TOURATECHTANK RUCKSACK BLACK EDITION The tank bag line »Black Edition«, which Touratech developed for the BMW special editions R 1200 GS Triple Black and R 1200 GS Triple Black Adventure, will be extended. Due to major demand there will also be a »Black Edition« tank bag for the F 800 GS. Special EDITIONEDITION Q uality asserts itself, it’s as simple as that to describe the success of the »Black Edition« tank bag line which Touratech developed for the two BMW special editions of the R 1200 GS Triple Black and R 1200 GS Triple Black Adventure. And because the Black Edition tank bags are so successful for the BMW Boxer special editions, which, of course, also fit the conventional GS Boxer, Toura- tech has now created a version for the F 800 GS in cooperation with Kahedo.Toura- tech Sales Manager Martin Wickert sees the success of the »Black Edition« as be- ing based on the well though-out concept, excellent quality and the special fit for the Boxer models. The perfect match of the tank bag with the 1200 GS / Adventure not only relates to the design itself, but also to the many small details which integrate the »Black Edition« into the overall look of the Triple Black.The ma- terials used are dirt-resistant and water-repellent. It is therefore only fitting that the zippers are water-proof. Another benefit is flexibility; in just a few seconds the volume of the tank bag can be increased from 16 litres to 20 litres with a quick pull of a zipper. Other features include an aerodynamic map pocket, a compartment for documents and additional outer pockets.The same features are, of course, included in the»Black Edition«version for the F 800 GS. As an alternative to the black tank bag version, there is also a »Compañero Edi- tion«, which matches the colours of the Touratech motorcycle suit and is also avail- able in the same quality and similar fittings for the R 1200 GS and F 800 GS.Where- as demand determines the production runs of the Black and Compañero variants, the»Blue Edition«will only be available as a limited edition.Matching the BMW 800 GS Trophy and the R 1200 GS which will also be available in blue in 2012, only 100 »Blue Edition«tank bags will be produced internationally in each case. In early 2012,Touratech will introduce a revolutionary concept for the rear end of motorbikes.The new rear-end bag can be extended on a modular basis. This luggage system is particularly suited for sport bikes with a narrow rear end, but could also be an interesting alternative for enduros where pannier systems can- not be mounted.The universal mounting system makes this luggage unit relevant for many other types of motorcycles,too.
