My research continues. I am going to get a tank lock bag. SW Motech is too expensive. The Givi seems to have a very large flange which is a cosmetic issue.

Anybody out there have a Kappa?

If you are just looking at a pic of the underside of the Givi, it does make the flange look very big, but the actual flange mount itself on the tank is not imo.  Riding the bike without the tankbag  i don't even notice the tank mount. In a funny sort of way, it affords some protection when fuelling up against bangin' the filler pipe on the paintwork as well.

If you want a few pics let me know.

I've put some pics into the gallery. They may or may not help you make a decision. Diameter of the tanklock ring is 140mm. Good luck. G.

Mosko Moto tang bags are pretty good and worth a look.

Kappa are the same factory as Givi, the mounting rings are identical.
If it aint broke, keep fixing it until it is!
