Has anyone ordered a Givi case from inside the US ? I contacted Givi USA and was told that they would not order a case and fitting kit for me for my GT200. Bear.

GIVI Top Case
I purchased a GIVI Micro Top Case from Motorsportscooters.com. Installation was very easy after I bought longer screws than what were supplied, but I am very pleased with the extra room for my full face helmet, gloves and sunglasses.

My local dealer keeps them in stock and both look like very nice boxes. The large one is really large!

Twisted Throttle
Twisted Throttle was great for my Givi case.

Tim







The price $140.77 delivered from Twisted Throttle. The E30 case is also available in matte black for $85.14 and $98.29 delivered, this is a nice alternative from the Vespa case.

Yes it fits an XL HJC full face helmet with a little room to spare.

The GIVI Cases look nice, my Vespa topcase is ok, but I need more room.

Tim - how well does the silver GIVI match up with your ET? The photo is a bit dark to tell. Is yours Platinum silver or Excalibur silver?

Givi doesn't make a case to match the Dragon Red of my GTS. Does anyone have any idea how much it might cost to get it painted to match?

I know I could do it myself using spraycans, but I'd really like it to look professionally done.

I think the color is right on for my Excalibur silver scoot. I could take another picture for you if you'd like but it might not be util later in the week.

The Givi V46 topcase has a number of color options available. Essentially, the cover has an integrated lid that you can swap out. There's a "candy apple red" (C46R301), as well as the ST1300's red (C46R346) available stock. If neither of those is spot on, just get the lid spray painted. That would be a cinch job btw, since there'd be nothing to mask.

You'd have to decide whether the V46 is too big a case for the GTS.

We have lots of different Givi Cases. Givi makes a case that has different color plates that can be attached to the case to match your bike. They are in the process of making a series of these plates to match the Vespa line. They are not available yet. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, I have lots of flat black Givi cases which hold full face helmets and more.

I saw a V46 on a GT200 (then Rolf's, now Glasseye's bike) and it looked awesome. If I ever get a case, it will be the V46.

Holy cow! That beats the snot out of the Vespa price! Now I may have to adjust my wish list!

Is anyone else having weird problems with the Twisted Throttle site? I tried to sign in with my password, and it keeps signing me in (and apparently someone else, too) under the username "username" - and doesn't acknowledge my id and password, even if I reset the password. I've tried on three different browsers. I've never had this problem with their site before.

Crystal,

I took some pictures of the silver Givi case with my Excalibur ET4 today. Hope they help.

Thank you, Tim, for the photos, they are very helpful. It looks great on your scooter. Any idea what the big difference is between the Platinum pain and the Excalibur paint? I've never seen them side by side, but it looks the same to me from here.
