Givi V47 Tech Monokey Top Case
I bought this case for my new R1200RT since I had been pleased with the Givi V46 on my old R1200RT.
The special adapter plate required for this case on the RT is expensive and hard-to-find, but that's my only complaint.
The fit and finish have been improved over the V46 and the locking mechanism is much better.
I spent about $480 for the case and mounting adapter. The price for the equivalent factory top case is $1,345. !!!!

It is a little bigger than the E460 that I was using and now everything fits in this top case now.

Concours 14 ultimate upgrade.
This is the best trunk for the Concours 14. Went to Americade in Lake George New York this past weekend putting over 1000 miles, and I couldn't be happier with this trunk. Plenty of space, and I didn't even know it was back there. I used the Phils Farkels luggage rack with this trunk and it is awesome. Revzilla's price was better than anywhere else for this trunk, and it shipped fast.

Great product and nice styling
I was looking for something for a trip to yellow stone to pack for a day long road trip. It has plenty of storage and looks good. I also bought the back rest pad to keep my wife happy on the ride.

Givi is a well known brand and makes excellent products. the V47 does not disappoint. It is roomy enough for my full face modular helmet and extra stuff. It pops on and off with a turn of the key and push of a button. A great product.

Great look !!!!!!!
I have a BMW K1200S 2005. i was looking for a top case with a nice looking style according to my bike style.
I really like the color and the design of this top case, is very light weight, when i was riding my bike i didn't feel any difference.
I have to say that in order to be able to install this top case in my bike, i bought separately a full mounting system. and has to be very specific for this motorcycle.
But, I'm very happy with the look of my bike with this top case

Roomy and easy to use
Easy to take on and off of the bracket using the key and the large button. There is a separate button near the bottom to remove the unit from the bracket. It comes with a pair of keys. So far it has made my daily commute so much easier because I bundle up in the morning and wear normal gear in the afternoon (Nor Cal) and toss all my heavy cold weather gear in the trunk on my way home. I won't likely use it too much when summer comes around because I have a NC700x and it has its own front between my legs. I will go over why I marked this trunk down in certain areas.
Bang for the Buck:
This trunk was one of the more affordable options. I am concerned about the latching system malfunctioning over time. The latch is a little hard to close. It takes both hands and the little lips to close it are tiny. Remember, you probably wearing gloves when you go to open it. There are little holes to add LED lights. Why sell half a product? Where are the lights? Well they are $130 and not included. While it was on the cheaper side, it was still over $250. Don’t forget you will need a mounting plate designed for your bike. Also not included for around $90-$130.
Ease of install:
So on my NC700X, the install was fairly simple. My bike is set up for a trunk and adding one on was really easy. The bolts needed to hold the arms on were already on my bike holding the little handle bars on the sides. I was able to purchase a set of "damaged" plate arms from Revzilla for much cheaper, it worked great thanks! Once you get the arms and the plate tightly secured, the trunk comes on and off in about 4.6 seconds. Pop the key in, turn, push release button. Now you have a plastic suitcase because the case has a handle built in. A nice touch.
Like I mentioned before, the door latching system looks a little fragile. So far, it's working but I feel like last as long as my bike does. My bike has a real time MPG meter and with the trunk on my MPG drops 15-25 MPG due to the added drag from the flat backing. Even so, my NC gets amazing MPG around 50 MGP @ 70 MPH with trunk on. Not a deal breaker for me, though 60-70 MPG is way more fun. I have no way to myth bust this, I'm just going off my own observation. I can feel the added drag at highway speed. Again, no lights?
Excellent! It looks great, no complaints. All good.
It's doing great so far. Not a scratch. I'd improve the latch system, too hard to close. I'm afraid it will break. I hope I am wrong.
Over all, I do recommend it because it really comes in handy. The ability to pull it on and off in seconds really makes this trunk an excellent choice for any bike. Maybe not a cruiser, I know you have to look super cool and all. This might look too dorky. One of these days I want to put the LED's in for more visibility.
