Givi Monokey 52 Liter Trekker Case
Great topcase at a decent price
Huge storage capabilities, and seems to have a secure mounting system. Easy on and off when you need to remove it. The box seems stable and is only slightly effected by side winds when I'm riding solo, 2 up, you can't tell its behind you. When riding solo, you can tell its back there in strong winds, but it doesn't seem to be a big sail in the wind.
Installed on a R1200GSW

Nice alternative BMW
Looks good and serves the function. Only issue is that installing the "bike specific" mounting plate takes some finesse. Look for a blog where an owner explains how because the GIVI instructions are not very helpful.

Great case, wobbles a bit though
The case is really roomy and sits really nicely on my bike [pic above]. And the two helmet thing is true; it held so much of my stuff and still has room in it. There are only two things I don't like about it 1] is the fact that it wobbles a bit even when it's empty, I tightened all the screws and it still wobbles. Not to a degree of it breaking and falling. Maybe because it uses plastic mount. 2] I bought the one with the silver finish. It really scratches up quickly which is strange since this case is meant to take a beating.
All in all, great case for the space and sturdiness.
I recommend it.

Good looking big trunk
Holds two full face helmets (as long as I pop the SH-10 units off the sides). Stable and no buffeting or weaving without a passenger. Passenger likes the trunk WITHOUT the back rest as the back pad in her jacket is fine

Givi fan here...
Ok, I was thinking about the full aluminium cases... but for 2 helmets are super big. This givi its great, in all ways. Awesome quality, termination, design, etc.
The lock are super good, I mean, is not the old super easy lock-pick model. This is a good lock.
The only con, is that came with 2 copies, one with plastic cover on the back and the other plain. I dont know how much the save just for including unfinished key... but is not good for the image. I read all comments about the key loose attached to the handle, and they are right. One copy are attached to the handle, free of move, I had luck and the key doesn't scratched the case (and I didn't care, I will made my own scratches in couple of days...) but is a sign of careless from the brand.

Great For Commuting
I use this box daily on my 25 mile highway commute for carrying my laptop, lunch, work clothes and bike cover. It has held up great in the 3 months that I have been using it. It will indeed hold two helmets but not much more. (I have a Medium Shoei GT-Air and my wife's Medium Kabuto Aeroblade 3)
The built in straps do keep everything in place while riding but only with a full load. It would be great to have loops inside the corners of the box for tying down smaller items. The locking system took a few times to get used to but is easy to operate, and installation is a snap...well more like a "click". I have used the external tie down slots a few times with great confidence. All that being said Givi seems to have a monopoly on the market for top cases so it would be great if they got their S#*t together.
For example: (My reason for the Average Rating)
The bracket support bars that attach to my motorcycle arrived in the box with a sticker on them that read "13LBS Max Load"... The rated maximum carrying capacity of the mounting bracket for this box is listed at 22LBS. The box alone weighs almost 12LBS, so is Givi telling me that I can only carry 10LBS worth of stuff? But the product description on Givi's website reads that the box can carry up to 22LBS. I am confused...
When I asked Givi about this they couldn't explain. They simply told me that they were working on it. These cases are not cheap so it would be great to have all the details before making the purchase, but I am not sorry I did...yet.

Well made but expensive
It's big and expensive. You need the key to close the top. Latches tightly to plate.
