Design, material used, straps, pockets. Made by a rider for a rider.
With no soft (flannel or soft leather) underlining on a long ride the material will rub the paint off. Water resistant but not water proof, so watch what you are looking for, many took the water proofing for granted.
Should come out with more colors to match bike color tones to keep them trendy and not just a piece of strap on. Should look like a blue bra under silver top.
Used them on my TB in India and made the the trip. Very volumetric, nice design, and pockets to hold all that one needs for a long ride, camera, tripod, tent, accessible bottles and straps at right places to keep it in place.
Now I use it on my Harley Davidson (yes, carried them to USA with me). The straps have come off, maybe bag not meant to handle wind force at 80 miles/hr, zippers still work good though 1 malfunctioned with 5 days but easily fixed.
