Givi V46 Tech Monokey Top Case
Expands the possibilities of my bike
The product has been a good addition so far. No noticeable impact on the ride (no additional noise or drag) and it allows me to both pack some gear for multi-day trips or simply stow my helmet away when I don't want it hanging around. I like the locking mechanisms and the ability to easily pop it on and off the bike.
Only drawback is that it was advertised as a 2-helmet top box, but it doesn't fit my helmet unless I put it sideways. Just unfortunate. My girlfriend and I both have HJC FG-17s, they aren't the biggest full-face so I really expected to be able to stow them, but it just won't happen. Oh well, that's what happens when you try and cut it close.

Perfect for my Versys
Was looking for something to allow me to carry more work stuff and this fit the bill. Highly recommend adding the light system; they multiplied my stock visibility tremendously. Only disappointment was does not hold my two helmets (XL & Small). Perhaps two if one is not an XL.

Excellent top case which really matches my 2014 BMW R1200RT
This is an excellent top case and much more economical than the BMW version. The only reason I downgraded the Ease of Install was not due to the top case but the installation of the top case holder which is specific to the bike. It was somewhat difficult to follow the instructions as it was all diagrams and no verbal help. A combination of the two would have been useful.

I bought 2 mounting brackets. Moving the top case from Honda St1100 to my Honda Reflex 250 is very fast and simple. Looking to add the lights next.

An excellent product. The locks and latch mechanism are extremely well engineered, as is the base plate and attachment mechanics. My installation required some customization, as I had non-Givi side racks, which caused the two post supports in the back to be misaligned with the base plate holes. The solution was fairly simple though: get two round-head metric screws to replace the flat-head screws that come with the base plate and drill new holes in the base plate where the posts end up once you've attached them to the bike. Use round head screws because you *don't* want to counter-sink the new holes.

Not too shabby
This box is very well put together and mounts solidly. It would be nice if it didn't cost so much, it's a box, but that's not RevZilla's fault. For the price I was expecting the latch for the lid to be metal, not plastic. It is high quality though, I'll keep it.
RevZilla had it to me two days after I placed my order!

Great OEM replacement
BMW top box is way too expensive and check all the forum comments on top boxes and Givi had great reviews. Checked Revzilla video and ordered. Once you get the key operating down, it is a great box. Also added the back pad.

Solid as can be
There's a reason everyone points to Givi when it comes to motorcycle luggage—their cases are just the best. This particular case has really impressed me, even though I knew to expect greatness. The interior size is great and the exterior size is no wider than my mirrors, so I don't have to worry about clipping anyone. I really like the document holder on the inside of the case for my registration and insurance docs. The interior lighting (with the optional kit) is wonderful and the extra tail light kit makes me extremely visible during night riding. Everything was very easy to install on my Kawi Ninja 650R.
The box itself is extremely sturdy, and the Monokey 3 point mounting system holds the case securely to the bike. No movement or "jiggle" at all when you try to move the case around on its mount. Through corners and at speed the bike is still extremely stable and the interior elastic straps definitely help to secure loads and keep them from flopping around. Also, the locking system seems to me to be very secure and I have a hard time imagining how someone could get through the plastic without an axe.
I'm extremely satisfied and would definitely go back to Givi again if I ever need another case.
