Assuming they're legit.

Yep, at over double what they cost in Japan + shipping!!

That's a lot to pay for some HRC decals on a helmet. I prefer Shoei anyways and recently bought 2 new helmets (a Bell with carbon exposed, which matches my SP is one of them) so I won't be spending over $1000 on the HRC helmet!

Ah... maybe they decided to make more, as they're available again here in JP too, apparently. Still a bit costly. I think you Shoei GT Air with artwork was about $100 less.
?Arai ??? RX-7X HRC ????? Honda ? M??? - ????!

Meh, I'll see how I feel after completing the Repsol MC28 GP replica, if I get it finished this winter season. I haven't even started yet, but that's because the new garage built isn't yet finished and it's bloody cold outside!

Garage
Not exclusively for the RC51.....













But knowing I was going for a SP2 (following the totaling of my RC36) I did go for this one vs the 2016 IOMTT one.
Bought mine from thevisorshop.com as the price difference with Dutch retailers was simply crazy (~$250).
I offered the local shops to meet them half way, but they refused. "we will sell them full price anyway". Fair enuf.



If you look closely, you can still see the brace on my wrist.. I did not escape fully unscaved, but will regain 99%.



Yes, they are more $ than a "regular" RX-7V (Murricans call it the Corsair methink), but money is only good when you spend it......

Old enough to know better, young enough not to care.
