    BMW top box, does a XXL helmet fit inside?

    Hi all,

    I am considering getting the BMW accesory top box for my C650GT 2016, but am wondering if a XXL full face helmet will fit inside it?
    Or should I be looking at a larger Givi box?

    Cheers!

    I'd recommend Givi.

    My Large fits with plenty of room all around so I'd guess "Yes" but your best bet would be to see if your dealer has a top box available for you to check (even if it's an accommodating customer who wouldn't mind you checking his scooter out). I think the BMW (by SHAD) looks better on the bike than the Givi. Using the BMW bag also means having to carry one less key since it'll use the same key you use for the ignition.

    My friend had an XL Schuberth C3 that had problems fitting. I'd try to check it first cause its expensive - if you can.

    Hi,

    Its okay, its not critical that the helmet fits as it fits fine under the seat, I have other uses for the top case. It would be nice tho...

    Cheers,

    The bmw top case is huge, your head would have to be grossly big for a helmet not to fit

    I definitely prefer the BMW top box. It looks good on the bike, matching colors and similar shape.
