View Full Version : Offical Aprilia Tail Bag has arrived

Picked up the Offical Aprilia Tail Bag today. No fitting instructions, but once I'd worked out the strap arrangements it was easy.

The accessory brochure says:
"Tail Bag 2S000050Tail bag consisting of a backpack that fastens onto a nylon base with side pockets. With shoulder straps, once the backpack is removed and worn, the base remains fixed to the bike without compromising passenger comfort."
There is no nylon base with side pockets that I can see, perhaps they got it mixed up with the Dorsoduro version, which does. - Dealer will contact Aprilia and find out what's going on (as per usual!)

As long as the passenger doesn't sit on the clips, comfort should be ok!

The bag isn't waterproof, so comes with a cover, which a neat fit. Max load 4Kg

Looks very nice. How much and what pockets and or expansion does it have? How stable does it seem? (My pillion seat locates poorly, lots of free play. Arranged straps to mount my tank bag on the seat via the body rather than the seat.)

The bag has no pockets externally or internally. 20 litres, expanding to 25 litres
RRP 199.99 (I managed a 20% discount on that price)

Seems very stable, yet to try it on the road
