Givi B33 Monokey Top Case
Great capacity for a daily driver
I was looking for a luggage solution that wouldn't overwhelm the lines of the bike, or be as wide as the OEM saddlebags, so I grabbed the smallest Givi topcase I could find. Lockable and waterproof were big plusses, as is push-button quick detach.
Nice to be able to lock a full face helmet in the case when off the bike, or put a couple of small bags of groceries in there. Very practical for day to day use.
Pretty simple install. For my Ducati it did require the additional purchase of the Universal Top Case Adapter kit and a luggage rack.
A tail light kit would be nice too, just not offered on this model GIvi. The case 'could' block the brake light visibility to a high profile vehicle behind me in bumper to bumper traffic.
Seems pretty sturdy in my first month of use, and I think it's a really good bang-for-the-buck.
Did I mention I'm especially impressed with it being totally waterproof? :)

Compact and capable
I wanted a small alternative to my panniers that would make lane splitting - and entering my narrow garage opening - easier, and this bag fills the bill. It carries everything I've needed so far on my daily commute, which often includes a small briefcase and a small camera bag. It has not noticeably affected handling of my Vstrom 650. While this is more metaphysical musing than review, I'm also pretty sure that installing it saved my life: http://dizzyone.net/kindlygentlemenmotorcycleclub/the-interesting-thing-about-almost-getting-killed-this-morning/

Does what it is supposed to.
Easy to use, and holds a helmet and gloves easily.

Perfect Size Top Case for Everyday
This B33 monokey top case provides the perfect size top case for the everyday commuter and overnight trip. With the monokey system you can switch in seconds to a large road trip case. The only thing that disappointed me was that it did not have a document box like all of the other monokey top cases do. Not a big deal but a small disappointment.
Goes really well on my Triumph Trophy SE. Triumph only offers a 55L top case that cost nearly $700 with the mounting plate and case, with no option for a smaller case.

Good size and quality for everyday commuting.
I really like the quality and size of this case and as usual Revzilla shipped it super fast ,I had it the next day. The only negative I have is that Givi has the worst instructions on how to install the mounting bracket but I'm thinking its a European thing . I've purchased SW Motech accessories in the past and their instructions were horrible also.

Looks great on BMW F650GS
I have been looking for a quality top case to hold my Shoei Neotec helmet. It fits perfectly with a little room to spare for other things. The top case is well made and I like the extra safety the reflectors provide. I bought the mounting plate for my bike and it installed easily and fits perfectly. I can also easily and quickly take the top case off when I don't need it.

B33 Monokey is just perfect!!!
I was looking for a bag that was not too big and not too small. Bingo - I found it! I was trying to find a bag that was well made, without being a monster in size were it overwhelms and look fuggly on my bike. This bag fits my bike and can easily hold a helmet with lots of extra room. Of course the quality, ease of use and styling are excellent!

Givi MonoKey B33 - Small and inexpensive
All I wanted was a top case big enough to store my Sidi boots when I arrived at my destination. I got lots of advice, mostly that I would regret a case too small but never too big. I looked at the big 46 liter cases they are too too big for wnat I wanted. I see the need, but not as an only case.
The B33 is a great size. And although no case accents a sportbike, this one does not stand out.
The Givi quality is evident, which me so glad I didn't buy a cheaper brand.
Maybe I'll get a Monster Trunk in the future, but I will never part with my B33.
