great bag, a bit small
I installed the bag on my 2003 Honda VFR800. I was looking for a medium-sized bag for an upcoming tour, i didn't need a big one since my bike has the factory saddlebags.I liked the streamined styling and it fit well on the VFR's tank with it's raised center section. I checked the dimensions before ordering and it seemed perfect, but when i got it, it seemed a bit on the small side. I don't know why they call it XL...Anyway, it performed well on a 1800 mile roundtrip from Long Island NY to Quebec and back. I used it to carry a tire repair kit, first-aid kit, spare gloves, spare faceshield,a 7-oz bottle of Plexus, microfiber cleaning cloths, tire pressure gauge, small flashlight, camera, and phone . I discarded the enclosed rain cover since it took up quite a bit of space in the front section, and never missed it,, even after riding 30 miles or so in a moderate rain. The magnets stick really well and once installed it never budged. Also, after the trip there was no sign of paint damage from the magnets. The only problem was one broken fabric zipper pull, no big deal. Overall this bag is pretty good, i just wish it was 20% bigger.

This product fits perfectly on my 2012 Ninja 650. My only complaint is that the bag is a little small to be considered an "XL." Other than that its durable and stays in place nicely. Revzilla was a wonderful company to purchase from as they provided excellent customer service and very expidited delivery!

Nice tank bag but kinda small
I expected it to be a bit larger than it was but it will be helpful for those extras you want to take with you and don't want to carry a backpack. The contstruction is good quality and the carry strap makes it great when your have your hands full. Overall decent for the price.

Exactly what I wanted
I needed a narrow tank bag that would fit on my Honda NT. The Manta XL is a perfect fit, seems well made (I'll know more in a year or two), secures sturdily with the magnetic wings tucked into the bottom pocket, and was a good value. Just what I wanted.

The Bag For the Average Commuter
I have this bag on my 97 Suzuki gsf600 and it's convenient, functional and impressive. Great bang for the buck and I'm really impressed with the material and quality (so far)!

Pretty small, but still worth it.
Materials are of high quality and the pack is well layed out. Magnets keep it firmly secure, even at 120+ mph. Easy access to cell phone pocket while in motion ( I put my EZpass in it). My only issue is that it is VERY small. You can fit about one pair of shoes worth of stuff in the main compartment before its full.
