New Motorcycle Product: Diablo Tank Bag by Giant Loop®

Share Article

Minimalist tank bag solution for sport, dirt, adventure, dualsport motorcycles

Giant Loop designed the minimalist Diablo Tank Bag to please even the "I don't like tank bags" motorcycle rider. The shorter cousin of Giant Loop’s popular Fandango Tank Bag, this little devil is made from the same tough, waterproof "trucker's tarp" material and uses the same harness for mounting on sport, dirt, adventure and dualsport motorcycles with either metallic or non-metallic fuel tanks.

In the January 2011 issue of BWM ON (Owners News), "Kit and Caboodle" columnist Kit J. Vercella hailed Giant Loop's Fandango Tank Bag as a return to simplicity and functionality, following years of tank bags that, he wrote, had "morphed into large, multi-compartment 'tank suitcases."
