Givi V47 Tech Monokey Top Case
I already had the Monokey base on my R1100S BCR and this just snapped into place. I use this combined with the tank bag and I'm all set to take more stuff and ride all day!

Nice Finish and Good Looking
This top case looks create on my bike. It has plenty of room for my full face helmet, jacket and knee guards. It has a very nice and looking finish, very stylish. Also it the same as the "original" sold for this bike by the manufacture.

great fit and finish
I have looked a many options for a top box, this is the best I have seen.
I ordered the 56 lit. and then decided to go a little smaller and got the 47Lit.
Amazing fit and finish, great accessories.
You'll love this box.

great quality case, could use a little quality control
I'm not gonna state the obvious facts about this case - the case looks really nice and has an "OEM" feel to it especially when it matches the bike's matte black and carbon accents. The case looks like it belongs with the bike and not just put there as an afterthought. Free shipping and unbeatable price from Revzilla makes this an even more attractive deal.
the case was initially extremely hard to shut - to the point where I had to press my entire body on the lid for the latch to lock. I e-mail customer service and followed instructions from Filip - take out the gasket and reapply with some glue on bottom. The fix took less than 5 minutes; this holds the gasket in place and prevents it from pinching the lid. The lid not locks with minimal effort.
thanks Revzilla for quick shipping and excellent customer service, as always.

Good, but could be better
The case is a great size for my v-strom 650xt. It looks nice, mounts well and holds my helmet and/or jacket (not both). I usually end up chaining my helmet to the bike if I have to stow the jacket.
1 - there is no document holder included (thought from the review that it was included with Monokey). Also, there are none available to order at this time:(
2 - it's not super visible. There's very little reflectivity. The lower metallic strip in the middle is not reflective. Also, the light kits only light up the top lights. I have no idea why there's a big "light" section across the middle that has no functionality at all.
Another thing I noticed is that sometimes it's tough no know if the case is really latched or not. It would be great to have a 2nd catch so I don't have to worry about the lid flying up mid-ride if I didn't close it properly.
I will probably purchase an admore led kit to make this more visible. Otherwise, the case functions really well.
They key and lock are large and sturdy - not like the ridiculously small key that came with my suzuki OEM saddlebags.

Very good build / durability
As far as build, stuff inside never gets wet. Durability, very good I pack it with 25 lbs of stuff on long rides!!! I got the brake kit its a great addition for added visibility, easy to install and has been working for 2 years now.
DO NOT but the Givi mount for the VFR800 2002 and up, it stinks and the internet is littered with stories of it cracking etc. . Instead but the genuine Honda top box mount, built great. Then make a simple flat adapter plate with top box and bottom Honda bracket holes and bolt em down, its easy.
I'm now looking into whether Givi makes smaller boxes with the same mount bottom for those shorter rides where a heavier front wheel is nice !! BWAAP BWWAAPP

Just like every other Givi product I have owned - very well made and very functional.

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. !!!!
