Givi E22N Monokey 22L Cruiser Side Cases
The work well, look good, not too pricey.
I'm impressed with Givi products in general. Regarding these cases, the high standards in design and engineering are evident at a glance and stunning upon close inspection. On my 2013 Triumph Tiger XC, the bags fit on the Givi PLR6401 rack with a solid, confidence-inspiring snap. Bonus: they are reversible side to side---i found fitting the slope to the front matches the angle of my seat and makes a large, flat platform to stack baggage on. The style nicely matches my stock Triumph top case. Everything makes sense: top load, gasket seal, easily removable, decent capacity. I've only had them a short time and can claim nothing as far as durability. Maybe later I'll have more to say on that subject. 4 keys included! 4! You can lose 3 and not be screwed. Now here's one ding: one case is perfect. The other one, when you go to close it, you have to slightly distend it--sort of pull it to the side, to get it to come over the top of the latch and close properly. Not a huge issue, the motion has already become second nature, but it should have been caught by QC. All in all, I recommend these bags and have no regrets.

They were just what we were looking for big enough for small trips but not to bulky. They are decent quality. They snap on very firmly a little tough at first but they do not rattle. Very pleased with them.

Instructions for the racks are not the greatest, but if I can figure it out, so can you. Once you get the first few parts on, things will start rolling. I put these on a 2014 versys with a V-47 topcase. I prefer the compact look of the e-22. The taillights will fit between the cases, so you can put them on and ride(on the 2014 versys), but they will be between the cases, so bear in mind they may not be visible to others unless you are right in front of them. I can't vouch for durability, I haven't had them but a few days. I think they will be good for paved road use. I am impressed with Givi quality so far.

A perfect match for my NC700X
These cases - along with the Givi PL1111 Side Case Racks and the Givi 1111KIT Top Case Kit for Honda NC700X 2012-2014 are a perfect match for my bike. The racks are rock solid, installed extremely easy and fast, and fit perfectly. The cases are perfect for what I need them for - a little extra storage for my urban adventures in commuting. Great quality, they are small enough to not stick out too far on either side, but large enough to hold my laptop and other assorted work stuff, as well as the extra day to day items I carry along for the ride.
Overall very pleased - and the super fast shipping was an extra bonus - ordered on a Thursday, the racks got here the next day, and the cases the following Monday

These cases look great. I love the more angular look. And compared to some of the other Givi cases, these are exceptional value. I have only used them a couple of times and the only downside is that the lid has to be 'wiggled' in order to get it to seat flat and lock properly. But other than that, I love these cases.
Depending on how you orient them, they provide a flat surface with the pillion seat and so its easy to throw a large duffel across the back and have it lay there nice and stable.
Very pleased overall.

MUCH BETTER THAN THE 21'S
These are great , better constructed than the 21's with slightly bigger opening which makes a big difference in loading and unloading . Comparatively speaking competitively priced . These carry more than you would think by just looking at them . Check them out I think you will be pleasantly surprised . TheReaper!

Nice side cases
Easy to open. The case key has 3 positions. 1-Locked, 2-Remove from rack (by pushing down on the key) & 3-Open the top. It's easier to remove the case from the rack by opening the top 1st & then pushing the latch down with your finger. You can then close the top & lift the case off the bottom tabs. You can put the cases on either side of your bike or rack. Very convenient with a nice fit & finish. I likey. Buy them now.

Great commuter bags.
I commute about 40 miles a day on my Vstrom and these bags work great. They are big enough to pack everything I need for my day and are small enough to get me through those tight traffic jams. They also work great for those weekend trips. They allow you to pack enough gear to be comfortable at camp and still be nimble on the back roads. Love these bags.
