Default Re: New Nicky Hayden lid by Arai

I wish Nicky well and all, but $700 for a lid?



Hope he's getting a fair chuck of change from Arai for this.

Clearly, this is a press release. You should state as much at the beginning of the article.

7 bills for a lid? I'd tell Arai to go $#@! themselves....that's rediculous. Still, i'm sure the ricky racer clone croud will just HAVE to get one ;P

I can get a Quality Arai or AGV for half of that and get custom paint job for less than that. Bleh!



I know it's Nicky, but it's not even that pretty.

It's cute, but have you seen Melandris' Spiderman helmet and leathers? Sweet! And I don't even give a poot about Spiderman.

Default $700 for a helmet?

Are you kidding? "Ricky Racer" can't justify $30 for gloves let alone $700 for a helmet. They usually wear whatever helmet the dealer through in (around here it's the HJC CL-12 9 times out of 10).



Real racers, of course, buy whatever design is on closeout from last year to save a few bucks.



It's guys like me that don't have a racing addiction to feed and aren't saving pennies to buy a new Ti exhaust that get these. See, we need to off set our Aerostich Roadcrafters and other elments of practical motorcycling. (functional luggage, waterproof boots, heated grips)

Agreed. News is news, press releases are press releases. Confusing one with the other is bad.



I trust MO will take care of this without anyone having to go KPaul on the subject.

Congratulations, you just initiated what may become one of the best inside jokes in which we can all share from now on.

There's no denying Arai is a great helmet, but I think the Hayden design is butt ugly. I want a Pridmore replica HJC AC-10 helmet, about half the cost of the Hayden.
