Givi Monokey 52 Liter Trekker Case
1 annoying flaw
The box is big and well built. I can lock in 2 full helmets and additional gear which is great. The only thing I don't like about it: You need to key to open or close the case....which is not a show stopper...just kind of annoying.

Excellent box that securely holds about everything.
I decided that what I needed was a trunk for my 08 KLR 650. I was a bit nervous that the 52 L top case was going to look awfully huge and that it might be way to big. However, I have found that if anything the case could be just a tad bigger but with some creative packing I can get about all I need inside of it. Primarily, I am using this bike for commuting to work which I then put my Klim pants and jacket, full face helmet and riding shoes all into the box. It all barley fits and I don't have to just jam the lid shut. Great box with many uses. I feel that it is on the over priced side but sometimes you just have to get what you need.

Perfect Fit for Super Tenere
I put this on top of a 2012 Black Super Tenere and I could not be more pleased. I replaced the OEM rack with the Altrider luggage rack and I used the Givi mounting hardware.
Installation was easy. It looks great!
I have factory side bags that don't open with this on but for everyday use I run with just the Givi Trekker topcase. It holds my Fred Flintstone lunchbox,ipad,rain gear, large thermas and large travel mug of coffee with lots of room to spare.
DURABILITY: I don't feel I can rate Durability but it is made of some tough plastic and the working parts ie: lock and hinges seem to be of good quality.
OVERALL VALUE: It Is Pretty Pricey but after a few weeks of use and one trip I am sure it is worth what I paid for it.
I wouldn't want to be without it!!

Install no great
Install was horrible.... directions were poor. Took only 10 min but should have taken 2. Its a good case but my XL Arai helmet XD4 barely fits and I feel I am scratching it when I close the case on it. It should be 1 cm taller. Not sure if a XXL helmet will fit; pending the brand of the helmet.

Cheaper than a HD Tourpak
I bought this box for a 3,500m tour around the mid-west USA. While it isn't cheap it's a lot cheaper than the HD Tourpak...half price in fact.
It's stable, solid, utilitarian and easy to mount to a HD detachable mount using the universal kit. A drill and a little patience is all that is required.
Plenty of space to my Jacket, laptop and helmet, didn't leak, easy to remove / reattach after a long day. Locking mech was easy to use and well thought out.
I fitted a triglide TP organizer to the the inside of the lid for and the optional E142 lid rack for more options.

Quick way to add convenient storage.
Out of the box this looked way too big, on the bike it looks great -- I'm glad I bought the big 52L and not a smaller one. It seemed cavernous at first but we all know how easy it is to fill these things up. Install was painless, it's really too new to comment on durability -- but so far so good.
My work laptop bag is fairly bulky, it just fits front to back and leaves less room than I expected side to side (again glad I bought the big one). Easily stores my SHOEI GT-Air helmet, gloves and boots with room to spare. Very pleased with the functionality. Only fair bang for the buck because I can't help but look at it and think it costs too much for the materials and manufacturing involved -- if the mounting plate had been included then it would be better bang for the buck.
It does hang off the back beyond the mounting plate more than I would've guessed, I'll be curious to see how it fairs long term given the bouncing it will take.

This has really been an excellent case for me. I commute to work and can store my helmet, boots, and overpants in the trunk with some room to spare.

Well made. Sturdy product with no defects. It's simply a giant plastic box with thin layer of aluminum slapped on. Big enough for two medium helmets.
