The BMW GS has long been the gold standard in the world of adventure bikes, and it’s safe to say that BMW has raised the bar with the launch of the R 1300 GS. Apart, of course, from the GS’ already capable setup straight out of the factory, aftermarket manufacturers elevate the bike’s capabilities through all sorts of accessories and upgrades.

Just like the BMW GS itself, Touratech has long been one of the biggest names in the ADV accessory scene, and it should come as no surprise that Touratech is one of the first to release an extensive catalog of luggage options for the new big-bore adventure-tourer. Naturally, Touratech has quite a lot of products designed specifically for the new GS, and it’ll take us quite a long time to dive into each and every one. As such, let’s take a look at some of its standout luggage options.

Touratech has a wide selection of tank bags for all types of riders.

When it comes to both urban riding and long-distance touring, you can’t go wrong with soft luggage. It’s versatile, lightweight, and slender, allowing you to maintain a more streamlined profile when riding in dense traffic or through dense foliage. Touratech’s wide selection of tank bags is ideal for commuters, as it allows riders to store their quick-access daily essentials such as their phone, wallet, and other documents, within arm’s reach. The Travel Tank Bag offers nine liters of storage, and even comes with Molle patches for additional compatibility. Its waterproof hardshell cover also provides a layer of security for your belongings against the elements.

For those looking to venture beyond the beaten path, the Touratech Extreme Edition Tank Bag is made of rugged materials and boasts robust zippers. It’s slightly bigger too, with 10 liters of well-protected storage space. Meanwhile, long-distance tourers can opt for the Touring Tank Bag with an expandable storage space from nine liters to 14 liters. It’s the most versatile of the bunch, as it’s suitable for both commuting and long-distance touring.
