    I would like to get a top box/top case for my 2013 TTSE.  My wife would like to have a back rest. 
    I would be interested in seeing what there is, whether it is Triumph, Givi, or something else.

    The advantage of the Triumph top box (with the appropriate sliding carrier) is that it includes a power feed and 12v socket within. I always have a rechargeable torch plugged into mine. The electrical connector can take two additional connecting pins/sockets also, enabling additional rear lights or brake lights to be fitted to the top box without too much effort (there are various posts regarding such an update on this forum). There is also a backrest available for the Triumph box.

    The disadvatage of the Triumph top box is probably the double-skinned construction that means the inside space is less than you might expect. I don't think that it will take two full-face helmets (never tried, so I'm prepared to be corrected here). It's also a heavy thing if you were likely to remove it often.

    I had a large Givi top box on my old BMW, which also had built-in brake lights, and a connector that still allowed detachment whenever required (as the Triumph). It was lighter, well made and did take two full-face helmets. I'm fairly sure that a backrest is also available for most Givi top boxes, as well as an additional luggage rack for the top. It's probably the cheaper option also.

    However, for a neater install, and the integrated look, I would prefer the Triumph version.

    Hope this helps.

    I have the Triumph top box and I'm pleased with it. It was quite pricey, but it is of good construction, has the electrical outlet inside, and is quite roomy. I use the electrical outlet to charge my I-pad and phone while I'm riding. My helmet fits in it, if I move the junk and I think two would fit with little else in it. The one thing I like about it over the Givi I have on my Tiger is it can be opened without the key or it can be locked if needed. Hopefully this will be helpful. :152:

    A number of us use a Givi top box, I use a 46 Liter monokey case.  It is lighter and I can use it on multiple bikes.  You can also find them used at times much cheaper than MSRP.

    There are a few threads here on how the adapter plate was mounted.  Givil also sells a back rest to go on the case if that is important to you.  Another brand is Shad (sp?), which I have no experience with.

    Good luck and ride safe.

    I haven't tried 2 helmets in the top case, but I'm pretty sure that if they will fit they will need any comm unit removed.  Either my Nolan N104 or my Scorpion AT950 will both fit in a side case of the Trophy's luggage without the comm (Sena) unit on them.  Both the Sena units i have come off really quick and easy if necessary so it's not a big deal, and being able to use a side case means when I'm not traveling far enough and long enough to need all the luggage I can stow a helmet safely out of the way when I park for a while.  Once my back is OK to pick up my top box I'll check to see if 2 of my modular helmets will fit.

    I have used the Triumph top box to store 2 Bell Star helmets with comms on them. One helmet upside down helps.
