Top Box

Hello

Purchased my multistrada 950S in December last year.

While generally I love the bike Iíve found getting accessories for it to be an absolute nightmare!

The screen has been a huge issue for me for starters which Iíve now got the best Iíll ever get it, despite not perfect by any stretch, with the spacers off eBay and the gran turismo screen (finding aftermarket ones wasnít easy for this)
I then wanted a centre stand and couldnít find any reliable after market brands at all so ended up with the expensive official one.
Iíve looked into slip ons for a little more roar and they all seem very underwhelming without doing a decat which I wouldnít dream of doing.

Now Iím looking for a top box and would you believe it... Iím struggling again.
Givi one of the biggest sellers of top boxes donít make a rack for this or similar bikes I.e. enduro 1200 as far as I can tell. Only sw motech Iíve found make one. And their boxes are a joke price wise. The official one is just laughable.

Has anyone got any advice on this and what is good?

    See the"Trunk Plate" thread on here - I purchased and fitted rack from Ducati to use with my existing topbox - around £225

    I have a Givi maxia topbox which fits perfectly - as far as i am aware the Ducati topbox is a Givi V46 or V47 just branded.
    As others have said, any Ducati dealer should be able to order the parts - where did you buy the bike ?

    Hi  SmithSta92, you might benefit from spending a few minutes learning to use the search features of this site. 'Topbox' and 'screen' both return lots of hits and while it is not that common to use a 3rd party center stand on a bike, the hits did include genuine ones for sale.

    You can get top box and rack from Shad for a very reasonable price.

    Hi Smithsta, I use the Ducati/Givi standard rack with a Givi Trekker Dolomitii 30L top box. The box is a nice size and although it wouldnít take a helmet I find very useful for day runs, plus I think it suits the bike. (See Photo Gallery.)

    Iíve got a Shad box on my 950s. Compared to others reasonably priced.
