2016 Arai Ducati Red Arrow - too much Ducati?

Im considering purchasing a 2016 Arai RX-7V Ducati Red Arrow helmet


The question is, is it too much Ducati if you know what I mean? Its either that, or a new Doohan rep.

Looks pretty subtle to me. I have a Corse 12 that has DUCATI written in three places which I find a little excessive.

I say go for it.

No way- that looks killer- no idea what that price equals but I do know they don't come cheap!

It doesn't appear to be too overpowering, looks super cool!

If you have the money, no way. Not too much Ducati. Get it! I owned two Arai in the past. They are great. One actually saved my head from a good slap to the pavement. Hardest I ever hit my head on the ground. I remember the impact was in the back and I felt it displace all around my head. Basically re distributed the impact else where.

Looks cool, thanks for posting the pic. Will have to make a decision soon as my current RX7 is definitely getting a bit past it now
