Givi V46 Monokey Top Case
When I pulled it out of the box, I immediately thought it would look out of place on my V-Strom. However, once installed, the size of the Strom tank and this top case actually balance each other out. Pic is included, although it may be tough to see my perspective. Not sure if I will get 2 helmets in it, my S2 is a bit bulkier than other full helmets. Otherwise, this case will hold a lot of stuff. The color scheme works perfectly with the bike too. It will be garaged most of the time, so if the finish and durability hold up over the long term, it deserves 5 stars in Bang for the Buck. Really happy over all.

Latch won't lock
I got this case on a used motorcycle. The PO said that it was possible to lock the case, but at the time he couldn't do it. I can't either. Yes I've seen the videos. No, they didn't help. Either something is missing in the latch, or the latch just does not work.
Givi is no help either. Their customer service forwarded me yet another copy of those stupid videos about how to get the trunk to latch. IT DOES NOT LATCH.
No service available. It just DOES NOT LATCH. I have a bungee cord around it.

The case looks great and add so much storage!
I am so glad I purchased this case. I was looking to add storage to my scooter at a reasonable price, and this is exactly what the case did. It also looks really great. I also added the lighting kit, and it makes the case pop out and helps with adding visibility to the rider. This was a great purchase and I would totally recommend it to my friends! If you're thinking about getting one, just get one, well worth the money!

Holds 2 bags of groceries and great for long trips
If you have a modern bike and need cargo space, you should get a 46 liter or larger. I also use it for a suit case when riding from SF to Portland and Seattle. It can also hold a large helmet and has room for more.

Solid build. Great fit and finish.
I'm Impressed with the quality of this case. Everything seems to be very well engineered. I thought it was going to look huge on my 06 Sv650, but it looks fine and is the perfect size, I actually wish it was a little bigger. My 2015 HJC helmet fits on it's side in the case, but I have to remove my sena for the lid to close without problems.

Great case, low profile for size
I already had a givi mount on my bike when I bought it so there were good reasons to go with this case. That said, the case itself is pretty awesome. Lots of room to store stuff! I can fit my jacket with armor in there no problem. On longer trips it will easily fit a large map book as well.
It is wider and has a lower profile than the BMW cases and doesn't look nearly so ridiculous.
Strongly suggest the admore LED kit to go with this case. The givi light kit only lights up the little round reflectors.

Givi V46 Monokey Trunk
Previously the flagship top box of Givi, I find this size of top box to be the perfect size for my scooter. It allows me to carry a little more things while commuting or traveling.

Exactly what it says
It's definitely worth the money. I was thinking about getting a smaller one but I'm really glad I didn't. This can easily fit my helmet (with a sena headset) along with other gear. I haven't tried putting two helmets in but it sure seems like they'd fit. The locking system is very easy to use and seems to hold it shut very well, even with a large (almost too large) load. The document holder is a bit hard to open, you just have to kind of pry it (unless I'm doing something wrong). Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase, Revzilla was great as always
