Do you need a good sized case for your scooter? It is difficult to compete with the E470. New on the market this case offers 47 liters, the maximum offered in the Monolock range. Aesthetically pleasing and adaptable to low and medium powered motorcycles, the E470 offers the novelty of a removeable painted cover mounted on the top shell, an aesthetic refinement which used to be exclusive to the Monokey range. The wide reflector on both sides of the top shell increases the riders safety after twilight.
A good case with a poor locking mechanism.
Construction is very good. Keep in mind this is a light weight case so some may view it as flimsy. The wrap around reflector is a nice feature and one that drew me to this particular case. Size fits one full face helmet, gloves, etc. but I do not see two full face helmets fitting. My gripe, the locking mechanism is terrible. Must have key in. Must push in locking bar. When unlocking the locking bar at times sticks so one has to press it or jiggle the case to get it to release. The latter benefits from the case being a bit flimsy.

Mounted on 2009 Piaggio MP3 500. Installed easy enough with
stock rack attachment purchase separately, but found it to sit too low with added backrest for maximum comfort for two up riding on bike. Even though the stock seat is longer than the seat on my Yamaha 1100, the case seemed to push the rider forward into the driver. Therefore, I had to raise it and move it farther back on supports to get comfortable seating for riders.
Overall appearance of case is excellent--looks good on bike. Only complaint is the poor latching system quality--does line up easily to close and locking and unlocking can get tricky.

Very Nice Top Case
I really like the Givi E470 top case. It has a sleek design and can hold a good amount. I realize that the Monolock series is not as strong or durable as the Monokey series but my only issue is that for such a large case, the maximum weight is only 6.6 lbs! If it could hold about 25 lbs. then I would give it 5 stars! Still an excellent case, but I would have wanted something more heavy-duty for the price without having to spend more money for one of the Monokey series cases.

George L:I will go with 3 kilos (6.6 pounds) for that is the posted spec inside the case. Also posted is 120kph (74.565 mph). After a month or so, nice case, does the job of holding my helmet and gloves. I really wonder if it would fit two full face helmets for my large Shoei seems to take up quite a bit of room by itself. My only complaint is the "push bar" locking mechanism which requires the key.Sep 18, 2014
I fit an older Shoei RF 1000 and a Dainese (both full face) at the same time, one on its side. I could easily see some helmets just not fitting well together and thus not fitting in the case together, but I would think most helmets would.

Petter B:Inside the lid, there's a sticker that says 3 KG (which is pretty close to 6 lbs). It does seem very little. I've filled my case up with a lot more for a 1000 mile ride. However, it is pretty thin plastic and the base is also plastic, so you should be careful about not putting heavy items in it. I have no problem loading it up with clothes, but when loading it up with heavy groceries, I do ride very carefully. Obviously, I don't honor their ridiculous weight limit, but if it does break I'm assuming fault. I've been very happy with it so far, and nothing has broken overloading it yet. :)Sep 26, 2014
A shopper asked:I'm looking for the biggest, best quality topcase suitable for a vespa lx150 scooter with a rear rack. I'm especially looking at the Givi e470 monolock case. Is that a reasonable choice? or what is?Aug 13, 2011
Heather:More than a 36L is going to look like a luggage rack that has a scooter attached to it, instead of the reverse. But, if Givi makes a scooter specific mount for it - go for it. But also remember the bigger the top case, the more you'll want to put into it and extra weight is going to effect performance and gas milage. Scooters get great gas milage but the more stuff that's added, the more they start getting motorcycle gas milage. I'm on a Genuine Buddy 125 and I use a 29L. I'd like bigger, but it just wouldn't look right.Dec 11, 2011
Chris K:This is as good a choice as any, however, there is no mounting hardware made specifically for your bike. Your best option is to get a MonoLock with the universal top-plate, but you would be responsible for finding a solution for attaching that to your Vespa.Sep 27, 2011
Heather:I ride a Genuine Buddy and have a Shad SH-29, which means 29 liter capacity. I too would like bigger, but it just doesn't look right to put a bigger one on there.
The GIVI E470 is 47 liter capacity - quite a bit bigger. On Kymco people - from what I remember of them in the shop, they are a tad bigger than the Buddys, but not much, and you have a 200, and I only have a 125, so you might be able to go a bit bigger on the top case. The GIVI E470 seems quite big for a little scooter, though, in terms of look and carrying capacity. Keep in mind, what you put in a top case can cause instability during the ride and the parking.
Givi E30 or E36 are probably a better bet, just based on a size analysis. If you need more luggage space - consider some side "saddle bag" type - but again, too much weight on the back of the scooter, and high, can cause unstable rides. (See related products below).
Also, I do not like my Shad SH-29 because it bends out of shape too often, making it hard to close. I fill it with a small backpack with a couple of dictionary sized books and a notebook for school. Much more than that, and it just doesn't fit.Dec 11, 2011
