Don’t actually think we could like this design anymore than we already do – it is pretty much a perfect blend of classic and iconic motorcycle imagery, coupled with modern shape and design.

The helmet features a solid black base, with a checkered flag print that runs around the base. The iconoc ‘Norton’ logo is positioned in gold text at the front of the helmet, with a ‘union jack’ flag on the sides.

Product Description:
Launched in December 2008 after a full season’s testing by Arai’s MotoGP and Grand Prix riders, the RX-7 GP replaces the Corsair as its range-topping helmet and is completely new from construction right through to the visor. The structural net composite (SNC) shell with peripheral belting and enhanced hyper ridge strengthening in the lower section represents Arai’s most advance design to date. Other benefits from the new construction include a larger opening to make the helmet more comfortable when putting it on and off and with the centre of gravity moved lower, the helmet sits more naturally to help reduce fatigue. Changes to the quick release visor have increased peripheral vision while the switches on the vents are now bigger, making them easier to operate wearing gloves. Between the trademark twin diffusers is now a five-position air wing, designed to reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting.
