2. Scorpion EXO-R2000 Helmet $369.95 – $429.95


It would have been easy to stick one of those famous Japanese helmets onto this list for cool Father’s Day gifts, but there are many other players in the field of premium helmets. Some of them, like this Scorpion EXO-R2000, won’t hurt the bank account nearly as much. Starting at $369.95 for solid colors, the EXO-R2000 will give dad the same protection Alvaro Bautista enjoys each time he lines up on the MotoGP grid. In fact, Bautista provided much of the input for the 2000 during its design phase.

Featuring Scorpion’s proprietary Thermodynamic Composite Technology, its shell is formed from a five-layer blend of Aramid, fiberglass and poly-resin fibers to provide great protection. Fit is enhanced thanks to four different shell sizes for virtually any head out there. In addition, Scorpion’s cheekpad inflation system is also a neat feature to help customize the 2000’s fit even further. The emergency release system is a vital safety feature normally found on much pricier helmets, while the inclusion of a dark visor with every EXO-R2000 makes the price of entry a little easier to swallow. Scorpion USA is where to go for more information.

  • Over $100? That’s dreaming.

    heh heh heh. $65k for 1 bike. I could buy 12 bikes with $65k burning a hole in my wallet. Some of them even new!

    I think i’d feel odd riding a bike that costs more than my HOUSE. Much rather have several to play with 🙂

      Oh go ahead and wish for the bike. If you get one you can always sell it, pay off the house and buy a couple of fun bikes to play with.

    Ha ha ha, Harbor Freight!

    For the record, I like some of the items on this list.
    But picking on Harbor Freight is irresistible for a MOron like me.

      Harbor Freight tools are usually built to withstand lying on a flat, stationary surface. Applying any more force than that you are asking for trouble.
