Tank bags?

I'm looking to buy a tank bag. The ones I used previously were magnetic, and obviously that is a no-go on the Hyper.

I was looking at the strap-type models, and they all seem OK, but I wonder how well they fit given that the Hyper's gas cap isn't flush to the tank as it is on most sport bikes.

So, chime in and let me know what experience you have with them!

You could consider the official Ducati one (Ducati Hypermotard/Hyperstrada Tank Bag 96780111A)

As you can imagine, its not a cheap one, but surely will fit well.

Supr,

I fitted a tank bag to the tail of my Hyper just to be different; check it out in the "What'd you do to your Hyperstrada today?" thread if you're interested.

I should add, it is for while riding 2-up! Thanks for the suggestion, though!

As for Duc tank bag, yes it probably does fit well, but $261 is quite a lot for a tank bag.

The factory bag looks and works great on my white 'strada. Maybe not so good a match to a red one.

I bought mine with the bike, so I got a discount. You could always ask...

PS Hey guys, let us know exactly what you have in your signature or somewhere. Saves the rest of us guessing!

Wolfman Luggage makes several different styles, you might find something there.

I have a bunch of old tank bags, including a Wolfman. The problem with all of them is that they cover the fuel cap. The bag has to be removed or at least flipped back; the Ducati bag clips to a base pad that stays in place. So I would look for that feature.

I'm thinking about the Enduristan Sandstorm tankbag. Approx. Same Price as the ducati-one, but waterproof without cover and with some great features. As i'm lucky to have a Dealer for those in my town, i'll Try it as soon as my hyperstrada arrives.

I put a wolfman on mine. It fits great and large enough to put all your goodies in.
