong on my Duc939 :laugh::wink2:

Here the Givi bag is £70 but the Ducati one is £113, they do look different in the pictures too.
Oh, ok. My country they are the same price. I contacted our national Givi distributor and the ducati dealership was the same price. I must add even though all our bike stuff is imported it's odd that we are cheaper than the EU and USA when it comes to ducati bits. Even the red S is the cheapest in south africa based on the info in this forum. Clearly you guys have a higher disposable income and are perhaps more generous with it >:)

@Christm13 phew that's big for what I use the tank bag for. You can fit the wife's shoe collection in there. Happy touring :smile2:
Effectively, my half has a big collection shoes at home not on the bike.:wink2:
This tankbag is relative big and enough for a 4 days trip in spring or summer with miss behind with her small backbag, and enough for swimsuit and sun glasses in Narbonne south west of France.:smile2:

Sounds great, nice long weekends ahead. Have never toured France.In terms of riding in the EU I have toured some of Tuscany Italy, Germany, Portugal, UK and Spain and that was great fun. The roads were fantastic condition with very accommodating cultures. Road condition opinion depends on what you are used to but I felt they were good.
