Givi 780FZ Monorack Sidearms Monster 696 / 796 / 1100
A Secure way to tote your Monokey Case
This does what it is advertised to do - securely mounts your Monokey (or other GIVI case) to your bike. This is a solid mount and is extremely easy to install - maybe a ten minute job. My only complaint is why does motorcycle luggage in general have to cost sooo much $$$$? The GIVI branded stuff is top quality, and Revzilla is without equal for customer service, but the profit margin for motorcycle luggage and related components has to be incredibly high. 90 clams for a few nuts and bolts and two small pieces of powder coated steel is out of control.

Perfect fit, easy install, great quality
Givi is on top of the game when it comes to
aftermarket accessories. The overall products are well thought out and install is easy. Certain items can be considered a bit on the expensive side, but the factory options almost always cost a lot more! Overall a great value.

works as advertised
I ordered this rack for my 2012 Versys, since I owned a Monolock V46 top case for another bike and intend to switch the case between bikes. the rack doesn't look like the one in the pictures, but it functions the same. It was simple to install, maybe 15 minutes, you re-use the plastic handgrips from the oem ones and screw them to the Givi mount. and assemble the three major parts. The finish is good and locknuts were supplied where necessary. It is a good solid mount. The only odd thing, and this is due to the design of the bike, is that it sits much higher than other racks I have used on other bikes. The rack continues the upswept lines at the rear of the Versys which puts it about mid chest on me at 5'9".

I don't believe in paying $800 or more for luggage bags or racks. This was the cheapest option out there for my Versys. These racks are well made, sturdy and connect to the subframe. Luckily, I have a friend who is a Machinist and we mounted a nice flat plate of Aluminum to them instead of the Monokey plate etc.....Very happy.

If you have a stock motorcycle
Then it will work but if you have an aftermarket passenger grip or slim taillight assembly or exhaust then you would need to go back to stock except for the exhaust. Also the seat lock is not accessible due to the bar being in the way, you would need to modify it unless you have a wrench to lower the bar each time you want to unlock the seat.
Overall it does look and fit real good.
