Accessories from India?

Here are some pictures of the GW250 at a show in India. There is a tank back with Suzuki logo on it which looks to fit the tank very well{ie designed for it}. There is also a small windshield which is different from the one Suzuki has in their accessory list. It is better looking but not as well fitted.

Tinted wind screen is a must, I think i'll need a taller wind screen though.

I like the windscreen and I think it makes the GW250 as a whole look more complete, aka better. What exactly is the point of the tank cover though? What is it supposed to hold?

Never heard of a tank bag?

They allow you to carry smaller items with easy access. I personally don't care for them as they are too much close up to my chest. They are very popular with the touring crowd.

Interesting images from India...

First: I ran across this cross-marketing partnership with a new-release movie in India...

Second: Check out the bracket/bar on top of the headlamp/instrument panel housing...

The bracket is for a license plate. India uses a front plate that must be seen straight on.

Fuel tank bag doesn't seem like something that I would really use or want to buy. I'd rather get storage that is more substantial for the bike. Either saddle bags or a top case seems more useful.

it's not for everyone but if you need to carry things around it's something to consider

Right and at least this one fits. Many of the universal don't fit right and just look tacky. Also this one isn't as big as they can be.

Another thing, it acts as easy access. So at least if you're on the go, it's right their in front of you. But I would need that bag and a top box for my needs.
