This is how the top box that made history has changed
Givi, a company proudly from Brescia, has covered almost 50 years of motorcycling history with its innovative products. A surely representative example is Maxia, the top-of-the-range top case with Monokey system with a large litre capacity.
Its history began in 1991 when Honda CBR900 and Africa Twin, Ducati 916, Moto Guzzi V11 were available in dealerships. It became the reference product and was also distinguished from the competition by its coloured lid. Then eight years later, in 1999, came the Maxia2 E52, which in the history of Givi is the best-selling model ever, so much so that it still survives today in the Kappa list under the name K53.
The Maxia2 is the first top case of Givi's house to be produced with gas injection moulding. In 2009 the Maxia3 E55 was presented, astonishing for a series of firsts. It is in fact the first to use reflectors, to have an automotive shape, position lights and opening activated by remote control. Maxia3 depopulated in the years of the Ducati Monster 1200, BMW K1300GT, Piaggio MP3 and Triumph Street Triple.
2014 arrived and the motorbike market welcomed the Maxia 4 V56, which stands out for its super sharp shape, Givi App-activated opening and a more structured frame. This year, finally, the Maxia 5 V58 has been added to the already rich Givi catalogue, which is totally new. It was born thanks to a new production philosophy, new construction techniques, different technical solutions and a greater attention to the environment. In these years of Maxia's history, many things have also changed in the motorbike market. Just think that we have gone from the Ducati 916 to the invasion of the electric.
At Givi, too, technique and design have changed profoundly, but not the desire to make our motorbikes more capacious and such apparently simple accessories more beautiful and functional. Only apparently...
