Malaguti Spidermax - Honey, I Shrunk the Mercedes

While I liked the 40 something liter Givi top box on my Spidermax GT, it always looked a bit to big for my taste. There was no real harmony of the lines with the Spidermax rear design.
Looking for something new, the contemporary top boxes looked pretty much the same to me.

When I discovered the "Honey, I Shrunk the Mercedes" top box, I had to have it.
You have to see it to believe it.
Well, here it is:
the "Honey, I Shrunk the Mercedes and converted the rear into a top box"

The 30 Euro paint and a few hours work transformation
