Givi V46 , E55 or E52

Hi all just a quickie, Im on the verge of buying a top box, but after hours wading through this forum im still undecided.

is there much size difference between the Givi V46, E52 or E55.

Has anyone any pics of the E52 or E55 mounted to the "V"
Has anyone bought say a V46 and decided to exchange it for the E series.

cant see there being much difference in the E52 and E55 can you ???

Will the E series be too big????,
Thing the V46 looks fine.

Any advicewould be great fellas/fellaess's

I have an E52 with AdMoreLighting LED lights and it works great. I can get a helmet and jacket in it with all of the assorted stuff that I always care in it. http://cid-b8e84c6bbce8f689.skydrive...MG%7C_1665.jpg

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

You can also save a ton of money by buying
the large JCWhitney top case. I am impressed
with the quality and it was under $50. There
is an unbelievably long thread about it over
at ADVriders forum. Fits the Givi mount but
is supplied with a similar mount.

Follow the instructions exactly for ordering.

Wooooowwwww that e52 look massive looking from the assss, Im thinking bigger the better though, for luggage wise, Yer they do an E55 in the uk, just seems silly for an extra 3 litres.

You put in the key, turn to unlock, push the unlock button and pull. Takes a few seconds.

Those topcase come off with a push on the unlock button and pull (pretty fast).

Had a Givi maxia E52 previously.
If thinking about not using the panniers, IMHO, the maxia E52 or E55 is the way to go. A few V bikers here have removed their panniers to beat the traffic on the way to work.
They look nice and plenty of space for 2 full face helmets.
Plus with the wider array of LED connected to the rear light, pretty impressive and early warning to others at night.

Thanks

I'd like some input on this question as I was going to purchase the V46 from Twisted Throttle in the next day or so...

I Bought The V46 And V 35's At Bike Week This Year From Givi. They Did Free Installation. I Had The E 52 On My Bike And It Just Looked To Big For My Taste. I Fit My Helmet . Lunch , Heated Jacket, And Several Other Things In The V46 And Still Have Room To Spare. I Had The Jc Whitney Top Box And Paid About 90 Bucks For It, But When I Put The Panniers On It I Had To Buy The Matching Top Case. If Anybody Is Looking For A Cheap Top Case I Have One.

Again I'll state personally I've no desire to get anything bigger than my V46 top box. does everything I need, and looks great while doing it. Just my opinion, but with my E41 side cases it's a great threesome.
