Guide To Purchasing Givi Top Boxes
Buying Givi luggage can be a confusing process if you're not familiar with the products or terminology.
Firstly, you'll want to consider the carrying capacity that may be required; What are you planning on carrying in your Givi topbox? - The smallest in the Givi range is 26 litres, and the largest is 55 litres.
A 26 litre top box will accommodate one full face helmet, but with very little room to spare.
Givi top boxes with a capacity from 30 to 42 litres will take one full face helmet, with room to spare for other items such as a set of waterproofs.

45 litre (and upwards) top boxes can accommodate a single full face helmet and other clothing such as waterproofs and a bulky motorcycle jacket. This is an ideal solution if you want to park up your bike and leave all your gear safe and secure.

Next you'll want to consider the type of box you'll need. Givi have two types of top box: Monolock or Monokey.
Monokey boxes are double-walled and are more of a 'heavy duty' luggage solution, whereas Monolock boxes are a more 'lightweight' option, with a lower recommended weight tolerance. Most Monolock boxes are supplied with a universal base plate which will allow you to fit the top box to your bikes existing sports rack. Once you've decided on the size and type of box, the final things to consider are the style of your top box (which particular design), and also the colour of your top box. Most of the top boxes come as standard in black; this is also the cheapest option, however many boxes are also available in metallic silver, and some are even available in colour matched options for particular motorcycle models. If we don't have the colour you require listed on our website, you can call or email us and we can let you know the price and availability of your desired Givi top box.
Don't forget, with most boxes you'll need a bike specific rack or fitting arms. If you can't find the correct fitting kit for your bike but believe there is one available from Givi, chances are we will be able to get it for you. Simply drop us an email or call us on 01392 467700.
