Givi E55 Tech Monokey Topcase 4.3 5 30 30
Good product but a few quirks This top case does the job well and has resisted to some serious loads. One complaint is that the hinges screws loosen sometimes and as a result one of the microscopic special washer/spacer got lost. Also, after a few weeks of use, some creative thinking was required to work on the elbow of each hinge to prevent the case from closing abruptly (preferably on your hands). After a few trials, it seems that the most effective way is to dismount both hinges, lay them flat on the side and hit the elbow rivet once or twice (gently! It doesn't take much and you want to be able to do it again down the road) to make it harder to fold/unfold. I also filed down the stops on the elbow to allow for just a little more movement span so that the top opens a little more towards the vertical (less vertically offset weight). Fits 2 full size helmets but it is amazing how all those nice stylish rounded corners prevent so many items from fitting in the case! A half way between this design and the completely square boxes would help a lot. Finally, the 22 lbs load limit is useless to me (need to schlep around lots of things and sometimes realize that I took the bike, not the car, as I walk out of the store). Luckily, test has proven that 3 times that weight will work (although I did ride carefully, looking out for even small pot holes). So good point for that! September 15, 2014
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. September 12, 2014
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. June 9, 2014
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. August 26, 2013
Good case Great finish and detail. The elastic band keeps items from bouncing around the case. I cannot comment on durability as i only had it for a few months. My only gripe is the locking mechanism. It can be difficult to close sometimes. Oh and there are no reflective surfaces. August 10, 2013
Latching procedure requires practice 1. To get the carrying handle to deploy requires the key. 2. If you don't need the handle deployed, place it in the stowed position prior to closing the cover, because if the top is closed first the handle must be carefully stowed so as not to activate the cover release button under the handle. 3. If not careful it would be possible to lock the key inside, just make sure to always have the key in the lock prior to closing the lid. 4. The V46 model has a much better latch design, but is 9 liters smaller. July 29, 2013
Great top case for a Kawasaki Concours 14!!! Purchased this case for a long trip I was going on. You can't go wrong with this case. Very high quality. I like the fact that my full face helmet fit with room for my jacket. I find myself putting all my cloths in the side bags. The gear I need to get to easily in this case. July 22, 2013
Exactly what I want I received this case a week before I received the mounting bracket and adapter for my bike. Installing the plate took a while but it wasn't difficult. Revzilla helped me confirm which version of this case I wanted, as this is the only one they have! I love all the space this case gives me. Right now I don't feel the need to purchase side cases and I like the look and slim profile with just a topcase. July 15, 2013

William R: Good size for my needs. Will mount easily and should give me plenty of use. Jun 7, 2014

Matthew V: Givi makes a great product, and it's freaking HUGE!!! Feb 14, 2014
David P: 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. Dec 6, 2013

Stephen P: 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. Jun 16, 2014

Vishnu S: Hi!

I've a sport tourer, the Honda ST1100. I do not think this model of top case from Revzilla comes in any color other than the grey/black case shown in images.

Passenger comfort? I personally do not have the backrest installed, but I've seen many folks that do. It seems to work well.

Good luck with the purchase! That's a fine machine, the C14! :-)

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.

GEORGE W: To use the Givi M5 Monokey Plate plate, you need the Givi sidearm kit/top rack that is specific to your bike. Otherwise, if you already have a top rack of some kind, the Givi E251 Universal Adapter Plate may work for you. Jun 24, 2014

GEORGE W: No, the Givi cases, including this one, do not include any type of mounting plate. Usually, you buy the Givi sidearm kit (top rack) that is specific to your bike, along with the Givi M5 Monokey Plate. But instead, you could purchase the Givi E251 Universal Adapter Plate (search for it here at Revzilla), which can be mounted to most any top rack. Jun 24, 2014
