V46 - MONOKEY®
The wide reflector, the new opening system and the central "cover" on the case top shell, make V46 a top case set apart from the rest.
With its 46 litre capacity, this top case can hold 2 standard shell full face helmets thus making it the ideal travel solution for mid/long range trips.
The MONOKEY® patented system is a distinguishing characteristic of GIVI production. It allows you to open and detach the case from the fixing plate by means of one sole key.
EASY, SOLID and SAFE, these are the main characteristics, which made this system a landmark for the motorcycle industry worldwide.
Thanks to this system, all the cases and plates of the monokey range combine the best characteristics of mechanical resistance and rigidity of the fitting, with features using compact and light components.
The uniform distribution of the load on the plate surface is guaranteed by the three fitting points, which are placed in such a way to obtain the widest possible contact surface, while the damping of oscillating and vibration between the bottom shell and the plate are assured by four spacers made of elasticised polymer, which is particularly resistant to extreme weather and temperature variation

The importance of this feature for a motorcycle case is clear to all motorcyclists. In order to obtain it, a high rigidity of the structural profiles of both the lid and the bottom shell is essential. These should not only fit in the most natural way, but also maintain their form in the most diverse and severe conditions: The larger the dimensions of the case are, the more difficult this is to achieve.
The study of the materials and of the tolerances of the different components is therefore imperative in order to limit to the highest degree the expansion that occurs with temperature variations and atmospheric pressure changes (such as exposure to sunlight in summer or to rigorous climate and bad weather)
The care in assembling, that is done without the drilling of any holes in the external surfaces of the case, and the seals placed in the recess designed specifically in the top shell, are of paramount importance in the general water tightness of the case, above all when it used as a side pannier.
GIVI has been applying technology known as ‘gas injection’ for its production for some time: during the injection of the plastic material in the mould, by means of special nozzles, nitrogen is injected so that a pressurised cavity is created, which runs along the whole profile of both the bottom and the top shell. In this way a high structural rigidity is obtained, and consequently sturdiness, resistance and water tightness this also reducing the overall weight of the case, since the thickness of the supporting structure has been reduced.
