Ducati Helmets - Post Pics and Provide Opinions!

Opinions on the the currently available Ducati "branded" or Logo'ed helmets? Post pictures of your favorite helmets. Im debating on getting one so just looking for some good input! Id actually like a Ducati one, I already have ones that aren't Ducati branded. Thanks!

The Ducati helmet in my AVATAR is a great design (that's why I purchased one) and is based on the Arai Vector 2.

It's not so brilliant in the wet if you have the visor 'unlocked', which you normally do to stop the fogging. Seems that rain + unlocked visor = wet on the inside!

To stop it getting chipped to death, I have applied the 3M film. So far so good.

I have the Ducati Corsair 5 Arai. I think it looks great. Expensive though.

$1100 in Australia.

I also purchased a Tricolore 12 on impulse. I was in Newport Beach , CA and the folks at the dealer were great and they had it in stock. I went in to get a CF trinket but my wife said "JUST GO FOR THE HELMET". God, I love that woman. Anyway the Corsair is an incredible helmet. Always been an Arai fan.

+1 on the Tricolore. Love it, and love the Corsair V. I also got lucky enough to buy it at my local shop on a sale day where any one item of gear was 20% off. In all honesty, I could have gone with a non "Ducati" Corsair V, but they are nearly all replica helmets, which I can't stand.

I for one dont like any of the ducati logo helmets. i dont like the ducati symbol all over me i feel like a moving bill board and ducati doesnt pay me. I have the bike thats all i need. i wear a suomy spec 1 r extreme, a bell rs1, and a bell star carbon. for what i paid for them you could get 1 ducati helmet (approximation). I had an arai and a shoei, and i must say the bell and the suomy in my opinion is just as good if not better. I know graphics are subjective but the graphics on the suomy is second to none and the bell star black beauty is beautiful. Here they are

Ducati branded helmets

For pure Ducati Helmets only ..

I have the Ducati AGV Dark Rider helmet along with the Ducati TWINNS Bluetooth Intercom headset. I really like the built in visor and design of this helmet.

I recently ordered the cash up front, no-return Arai Ducati Corse RXV Carbon Helmet. It has a 2 month lead time and due to DOT regulations in the USA I am not permitted to have the custom names, logo, etc put on the back. This will be my first Arai and based on what I heard it should be a very good helmet.
