Product Review: Givi XS301 Xstream tailpack

1 of 1

Givi XS301 Xstream tail pack £84

Tester: Rupert Paul

Time tested: Three years/15,000 miles

What’s good? Everything. This beautifully thought out, I’ve attached this semi-rigid tail pack securely to a Triumph Tiger, Ducati 900SS, Ducati M900, KTM 990 SMT, Suzuki GSX-R750, Ducati Hyperstrada, Yamaha XJ900 and many more. It has its own bungees with flaps to protect your paintwork. Inside there’s room for trainers, jeans and shirt, plus plenty of smaller stuff, a map and food. The cargo net is handy too. The waterproof cover works well and stays on at 150mph. It’s my favourite piece of luggage.

What’s not? I couldn’t make it fit a Ducati 600 Monster. And it’s being discontinued, but was still available at www.intobikes.co.uk and www.mcnshop.com at the time of writing (May 2015).
