Triumph black swing arm bag color

So I just got my black swing arm today. Crazy question but is the flap on the bag supposed to be dark brown and the main body of the bag black? The box and the label on the bag say black. From the pics I’ve seen online it looks all black. Hoping some one can verify.

That's the brown my friend. Looks like they messed up. I have the black one and it's definitely black. And that ain't black. Hope it helps

Triumphs olive is what we’d call brown

Thanks for verifying. Guess I have to return this thing. Might be a good thing. Looking more at the Bike Brothers bag..starting to really like it. Better price too.

So spoke to parts guy a dealer. Apparently this is the new black swingarm bag and they haven't made all black for a few months now. Just a heads up for anyone looking to get an all black bag.

Really?? That black looks suspiciously brown to me !
Anyway, last year I ordered the black and received the brown.
Triumph offered to replace it, but I decided I like it and I think your (new color) looks good too.

Yea the main body is black and the flap is brown..LOL so it's black according to Triumph. Think he said the latest olive is more of a brown too. I wanna try and like this one but just seems off without any other brown parts on the bike. I think I'm gonna order the Bike Bros. bag. I just hate the shipping time to the US.

Am I correct in thinking they only make one side - the left?

I had looked at these some time back but was hoping for a pair - left 'and' right.

I think Triumph dropped the ball only making one side (assuming I'm correct).

Cheerio,

Roy
