Kappa K48N, it works.
14 February 2024 by Martin B
Was looking for a top box to fit my bike, it already had a Givi monokey rack when I bought it, and when I saw this one would fit, for about 1/4 of the price, I was a little sceptical. I was wrong, it does the job it's supposed to do. Quick delivery can't be knocked either.
A good piece of kit

I was surprised (nicely) when I received the box, it is a decent quality, easy to operate and was quickly delivered by SBS. It is light, compared to my Vario BMW Box and more spacious.
As good as Givi

Spacious and solidly built and cheaper than a Givi box of same size. The locking mechanism is different and requireds some practice.

Great value for money. Takes 2 helmets plus some gear. Sturdy fit on the bike and looks nice (for a top box). Also got the back rest which is an easy fit and feels much better for the pillion.
Great box

Good quality and fits a treat. Great service at Sportsbikeshop. I mentioned I needed it to hold 2 full face helmets and the salesman took two from the display and showed the lid secured fully with the helmets inside!!

I was delighted to recieve my Kappa box safely and quickly delivered. It is well made, roomy and fits perfectly on the givi bracket. The lock and fastener work perfectly and overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Nothing not to like. Was going to get a Givi, but got this at a fraction of the price, great box, just the job.
Great Top Box

Good looking top box and big enough for 2 x full face helmets. Same as Givi box but cheaper.
Other reviews say lock can be a little tricky to operate, but I sprayed a little WD40 onto mechanism and it works perfectly.

Making Life Easier
05 July 2020 by Chris W
For the past 3 years since I took up riding again I'd managed with a top box on loan from a mate. It was ok but only just big enough to get my new Nolan lid in so a larger box was always on my wish list. I keep an eye on promotions at Sportsbikeshop and this new Kappa box was a very good price and offered far greater capacity and being Monokey fixing a increased weight ability of up to 10KG.
The new box along with the new mounting plate was easy to fix onto my existing Monorack.
The locking mechanism on the new box is a bit fiddly but I'm getting used to it and I've got what seems to be a huge amount of space for the lid or shopping and I'm able to carry my waterproof trousers all the time just in case it rains , but it never does in the UK.
Construction of the box is very good and it closes fine and will be waterproof. It comes with two keys and the option of fitting the brake light kit in the rear red reflector which is a good safety option.
All in all a good practical purchase which will make life a lot easier.

I had a cheap box and decided to get a quality one. The Kappa is excellent, much more solid and uses the beautiful shaped M5 plate (the cheap one I had was too weak).
It also looks good sitting on the rear, and holds a lot of kit.
Definitely worth a look at.
I was also impressed by Spirtsbikeshop who took the order with friendly staff and delivered, all hassle-free.
Thank you
Kappa K48N Monokey Top Case

For the price this is very good. I bought this to replace my Givi which was cracked and leaked. The Kappa fitted perfectly on the Monokey bracket. My only minor criticisms are that the lock is a little fiddly and that it is not quite as sturdy as a Givi but for the price this is only a minor issue.

Great product

Had Givi branded before so no surprise to find this top box is up to the same standards, associated company after all. Purchased to stop carrying work kit on my back, fits my waterproofs, lock lunch box and laptop with ease. Monokey system means there is no issue with the weight either.

Best Monokey top box for the price

Usually Monokey top boxes from Givi cost twice as much but this Kappa top box (made by Givi) is just as good. It looks better in real life too.

Kappa K48N Monokey Top Case - 48 Litre

  • Waterproof polypropylene construction
  • Anti-scratch surface
  • Built in reflector
  • Storage for full face helmet
  • Compatible with specific Kappa stop light kit (sold separately)

Bike specific fitting kit required (sold separately).
Monokey is the fitting system for panniers and top cases popular with both bikers and scooter riders all over the world. Patented by GIVI, adopted by KAPPA, the Monokey system introduces the possibility of opening of the top case and the detachment of the case from the fitting plate with just one key. The universally famous mechanical characteristics permit the user to travel in complete security and confidence. It is also suitable for adventure use thanks to the system's high level of rigidity combined with compact and light components. The secret is the uniform distribution of the load on the plate surface, guaranteed by the three fitting points, which are placed in such a way as to give the widest possible contact surface. The damping of oscillation and vibration and the contact between the bottom shell and the plate are assured by four spacers made of elastic material, which are particularly resistant to extreme weather and temperature variation. Thanks to these keen design features a high level of fitting reliability is guaranteed even under the heaviest stresses and strains over the years.
