I am thinking or getting a Moda and was wondering if anybody knew if a full face helmet would fit under the seat?
Also does anybody know if a pair of 12v heated gloves would work ok with this bike?November 28, 2017 at 7:34 am #4390Paul IOMParticipant
The heated gloves should work fine as the lights etc are on a 12v circuit.
Regarding helmet space, if you search the forum I’m sure this has been discussed before, from memory it is tight but certain helmets will fit.November 28, 2017 at 8:10 am #4391Ken FergusonKeymaster
Yes you are quite correct some helmets will fit but not all.
My advice would be to drive it to a helmet shop and try a few out.

I was really hoping to get a helmet under the seat of my Moda but there’s very little chance of that. The shops only sell helmets that cover a lot of your head nowadays, presumably because the regulations seem to have been tightened up. I bought a helmet for my 10 year old daughter only a few weeks ago and the only options were either an open face item that covered the ears and the side of the face or a proper full face. Even though she took the XS/kid size of both helmets to try, neither fitted under the seat. I’m not really sure what sort of legal helmet would.
That’s not to say it’s a small space though… I get plenty of things under there, it’s way bigger than what you can get under the seat of a sports bike! Also the seat back is a useful out the way spot to secure a second helmet using a bungee cord to the grad rail.
