Biketek Top Box £49.99 Tester Alison Sil­cox Time tested 700 miles/ four months

What’s good? I love my top box! There I’ve said it and I feel much bet­ter that it’s out in the open. This 48-litre box looks vast perched on the rear of my Honda SH125 but hav­ing so much space makes life easy on my daily com­mute. It swal­lows up lunch, gym kit and lap­top with ease plus, once ow off off the scooter , i can stow my own lid and gloves plus a friend’s. When loaded it doesn’t im­pact on the han­dling of the bike, even af­ter a visit to the lo­cal su­per­mar­ket to top up on vi­tal sup­plies (wine)!

There’s a re­flec­tive strip cov­er­ing a large area, that im­proves my vis­i­bil­ity and it gives me great peace of mind.

The lid fits se­curely and is com­pletely wa­ter­tight, even in the wettest of win­ter storms. The lock­ing mech­a­nism is sturdy and it comes with a spare key, just in case. The box is a uni­ver­sal fit and comes com­plete with all the nec­es­sary fit­ments. What’s not? I re­ally strug­gle to find fault with this piece of kit, if I did want to be picky it could do with a lit­tle net­ted sec­tion to se­cure loose items or keep liq­uids up­right.
