    I had asked previously if a SW Motech Engage or City tank bag fits on a F650 twin...with no replys.

    SW listed a City bag for the 800 but not the Engage....which suggests a City is a better fit. Neither bag is listed for the F650.

    So are the faux tanks different? Or perhaps the handlebars interfere with the City bag on the 650?

    Anyone know? Pricey bag to order if not sure on fit.

    The bigger bags fit . But block the keyhole and outlet . Slightly. If it's just bike key . instead of multiple keys. Fidgety but still works. Outlet is mostly unusable[​IMG]

    Yes, both bags will fit the F650 twin, as it has the same tank as the 800. The City is a nicer fit, but a larger bag. The Engage will likely block the power socket more than the City.

    One other option you might consider for that bike is the SW Motech EVO Enduro Strap model. It is a larger bag, like the City, at 13-22L capacity. Instead of having the locking ring, the bag unzips from the base for easy removal. My favorite feature is that it can be used as a backpack, since that is often the only bag I'm carrying on my bike. Check it out if you haven't already. SW Motech Evo Enduro Strap
