Givi E55 Tech Monokey Topcase
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.

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.

Nice case, but for the price there should be extras
I really like the case. I needed the extra space to hold my Aerostitch w/extra armor, and it fits no problem.
That said though, it is definitely a premium price.
I am not fond of the latch system. I think that the V46-style key/latch works much better and smoother, and after having one, this feels like a step backward.
In the end, would I switch back to a different case? No. The extra space swings the balance to the E55 for me.

My Givi 46 was great and could fit 2 helmets if you turned them just so. Now that I have a Sena mounted on each helmet, I needed more space. The 55 is huge, same mounting plate. Looks great.

Good top case, but has some flaws.
I received my order quickly, thank you revzilla, and the top case and mounting plate arrived in one box. Some of the paint on the "Maxia 3" logo had been rubbed and the plastic was gouged. Revzilla made it right. The first trip I took with it had heavy rain for two days straight. Only a little water got under the tail light molding on the side of the case. No water got into the case storage area. Otherwise it was a very durable case!

attractive and functional
A very attractive and fully functional case. I use the universal mount and it worked fine. It does require a little too much force to close and latch. But it's still doable.
