Touratech’s New Ambato Tank Bag in Red

Posted on


Riders of the new R 1200 GS now have the choice: In addition to the noble black and the sporty black and white edition, Touratech now offers the expandable tank bag of the new Ambato series in dashing red.

The 'Ambato Exp limited red' does not only perfectly match with the “racing red” of the R 1200 GS, but also adds some fresh colours to different-coloured models. This modernly designed tank bag offers both the outstanding equipment and the quality of the Ambato Exp tank bags, excitingly combined with an exclusive colour and material mix.

For this purpose, Touratech does not use a simple nylon, but tearproof Cordura fabrics with robust waterproof tarpaulin inserts. Reflective surfaces made of 3M Scotchlite ensure excellent visibility; fluorocarbon impregnation and Teflon-coating offer protection against moisture, dirt, oil and fading. The 'Ambato Exp limited red' does not only feature a vehicle specific, exactly fitting base plate for a safe hold, but some smart details, too. It comes with an inside pocket with Velcro lid fastening, an organizer with mini-bag, a map pocket as well as reflective drawstrings to quickly attach gloves or a rain coat. With its comfortable carrying handle, the tank bag also looks good when taken off the motorbike. With the supplied straps, it can be also used as a rucksack or a shoulder bag.

Like all tank bags by Touratech, the Ambato Exp limited red is made by Kahedo in Germany and is highly durable even under extreme conditions. Now available as limited edition of 100 pieces.

Touratech UK came into the spot light when they kitted out Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s BMW GS bikes for both the Long Way Round and the Long Way Down. They also provided equipment for Charley Boorman’s Race to Dakar. They have also provided equipment for other adventure trips, working with celebrities including comedian Ross Noble and actor Danny John-Jules.

Nick Plumb, Touratech MD has competed in the Dakar Rally 4 times, completing the rally on his first and last attempt. He also features heavily in Race to Dakar.
