Default Re: Honda Trunk or after-market?

I'm with Tim on this one. The Hondaline definitely looks like it was designed to be part of the ST1300. It also sits just a little bit lower than any of the other trunks, not sitting up in the air like the Givi or the others. The Hondaline has a small indention that allows it to sit down "over" the rear platform.

I found a used one for less $. Same thing for the spoiler. Might try posting here saying you're looking for one for sale or try searching eBay, etc...

The Honda fits form and function, and looks stock. The Givi looks, well, after-market.

Or, if you are happy with the after-market look, and think Sta-n-tune pipes look cool, then go Givi.

I went with the Hondaline; I think it looks better. I'm not sure if the Givi requires an adaptor, but the Honda box can be removed to reveal a "stock" looking rack. Depending on the value of the pound compared to the dollar, the price isn't always as bad as some believe. David Silver Spares is a good vendor to work with - fast and accurate. Either box will serve you well, but I favor the Honda. It's largely personal aesthetics, though.

A Hondaline Topbox down in Australia was quoted to me at $1800. Needless to say I told them where they could stick their Topbox.

Result: I bought a Givi E470 and had the top panel colour-matched. It all worked out at $500. Mounting plate came with it. Very happy, looks good and holds 2 x Full Face helmets.




Worth a thought.

David Silver here in the UK are currently pricing 2010 model Honda topboxes at 299 (= Aus$477?) plus post and packing. Surely that can't take the price up to $1,800 (can it?).

It should be noted that two full face helmets fit comfortably into Honda Top Boxes. When I bought my ST new in Oct 08 I was quoted $810 (AUSD) for a Honda top box and mounting kit. As I was lucky enough to be paying cash, I was able to convince the dealer to include the top box in the deal at no cost.

When I bought my (used) '06 ST1300, it had a large Givi case already mounted. Would catch a lot of air and wind gusts would move the m/c around quite a bit. Sold the Givi on a forum and bought the Hondaline top case from David Silver Sparrow and found the the lateral movement of the top case was helpful in dealing w/ wind gusts/turbulence causing less movement of the m/c. Wanted to buy the spoiler but like others have said, it's pricey.

I can vouch for David Silver. 50 miles from my house. I order my service spares online. I've been to his warehouse and he attends most of the UK bike shows. I've been buying from him for 25+ years.

I have a GIVI V46 colored to match my bike with a brake light kit and passenger backrest. It's very nice, looks good, made well and holds a lot. I don't believe you would be disapointed.
