Not built to last
My first and last experience with a Givi product. The E55 is designed to look good, but functions poorly. While this case my hold up for casual use - weekend riding and a longer tour once or twice a year - it's not capable of withstanding daily use in a commuting application.

The latch/locking mechanism is weak, and depends upon two very small, brittle springs which couldn't cost more than 5 cents each - but if one breaks, you'll be stranded with a case that won't latch or lock. It's happened to me multiple times in less than one year of ownership. Also, the hinge supports are affixed to the case with tiny self-tapping screws threaded directly into the plastic body. When the screws loosen - and trust me, they will - the lid will not stay open on its own, leading it to slam shut on your hands/arms whenever you load and unload the case. After several cycles of tightening the screws, the holes become enlarged and the screws will no longer hold fast.

These simple design flaws could be easily avoided - the latch mechanism could utilize higher-quality springs that have a longer service life, and threaded metal inserts for machine screws should be located where the hinge supports attach to the case body.

If Givi had subjected this case to a modicum of product testing, I believe these flaws would have been readily apparent. That leads me to believe that they either don't adequately test their products, or don't care enough to design them for the long haul.

After fixing the latch a couple of times, I have decided to toss my E55 and replace it with a Pelican case, which is guaranteed for life. It may not look as sleek, but I'm confident it won't leave me stranded by the side of the road and/or resorting to duct tape to keep my case closed.

Not very good for the price!
Too many parts, the handle and lock section are removable and not sealed very well..I get water and road dust inside the case. Not impressed. The supports that are supposed to hold up the lid when open, are garbage....not up to the task. The lid keeps closing itself in the slightest wind or if you bump the bike. The screws keep falling out of the bracket supports for the lid. I've put them back into the feeble plastic posts so many times that they have stripped out. I had to use plastic weld to hold the screws in. The only redeeming feature is the size.

Good quality top case -- fits great on the Concours 14.
The case seems well made and looks great. It has plenty of room, and is quite lightweight for its size. I have bought it for my Concours 14, to mount on the aluminum luggage rack from advancedsporttouring (the rack came with the optional mounts for Monokey cases). I have the Corbin seats and backrest. To my surprise, I was able to mount the case without having to remove the backrest (I just had to slightly tilt it forwards, and I could immediately push it back to its normal position once the case was on) .

Amazing looks and great functionality!
This thing will fit my laptop bag that has a 17 inch giant gaming laptop in it and a lunch box when I go to work! When I am at work I put my helmet and riding jacket in it with ease. I highly recommend this top case, it is stellar. I also recommend the lighting kit due to the fact that the case hangs over the back of the bike quite a bit and I felt that taller trucks and semi's might not be able to see my tail light. I bought the light kit and feel a lot more safe riding now that people have more tail light to see.

Awesome function and style for the distance traveller
My wife and I do all our long distance travelling on our 2010 Concours 14 these days and while the saddle bags on the Connie have lots of room, it’s just not enough for both of us. I’ve been looking for the right top-case to fill that need for additional space, yet be true to the styling on the Connie. The E55 Tech case fit the bill perfectly. Very modern/sleek styling and all the bells and whistles one expects from GIVI. The brilliant latch system is great and allows you to quickly remove the case and carry it away like a suitcase. The case is made of solid construction and there is minimal flexing when used with the SR410 Rack Mount. I highly recommend the SR410 as it provides an integrated platform between the bike frame and the case. I also purchased the backrest (pricey, but an essential comfort accessory for pillion), the liner, and the stop light kit. Each of these accessories fit perfectly with the case. The case is huge and holds both my XL and my wife’s medium full-faced helmets with ease. It can even accommodate lightweight, but bulky camping gear including our ALPS Zephyr 2 tent. I am sincerely pleased with this purchase and how well the case works/looks with the Concours.

Don't leave home without it
I installed the E55 on my Versys (along with E45 side bags). It works very well. It's not too big or disproportionate to the bike, especially when mated with the E45 side bags. I also installed the optional rear-light kit. Very pleased with carrying and storage capabilities. It holds two full size helmets, as well as gloves and other malleable products. Adds real utility to the bike. Couldn't imagine the bike without it.

Does the job, but many issues.
So it is a great bag until you really use it. Really the big big issue with it is the lock... when you open it, the little latches get stuck so you have to use a key to push them upwards so you can close it again. To close the whole thing, you have to push HARD to get it.. Its expensive for what you get.

Gorgeous topcase!
I needed the biggest case I could find, while trying to maintain the good looks of my bike. Enter the Givi E55, which is one really great-looking case.

Pros: Integrated lights look awesome, and work well. Laser cut key is nifty, though kind of overkill considering my bike's ignition isn't nearly so sophisticated. Fit and finish are perfect. Attention to little details is great, like the little arms that keep the lid open while loading. Shad's SH50 doesn't have this, so the lid likes to drop down on your fingers when you least expect it.

Cons: Givi is a bit expensive, and the case doesn't come with a mount plate, so that has to be bought separately.

Large enough to fit Schuberth helmet.

Reading reviews on top cases and I chose the tech variant because my scooter is mainly black. Givi is the most "name dropped" top case out there. The best of the best.

Best overall tradeoff, including price and match to existing bags on BMW R1100RT. A little concerned over the problems people have cited about latch coming loose, but hoping for the best.

Tons of space for stuff. I still use it on my cruiser (m109R) but with the rack mounted to a luggage rack for solo riding. I've used it since i purchased it and never had any issues with it.

I have had a Givi E52 Maxia top case on my DL1000 for almost 10 years. With the exception of the stop light kit, which only worked for 6 months, the E52 had been a blessing. It is attractive, spacious, dry, durable, and stable. I had the V-Strom on some very rough fire trails, and the Givi E52 never failed me. That kind of quality product instils confidence in the brand. This E55 Maxia will go on my new 2013 Tiger Explorer. Stoplight kit will come from Admore.

Do I need to buy the mountain kit separately? if so, do you have it for sale?
A shopper on May 20, 2011
BEST ANSWER: The mounting kits are bike specific and are sold separately. Search through the Givi products by choosing your bike model to find the correct mounting system for your bike.
I have a givi monolock mount for a top case on my kawi for a ase that had been damaged. Just want to confirm that the monolock cases are universal and a new monolock case will fit my monolock mount?
A shopper on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, all Givi cases do NOT use the same 3-point mounting system. There are two different systems available, and both Monokey and Monolock plates have a wedge-shaped element towards the rear. If you have a Givi mount but aren't sure of the type, do a Google image search for "monokey vs. monolock" and you'll see many comparison illustrations which will help you identify which system you have, so you can order the correct type of case.
I have the Kawi C14 in Candy Arabian Red. Do they make a case for that color? Also, is the case comfortable for the passenger (with the optional back pad, of course).
A shopper on Jun 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am nor sure about colors as the one I have is black. My wife is new to riding motorcycles and I didn't get the pad with the top box. The first time she rode the bike after I got the top box was a 800 mile weekend trip for us to the mountains. She loved it from the moment she sat with her back against it. The top box makes her feel so much more secure even though she says that she is not putting much pressure against it. I have asked her repeatedly if she wanted the pad but I guess with a jacket it is comfortable without the pad. I liked the top box so much I just bought the side cases to go with it.
Can a luggage rack be added to this case or only the E52 Maxia?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Givi USA web site can utilized to answer most questions you may have about the current lie of Givi product now available here in the USA. The accessories page for the E55 Monokey top case will let you see all the available accessories/kits for the E55. I would provide the web address or a link, but the "Submit" operatioin blocks such entries. Specifically, yes there is a separate luggage rack.

Good luck with your purchase, should you decide on the E55. It has worked well for me.

Ride safe!
What colors/finishes does the E55 Tech come in?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: You can get the E55 Topcase in any color you'd like, as long as it's Black. In all seriousness, other colors do exist, but at this time we are only carrying the Matte Black. If it makes a difference, it's totally the coolest color.
I have Honda Ctx700N. I have a back rest. I do not have a rear carrier. What products do I need to install Givi E55 Monokey to my bike?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You will need the bike specific mounting plate/kit as well. That is made by Givi as well and is sold separately.
I got this case for Christmas and it is huge but also very cool looking ( as a top case can be). Holds to full face helmets with ease. Easy to take off and on and very secure on bike.
I'm considering purchasing a Givi E55 Monokey for my 2003 Honda St 1300. Which mounting plate and back rest would I need? Many thanks. jeff
A shopper on Jun 2, 2012
BEST ANSWER: To mount any of the Givi Monokey Topcases, you will need the Givi E215 Mounting Plate specifically designed the 02-09 Honda ST 1300. Please give us a call at 877.792.4955 if you would like to order, as Givi's stock tends to change rapidly and we prefer to be able to check their stock before orders are placed.

What type of lights are included with the Givi E55 Tech topcase?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2011
BEST ANSWER: None on the standard (non-luxury) version. Instead there are reflective inserts that can be replaced with the E112 LED stop-light kit or aftermarket (high performance) light kits from ADMORE.
Does this case fit two large full-face helmets, as opposed to the V46 which only fits one large and one small?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2011
BEST ANSWER: If situated correctly inside the case, this top-case is designed to two of most full-face helmets. Some helmet brands do tend to run larger than others, so it can't be guaranteed for every helmet make and model.
I am considering this case for my 2007 Honda vfr800, which plate and bracket would I need?
Matthew B on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: don't know becauseRevZilla in its infinite wisdom milk this question to F 650 BMW owner. Call up Givi USA and ask them for the correct part number or call revzilla.

what I can tell you is that this case is rock solid, one of the best cases I owned, holds 2 full face helmets plus other knick knacks in the spaces around them, and the lights that they offer from that Canadian company whose name I can't remember are wickedly bright and something that will significantly add to your safety.
