Please recommend a good mid to large tank bag for KTM 1190 adv

I went and got one with magnets - silly me. Obviously it didn't work.

Any recommendations from your experience for a good mid- large tank bag would be appreciated. Thanks.

Is the powerparts bag no good. A quick search On Google shows the companies that have made them. No shortage of them.

The KTM one is small but perfectly formed. Not sure there's room for a mid to large tank bag - any wider would hang over the sides of the tank, any taller would be like a skyscraper sitting on jelly.....

I'm using my old KTM tank bag from the days of my old 2003 950 Adventure... except I had to cut a 100mm hole in the base pad so I could refuel. I have an upholsterer sewing an edging around the fuel filler hole as we speak. The bag is a bit faded and worn looking when mounted on my brand new shiny 1190 but once the bike cops a coat of dust and dirt who'll notice!

So, if you are looking for a tank bag for either the 990 or 1190 the aftermarket might be a little cheaper but the correct KTM Powerparts item for either bike will fit perfectly and blend nicely too so IMO, that's the best option.

Thanks. I saw the KTM bag, very pricey and wanted to make sure this is the best choice before forking out for it.

Thanks. I tend to trust the opinions of those who have used them rather than what is advertised. Had a look on google and various sites, wasn't conclusive for me.

I bought one from Wolfman, an Explorer Lite.
I am very happy with it; let me try to find a photo for you.

Chose the KTM tank bag made for the 1190. Fits perfectly. Only two comments:

A) when you go to refuel you have to unclip it which is a pain - if there was a cut away for the fuel port all you'd have to do is unzip the bag from the base

B) the pocket nearest you is great to put coins or notes making till booths a much more efficient process. What's missing is some Velcro to hold the handle down so it doesn't impede the opening of those zipper and mesh pockets.


Looks great plenty of space and shaped beautifully. KTM you missed some details that would make that bag close to perfect.

Touratech

following a 1600Km tour with the KTM PP Tankbag that I bought with the bike I was afraid the PP part was not up for the job and needed something better and faster to remove for adding fuel. Got the Touratech Ambaretto EXP Rally in White/Orange and used that bag for a 4800km trip through Eastern Europe.
Can only recommend that bag - worked flawless even in demanding road conditions.

I have the SW Motech bags connection that I used on my Multi, Explorer and will put on the 1190 when the tank ring arrives.
Very easy to use and remove when refuelling etc. They have a large range of sizes too.

I took the base to a commercial embroidery shop, they cut out a larger "divot" to clear the fuel port and restitched the opening.
One other issue is the zipper to remove the bag from the base should be on the BAG, not on the BASE. It makes it a LOT harder to get the dang thing lined up.
(I should read up on how to post the pictures again...)
