Rear top box

Does the Givi top box come with its own rack underneath or do I have to buy a separate rack. Cant seem to find the answer. Thanks.

You have to get a rack, either Givi or maybe SW Motechs Alu-rack which needs an adapter plate to mount many makes of top box.

The Monolock series comes with it's own base and will bolt up to any rack that excepts any Givi base
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Givi do two main types of case MonoLOCK and MonoKEY....each requires a specific rack plate. Later V type cases also require V type fittings...best to buy secondhand as a complete set up

Do what I did........
I got the Givi top case mount, without a base plate.
Then used a Shad top case, which comes with it's own
base plate.
This was the cheapest way to go... :016:

Givi rack part# is : Givi 1121FZ Top Case Support Bracket Kit Honda CB500X 2013-2019

I am planning to buy a Givi V47 and i am afraid that it will be too big for this bike...
Honda suggest a 35L top box.
If someone has the same top case, Givi V47, i will be pleased to see a picture.
Thanks!

I have a V47, and I think it is the perfect size.

Did you ever get the 47? I've just picked up my new CB and would rather not strap a milk crate to it ;) The dude who posted a pic of his, also had side cases. I wonder if the 47 would seem too huge without those.  Seems these top cases are quite expensive. Anyway...any experience you can share would be appreciated.
