The Honda top box is made for Honda by Givi.
I believe the Honda box uses a different mount than the Givi so if you go with a Givi box you will need the Givi mounting hardware.

I can confirm that the Honda box is made by Givi and uses a Honda mounting plate. A Givi box uses a Givi mounting plate which is different to Honda plate. I have the Honda box. My friend has the Givi box.

And the Givi boxes are available in several different sizes. Shad also makes some boxes that fit the ST.

Selecting the Givi box and mount will give you more options for sizes and would likely be significantly less expensive, albeit at the expense of aesthetics perhaps.

Just got the Givi Maxia E55. Lighter,good-looking.
Lock improved over the E52. Key is weirder, hard to duplicate.

Good idea, rembrandt, having smaller or larger Givi top boxes for different purposes. The E55 is pretty big. A more compact one helmet Givi box might be nice , in addition.

yeah go with Givi ... lots of options !

I kept my 52L Givi from my old ST1100 .... got the new bracket, had the top lid painted to match new bike and never looked back

these cases are the cat's meow and double as backrests too !

PS - that 55L case looks ... pregnant ....

The 2003 Silver Hondaline topbox is prettier and makes the bike go faster, especially if you add the rear spoiler.

Givi boxes are mud ugly. Honda box looks way better.
