    For a helmet to fit in the frunk it has to be empty, except for maybe a couple of items that you could put inside the helmet when you stow it. To ride around with such a handy box empty seems to me to defeat the handiness of it. You can place the helmet on one of the mirrors, and with a small padlock you can lock the helmet D rings to the mirror stalk. Then the frunk can be stuffed with neat stuff which will bring you great joy.

    Ah, but if you have a big head then you have enough room to stuff a good bit of stuff in the helmet

    My helmet fits without those attached (Shoe RF-1000), but does not fit when I put either on.
    My GoPro 4 Session mount is on the left forward chin bar on my Qwest, so with the camera off the mount it fits. It would not fit with a mount glued to the side or the top.

    I went helmet shopping at the Honda dealer this morning and, despite an epic selection--nothing fit in the frunk (though I did not try the $600 Shoei helmets).

    So, I ordered another of the one I already had--HJC CL Max II, modular, in a new color.



    ^That fits, in the 2XL size. It is not a super tight fit, and required no frunk mods. (I had to replace the old helmet as I was wearing it in an accident).

    Side note, they had 4 new NC700's on the showroom floor.

    EDIT--Picked up the new 2016 helmet and it's still an easy fit. A decent buy for about $160.

    When first reading that phrase, I chuckled. Being that a head is usually what we put in a helmet, I would certainly expect the helmet to be empty when placed in the frunk!

    I guess this is just a case of an ambiguous antecedent to the pronoun it.

    I agree, the frunk has to be empty for a helmet to fit in. But only in the moment you want to fit the helmet in. So, if you put only stuff into the frunk, that you need at your destination (hiking-gear, towel, speedos, etc.), you have no problem.

    My scorpion exo-gt920 has to be turned slightly to fit in my 52l trunk so i know it won't fit in the frunk.
    I get 63 MPG, what do you get? Speeding tickets?
    I pack to camp but stay in a hotel because I have no idea what I'm doing...
