I have a slightly older version of that. Took it from PA to WY to NM to NC to PA in 2018. Great bag. Outstanding mounting system. Fit perfectly on my FJR. It sits a bit close to the raised bars on my 2019 S 10.

That bag sits very oddly on the S10 tank.....doesn't look right.
I didn't like it so I run it on my old speed triple which has a long flat tank.

That appears to be the exact same GIVI tankbag with tankring that I have been using for the past 93,000 miles. Yes the past couple years the left top cover zipper has been giving me some trouble but spraying the zipper with some wax containing spray-polish seems to help keep it working smoother. I love the tankring it mounts and dismounts super easily and fast, after owning one I highly doubt I will ever buy another tankbag with the conventional straps. The bag mount is adjustable Mine is mounted about as far to rear as possible and still slightly hits the handlebars on full lock turns but it really hasn’t had any bad effects. The clear plastic top cover has always leaked in the rain so you can’t use a map under the cover unless you put it in a ziplock bag first or the map will get ruined if it rains, it doesn‘t Ieak much I have never had anything stored inside the tankbag get wet. The past couple years the clear plastic has developed cracks that I have been resealing with black silicone.
I just took a couple pictures with iPhone but so far they haven’t showed up on iPad , hopefully later today I will be able to post the pictures.

I had one of these just like the third pictures above.
It was the flimsiest cheapest junk and the zipper went right out. Never again Givi.

That KTM bag looks pretty slick, but after owning a tankring tankbag I prefer not to go back to the straps system. So you have been using it for 5-6 years and haven’t experienced any zipper issues or moisture getting inside the map pouch ?
I wonder if with some modifications my GIVI tankring system could be used on that KTM tankbag ?

Probably not what you are after but I " recycled " my GIVI straps one and " transformed" in one with tankring...
You would need a metal plate and one tankring...
You can have just one map holder, plus one bag or the full bag( I actually store the last piece on the GIVI topcase at the back...)IMG_20220801_163648.jpgIMG_20220801_163908.jpgIMG_20220801_163908.jpgIMG_20220801_163803.jpgIMG_20220801_163628.jpg

I don't think rating it on "years used" is a very accurate way to test it out.
The one in the picture is on the 2017 Tenere [5 years] with 34,000 miles and is still in great condition. Great tank bag! Looks about like new.
At the time I purchased two of them and the one on my 2012 would have close to 150,000 miles on it used in the roughest conditions. I am just ready to replace it. The left side top zipper is shot and my belly has rubbed on the back side so much it is a little ratty looking. I still feel it was the best tank bag I have ever had.
Could they make it better? I would like to have a water bottle holder on one side, I think they should put a loop to hold your sunglasses. Dividers inside would be nice.
That bag is still for sale.

I'm looking at the tusk bag now. If I go that route I hope it's as good as the KTM.
