If you are looking to keep the price down these knock off Givi trunks can be found in various places on the net and they come with their own mounting plate. Looks like Amazon has the best prices. The only thing you need on your bike is some sort of rear rack to attach their mounting plate too. You can easily take the bog off and just have the mounting plate there which isn't that intrusive.
I can tell you from experience on these cheap ones, don't ever slam the case down on the locking mechanism without actually unlocking it and pushing in the button. You can do it with the Givi's, but I actually broke the lock mechanism on one of these some years back.
Amazon has the smaller one for under $30 - http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Deta.../dp/B008OIUQXG
