    Finally arrived: New Givi EA116 tank bag designed for the NC

    After a 2+ month backorder wait, I just received the new Givi EA116 tank bag from Twisted Throttle. It's designed to fit 2016+ NC700X/NC750X. It fits securely, looks good and detaches quickly so I can easily take my "stuff" into a restaurant, etc. I'm not a fan of panniers, so this new Givi combined with my Cortech tail bag is an ideal combination.

    Canít quite tell from the video or the pictures; can you still put the key in and pop the rear seat to gas up without unbuckling the tank bag? And can the frunk be opened with the bag attached?


    Iím supposed to respect my elders, but itís getting harder and harder for me to find one now ..

    Red: Yes, and yes! Full access to fuel/frunk lock, and frunk opens as usual with bad attached. :-)

    Will the bag fit inside the frunk, for when you are off the bike and don't want to carry it around?

    Twisted Throttle still shows the EA116 as out of stock.

    I had filled out their "E-mail me when back in stock" form last month, but nothing...

    Silver: Well, if you SQUISH the Givi bag, I guess it would fit inside the frunk. I plan to keep stuff in both locations (frunk and tank bag). Yes, I saw Twisted Throttle as "out of stock" too. I ordered/paid, then a month or so later... voila! It arrives!

    You can see the new Givi tank bag in this photo from my Dana Point ride today. Secure at 80+ mph speeds. Easy to access water bottle at red lights, etc. (Before this I used to leave my frunk ajar/unlocked for water bottle access. Now the frunk stays closed/locked.)

    I think I'll try ordering one. I noticed the weight limit sticker on top of the frunk...
    Is that on the ridiculous side or what?

    Go Rovers-
    What size tailbag is that?
    I was looking at the 22 liter Cortech bag today but didn't get it, as it also has a weight limit that seems low. 11 pounds! I'm sure I could push that a little.
    Need something to hold 6 bottles of wine that won't fall off the side when I lean when cornering.

    +1 on the EA116! It's been working great for me too.
