Two days ago, I picked up my used Svartpilen 2019 from a dealer. The original owner had swapped the stock tank carrier and had the metal Husqvarna metallic plate instead. Husqvarna tank bag is too expensive so I order the Cortech Super 2.0 10-Liter. Fits well! 6 of the 8 magnets make contact with the Husqvana metal plate and these magnets are STRONG. Here are a few pics.
Nice. Any idea if this metal plat matches 2020+ bolt pattern? Not sure if there’s any difference up top, but nearly every other body panel has a slightly different bolt point to meet the Indian manufacturing plant tooling.
My guess is that the previous owner of my bike decided to keep the tank-bag for his new bike but had no use for the metal plate, hence left it. Since it’s a Husqvarna product, I would assume that it fits the newer models. But I could be wrong. See here for a good description of the differences between pre and post 2020 models:
