SW Motech vs SHAD Motorcycle Tank Bags

by Daniel Noble 25 Apr 2024 0 Comments

Motorcycle tank bags are without a doubt the most convenient storage method available, taking a position front and centre on the motorbike to offer quick access to those essential items without having to stop and get off mid-journey.

Sitting within arm’s reach, the convenience of tank bags really comes in handy when access to a toll pass, wallet etc. is needed in a hurry. However, everyone who is anyone in the world of motorcycle luggage has recognised the potential in them and as a result, there are a multitude of options when searching for a new tank bag.

Two brands that have placed a portion of their efforts into developing such a range of tank bags are SW Motech and SHAD. When assessing everything from storage capacity and convenience to security and water protection, it is notable that both brands’ bags have a lot to offer, but what exactly are the benefits and how do they differ?

With both brands’ range of tank bags compared and the similarities and differences laid out, the only question left to ask is, who actually offers the best bags?

Overall, both SW Motech and SHAD are worth considering when looking for a new motorcycle tank bag. SW Motech edge ahead when it comes to storage capacity with their three expandable tank bags offering just that little bit more than the SHAD tank bags. Despite that, SHAD tank bags are arguably the better option, offering the only dual locking tank bags on the market at cheaper prices than their SW Motech counterparts.
