I have two from Givi that fit onto a locking ring set around the filler cap. The Givi system is excellent and secure. The latest versions can be locked in place so you don't need to drag it around with you.

I use an SW Motech Evo City bag attached to their locking ring. Fits the lines of the Versys tank really well. I've had a Givi tank bag on another bike and I reckon the quality of SW Motech is better and the bags look more substantial. Sorry I don't have a picture but check out the Likeable Rider on YouTube - he did a review of SW Motech tank bags a while ago.

I use a ST602 normally. It's just the right size to keep my ordinary specs and other bits and pieces and it tucks away easily when we stop. The other is a UT810 that I bought primarily to use with the T508 camera bag, to take my DSLR with me safely on the bike, but it would give us a considerable increase in luggage capacity on longer trips. On my 2018 model the 810 obscured the dashboard and I had to use my GPS as my speedo. On my 2019 SE it doesn't so I'm likely to use it more than before.

I'll second the GIVI ST602.  You can put quite a bit of stuff in there if needed.    The only downside is the window for a cell phone sucks, unless you have an original IPhone or something similar in size.

Agreed. I have tried to use two Samsung phones with it and neither responded to my fingers, whether or not I was wearing gloves.

I have the Givi ST605 that locks on to the ring but only any use if you also buy a padlock for the zip. As you guys say - throw away the phone pouch which is at the wrong angle for reflections and useless - other than that it is good for small items.

My main tank bag is a Givi EA118, the bars hit it, and push into it slightly when the steering lock is on so I only keep soft stuff in there but it is very well priced and does look nice with good capacity.
