Here are the pics of the mounting plate, themounted Givi E52 on my GT and the two last shots show the bottom of the rack and how the mounting plates attach under the stock tack.
While the plate is removable in a few minutes, I never take it off because I quickly got used to how it looks without the topcase. I got the bag in gloss black to match my black painted GT. While the rack comes off/on in ten minutes it is a bit fiddly. If you only plan to use the topcase once in a while you could remove it.
I found I use the topcase more than I originally planned as it so nice to have the extra space for a spare jacket, helmet or computer in a bag.
