Who makes the low profile top box on Wings that I've seen in vids in GB and EU? It looks to be only about 6 inches in height and maybe 16 inches wide. Looks like it was made to carry a laptop and paperwork.

Dunno about what options, other than the traditional Givi and Shad cases, might be available in the UK or EU, but you might want to tale a look at some Pelican protective cases or Seahorse cases.

Police radio boxes come in various sizes, including low profile.  They are pricey new so I'd recommend eBay.  You could also try Harley or other motorcycle dealers that resell ex-police bikes.  My local dealer trashes the radio boxes and solo seats and adds a dual seat before reselling.

A couple large ones (NIB) came with my Kawasaki ex-police bike.  Couldn't sell them for $50 each.  Gave one away and trashed the other.

Toolman,
I don't know if you mean the OEM Honda box, which is what I've got on my Wing. It's a good bit bigger than 16" x 6", 45 litres capacity, costs around £260 ($340) new, if you can find one, and will take two full face helmets. (Except mine won't now, 'cos my new Caberg Duke has a bigger shell than my old helmet, so if we're 2-up, one helmet has to go under the seat!)

Think he was looking for a low-profile box.

The other genuine Honda accessories top box specifically for the Silver Wing SW-T 600 and 400 is a weird looking 40 litre monstrosity with a low sides and a curved central hump to accommodate the built in back rest. It costs about €250. It may be curvy but the shape makes it impractical.

Get a proper big box you can put things in!
But as Meldrew mentioned there is a pointless lumpy thing available if that's what you want.

I believe what I've seen might be the factory Honda box. Does anyone have a pic of this box?

I've got the genuine Honda top box on mine, you can fit loads in it plus most importantly a case of 24 beers!

£260!!! Good grief.
Mine came with the bike so it didn't reLise what they cost. I use mine for a bit of secure storage, but now I realise the box is worth far more than what I keep in it!
I expect I'll come back one day to find my camera, gloves etc on the floor and the box gone lol!

I've noticed that particular Honda top box seems to be fitted to a lot of used Silver Wings that are currently for sale. The same top box is fitted to lots of used Deauvilles too. They are expensive for a 45 litre top box, but I remember a few years ago they used to be part of the free £500 Honda accessories package used to shift both models in Autumn.

Mine was on the Wing when I bought it as well. Don't think I would have paid that much - I had a Givi the same size on my old Burgman that cost less and came with the mount!

I've bought my last two topboxes (for SW and PCX150) from eBay. Both were at a substantial discount, and both were Honda-branded. I've forgotten the exact details but both were advertised as for other Honda models but I was able to determine that they would fit on the rack fitted on my bike.
