I've seen some good prices on eBay (seller is 2nd-gear Motorcycle Deals out of Calgary). Currently has a E26N for $69.95 US, and an e260 for $84.95 US.
I haven't done business with them, so I can't vouch for them one way or the other.

There's also A Vicious Cycle in New Dundee, Ontario, who have the E30 for $85 CDN.

Cheap and Givi do not belong in the same sentence as each other.

I got my monokey rack and case from 2nd-gear Motorcycle Deals out of Calgary on eBay. I looked all over the west end of the GTA, and online. This was the best deal I could find. Great service, less than a week to deliver. Also got my Givi windshield from them last year.

I keep saying this, so IŽll say it again try Kappa - same manufacturer as GIVI, same quality but too lower price!

Kappa is nice, but it's not always cheaper.

I've been looking strictly at the Monolocks, since I already have the M5M plate for my Kappa rack, and I don't want to shell out another $60 for the M5 Monokey plate. I have the K35, but I wouldn't mind having something larger. So, I've been looking at the K46 ($219) vs the Givi E470 ($213). These are pretty much the same case.

If I was looking at the Monokey stuff, I can get the K49 for $299, or the Givi V46 for $296.

(Note: Kappa prices are via a search at Full Bore Marketing, who are the distributor in Canada. Look for 47-xxx where xxx = K35, K46, etc under the "check stock" link to find the price. Every dealership I've visited here quotes their price.)

Is Kappa always cheaper? Not necessarily.

Strange you say that Dave since the same set up with GIVI would have cost me around 300 euros more than Kappa.

I guess it all depends on where you are. There appear to be few importers for Kappa in North America, so they can charge whatever they want for them.

I suspect it's easier to get the Kappa stuff in Europe.
