The Givi TankLock system for tank bags promotes the elimination of all kinds of straps, or magnetic limpets, previously used to fasten the bag to the bike. Thanks to a small ring that is installed on the tank cap, incorporated with the unique structure of the base of the bag, the bag can now be attached by simply aligning it to the ring and pressing lightly until you hear the classic "click."
Equally easy is the removal of the bag; to release it you can just pull the red lever located in the base. The mounting rings are sold separately and vary by the fuel cap type, and you need to check the compatibility list to verify which ring is for use with your model of motorcycle.
Made from1200D nylon with PU inserts
Rain cover in fluorescent material
Weatherproof internal compartment to store the rain cover
Additional protection against dampness
Handle and shoulder-strap for easier transportation
Removable side and front pockets that can be converted into a waist-bag
Works great for 2012 V-Strom 650
Fits the 2012 V-Strom 650 very well. No interference when turning stock handlebars (stock bar, no risers) from lock to lock. I moved the mounting bracket so the bag would be in the aft-most position. The bag does not crowd the rider (it is not pushed into my chest or belly). Easy to reference whatever map/document is in the map holder while riding.
One negative item to note on the 2012 Strom... when the tank bag is loaded, the drooping rear edge of the bag may contact the top of the tank (the flat black paint). I imagine this will cause damage to the paint over time. On my V-Strom I have installed Tech Specs tank pad kit (the kit with left/right/center pads specific to the 2012 Strom). This solves the problem.
I've just completed a 5000 mile trip with this bag on this bike. Minimal hassle at fuel stops. I think this is as good as it gets. I cut the safety strap off of mine. I rely only on the lock-ring to keep the bag attached. No problems.
I have not tried the rain cover. I can't vouch for how waterproof the tank bag or tank bag with cover are.
Rated 4 of 5 on "durability" because I have only used for 5000 miles.

Looks great, works so so
Bag looks great on my KTM 1190 adventure r but does impede a little bit on the steering even when moved to the rearmost of its three positions. Not enough to be an issue in most situations, though. The construction of the soft parts are sturdy but three out of four screws holding the bag-side attachment ring fell off, one after another, and had to be replaced. After about 5K miles of usage, the bag has started to come detached from the base while riding, especially after rough riding (off-road, wheelies, bumps, etc). The tether strap has become indispensable, and I don't recommend cutting it off, no matter how enjoying it may seem at first. I can't see any obvious ware that explains the attachment issues but it is possible that replacement of the base ring will solve it. Over all, I do recommend the bag because of the reasonable price, clean look, and quick attachment feature for regular touring purposes, but not if you plan to do much off-roading.

Givi XS308 Tanklock Tankbag
This would be a beautiful tank bag for a BMW R1200GS but does not fit the 2008-20012 R1200GS Adventure near as well due to the gas cap location on the larger gas tank of the Adventure model. All of these questions were asked prior to ordering but no one seemed to know the answer. The bag is well thought out in many ways but could use improvements in the water proof cover and the tethering strap is a pain in the backside which I immediately removed. I would also permanently attach the pockets rather than using the belt idea.

After trying out five different bags, I got the XS308. All I can say is that it works out great on my 2007 DL650 Vstrom. Perfect size! I really like the easy-on, easy-off. Takes a few tries to figure out how to get it on, then it's very easy afterwards. Quality is good. Been using it for a couple of weeks...definitely recommended!

Tammy M: Very nice bag but the profile was too high for me and as a woman I couldn't see my motorcycle gauge over the top of the bag so I had to return this. Looks like it had excellent construction though and Revzilla returned the product without issue.Dec 30, 2014
A shopper asked:Hello , I am panning to get this 308 tank bag , my only conccern is if it will fit nicely un my multistrada or it may be to big ? Should i go for the 308 or the smaller 307 model??? ThanksSep 27, 2014
per H:Not sure how the 308 would fit on a multistrada but on my ktm 1190 adventure it looks ok. I got the 308 because of the large size and the clean look with no straps. It does impede a little bit on the steering even when moved to the most rearward position, but not enough to be noticeable in most situations.
However, if you plan any "rough" riding; go with a tank bag with straps. I've had to replace 3 out of 4 screws that secures the tank bag side ring as they unscrewed themselves and fell off. Recently, after a little over 5K miles, the bag has started to come off from the tank ring when riding off road (and wheelies on road), so I'd make sure to always secure it with the strap that goes around the triple tree, or the steering bar.

sergio a:Hola! Depending on what you want to carry on it it could be a bit big. I bought it for a trip around southamerica so I wanted something big enough to carry personal stuff, gloves, gps, camera... I thought it was going to look bigger than it actually does. (I was expecting something very big). It is good looking on my super ten ere. but if you don't need to carry too much stuff go with a smaller one.Oct 1, 2014
Hi Sergio. I am reading you are using the Givi 308 on a Super Tenere. I am contemplating the same bag and I was wondering how it fits on the bike? Does it interfere with the steering, and does the rear part sit on the paint or does it not make contact. I just returned the GIvi 306 since it is way to wide - much wider than the measurements on the Givi website. Have you measured the actual dimensions of the 308? Thanks

Max P:Mine fits awesome on my DL 650 V Strom I had to adjust the bracket so that its its all the way forward but other than that its a nice fit.I really enjoy the fact that I can put my IPad and use GPS while riding. and the great thing about RevZilla is that they have a easy return policy.Sep 28, 2014
A shopper asked:I have a 2014 V-strom 650 with 2" pivoting rox risers. Anyone with one of these tank bags with Rox risers on their V-strom? I am concerned the tank bag will be in the way of the handlebars. Thanks!Mar 3, 2015
terry a:I have a 2012 vstrom. I recently put handlebar risers on.Needed to bring them back toward me a bit and it made all the difference. I also installed this Givi tankbag. I love it. It's big but not too big. Comes off the locking ring in a jiff. I highly recommend this setup. Good luck. TerryMar 3, 2015
Evan S:I have this on a 2012 v-strom 650 with 1" up 1.25" back risers and the bars clear just fine. I did adjust the mounting plate on the bag so it sits as far back on the tank as possible.Mar 3, 2015
A S asked:I was looking at the pictures here compared to Givi's site. The bags don't seem to match up. The bag here has a map cover that looks like its removable and about the size of an iPad. On Givi's site the pics depict a top lid with a zipper pocket. What pictures are correct?Mar 6, 2015
A shopper asked:Has anyone attached an XS308 to a 2013 BMW R1200r? Already have the tanklock for a 3D603 that came with the bike, but wonder whether the tank shape fits this bag well. Thanks.Jan 25, 2015
Rob E:I bought the givi xs308 for my 650 versys and it fits perfectly. I was worried that it might be too big but its a very nice size. I especially like the way it attaches - very positive connection and easy to take off as well. My buddy has a 2011 r 1200 gs and did a fit test on it and would work fine. No issue with the bars hitting it and it sits completely off the tank.Feb 5, 2015
