Givi XS308 Tanklock Tankbag

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.

Features:

  • Water-resistant zips
  • Made from 1200D nylon with PU inserts
  • Expandable
  • Reflective inserts
  • Rain cover in fluorescent material
  • Weatherproof internal compartment to store the rain cover
  • Additional protection against dampness
  • Removable tablet-holder
  • Cable port
  • Handle and shoulder-strap for easier transportation
  • Removable side and front pockets that can be converted into a waist-bag
  • 20L capacity
  • 13.7"L x 11"W x 7.8" to 9"H

Note: The Easylock fitting system requires a Givi Bike Specific Flange (sold separately).

Best value going
I bought this to replace a 7 year old Touratech tankbag. I needed pockets, room, and the ability to run wiring is nice (but you can cut a hole in any bag).

What sold me were the little touches--fluorescent green rain cover, waterproof zips on the outer pockets, interior access flap on the map pocket (stuff always fell out of my Touratech's), and the iPad/map cover (which I will probably never use, but you never know...it's a neat idea, and I'm a proponent of neat ideas). That, and the mounting system, an affordable version of the SW Motech mounting system, without the outrageous SW Motech price. Time will tell if I got what I paid for with that, but I don't do a lot of offroad, so that shouldn't be a problem. The inner bag is great--use it if you want, fold it down if you don't. It's a semi-rigid design, which is nice--not a lot of bag rolling around on top of my tank. Also, 20 liters of storage seems to be just about right for me. Looks nice on my R1150GSA as well.

It's a versatile bag for the price. I'll be a return customer if it lasts me three years--option 2 was a Wolfman Expedition. Everything else was too small or too expensive. We'll see.

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.

This is my second Givi Tank Bag
My first bag lasted almost two years, and the top zippers broke within a week of each other. However, the first bag lasted for 15,000 miles of hard mostly dirt riding, so I felt I got my money's worth. I looked at some of the other quick disconnect tank bags before I bought this one a second time, but I really like this tank bag, so purchased it again.

I made a couple of changes to both tank bags to enhance functionality. First, I immediately cut off the front strap of the new bag, as I never used it on the first bag and eventually cut it off. The tank mount keeps the bag firmly in place, even on trail crashes, so the front strap is not necessary in my opinion. On the new bag, I just cut off the strap before I ever used it.

Second, the tank bag comes with a water proof cover that works great, even in pouring down rain that lasts all day. As a result, I don't see any reason to have the gray the water resistant draw string cover on the inside of the bag. On the first bag, I originally put everything under the inside cover, but this just made everything difficult to access, so I tucked the inside cover to the sides and put everything on top. However, I never again used the inside cover, as I use the water proof bag cover when it rains, so the inside cover just gets in the way of accessing the small zippered pocket on the inside of the bag, which is where I keep my registration/insurance info, as well as other small items that seem to get lost in the bottom like my air pressure gauge and extra key. So, on my second bag, I used a razer blade to cut out the inside water resistant cover before the first use. Much, much better. Quite frankly, Givi should add a zipper to this inside cover so it can be removed if not needed or not wanted.

Since I bought this tank bag a second time, I think it's totally worth the purchase. Other riders lust after my quick disconnect system, as they bought the wrong bag the first time around...

Fantastically Huge Tankbag
I was going back and forth over the decision to buy a tankbag and once I decided I needed one, I had to figure out which one to buy. After reading numerous reviews, product descriptions and watching Revzilla's video reviews, I landed on this one. I don't know what the opposite of buyers remorse is but I totally have that. It is huge and the install of the tank ring couldn't have been easier. It is easy to remove to fuel up and literally holds almost everything. I doubt I would EVER wear the "fanny pack" because it is totally ridiculous but the pockets attached to the tankbag are great for small stuff like keys, cash, pokemon etc...

Excellent product.
After looking a several tank bags for my Multistrada 1200, I decided to buy the Givi bag. Overall I have been very pleased with quality, ease of attaching and detaching the bag and the size. The bag is large enough and fits the multistrada tank perfectly. Looks good too. Haven't tested in rain yet but I am sure it will do just fine. Everything on the bag seems to be good quality. Very happy with the purchase.

Easily on and offable, the bag could use a tweak, though.
On recommendation from a friend I ordered this bag and received it yesterday. It's well made and robust, takes less than five minutes to install and the click on - click off feature is secure and confidence inspiring, but the bag has its weaknesses.

The see through pocket on top is great for maps, phones, pens, etc., but access is only available through opening the bag, quick access - a zip on the side maybe - would make it enormously more useful. Turning to the tablet/map holder which has external access resolves the issue, but it clips on in such a way that you can't open the bag with it in place, which is an odd design choice.

The inner drawstring bag is an act of weirdness I don't fully understand, it just seems to take up space, add an extra level of difficulty to getting things in and out of the bag, and seems to serve no useful purpose. Maybe I'll cut it out.

On the whole it's a good, nice looking, usable piece of kit, and I'm sure I'll get used to it, but my KTM bag (which it replaces due to the zip to the base wearing out after seven years use) was better designed in terms of functionality. Or maybe I'm just nitpicking as I compare the new with what I'm used to.

I'll keep using it and am sure it will serve me well for a few years.

On the whole I would recommend it if you are looking for a quick release tankbag, but if that feature is not a primary criteria for you then you can certainly find bags that are easier to use and better thought out.

If I could just find a way to move the bag's attachment over to my old bag...

Awesome Tank Bag!
I have installed this Tank Bag on my 2014 Yamaha Super Tenere with ring part # BF05 . It fits perfectly over the tank. It does not obstruct the view of the instrument cluster nor does it interfere with the steering. I like the three zipped pouches around the bag. I store my electronic devices, chargers, sunglasses in the pockets etc. In addition to the map pockets, it comes with a separate tablet/iPad holder.
The tank lock mechanism is the easiest on-off system I have seen. The interior is quite spacious as it is and its expandable too. Ideal size for day trips if you don't like riding with panniers. Stays steady at any speed.
Highly recommend!

Givi XS308
I had been searching or a tank bag for some time and couldn't swallow the $400 for some of the other options on different sites. When I found the XS308 it was 1/2 the cost of the other bag I was looking at and, lets face it, does the same thing. For me the design and shape are a great match for my 09 BWM R1200GS. At full lock my handle bars to touch the fanny pack thing velcroed to the outside. I also Rox raisers that move my bars up and back. If I didn't have the raiser or removed the fanny pack, it wouldn't touch at all. The tank lock system is stupid simple and rock solid. I was worried because it looked a little light weight, but I was wrong. The bag is not going anywhere once you lock it on. The pass through for wires is also very nice. I'm in the process of wiring it up now. The rain cover is Hi-Viz yellow and I love Hi-Viz :) Over all this bag is very very nice and a great value compared to what you can spend.

My nit-picks are a few but they are nit-picky. The internal baffle thing with a draw sting is meant to help keep things dry, but it takes up a lot of room. I'm temped to cut it out if I don't use it. There is no internal organization, but no bag really offers this. It would be great if there were pockets for phones, cameras, tools and so on. Very thing just ends up at the bottom. I'm sure I'll be able to find something a local big-box store to fix the issue. Lastly ... the fanny pack .... meh. The pockets are very small. I'm still not sure what I would put in them. Maybe insurance cards, registration docs, gum, breath mints, a leather-man or something very small. They seem kind of useless as it. There are companies that make pouches, pockets, holsters and other useful items for velcro vests. I may look into those items for something more useful.

Great construction
Haven't had a chance to tour with it (the day i put it on my bike for a test ride, I lost 2nd gear). Will be touring with this bag in early April. The construction of the bag is top notch though! install is very easy. Wish they make some kind of locking system for theft prevention. Great product, worth the money.
