    Secondly, I do not agree with the reasoning given. If the helmets sold in India carry DOT sticker, they have to be same exact spec as sold in western markets. If I am not wrong, LS2 helmets sold here also carry sharp rating. Sharp rating is given by a Government agency in UK. Hence, the reason given as higher safety standard does not hold much water.
    as mentioned by you earlier also, the particular model in question is FF396 CT2, this model is available in India as ECE/DOT certification, meaning it may have either ECE or DOT certification as mentioned on Buy Bike Accessories LS2 Helmets Sole Authorised India Online Partner - Acebiker Moto-deals or official LS2 india website - > LS2 Helmets, now if you look closely on the pics available at LS2 FF396 Carbon, you can see that it is an ECE certified helmet and not a DOT certified helmet.

    now let us check what certification it carries in western countries, clearly FC-moto website does not mention any certification. so let us check the catalogue of LS2 --> ISSUU - LS2 Helmets Catalogue 2014 by Enric Godes , you can see that it is SHARP-4 star rated.

    that means there is a difference in safety certification.

    Some serious work done by you @princesirohi, it clears that LS2 has only two store in India and we can find many dealers in Delhi those who are selling LS2, but my one neither looks original nor the china as said by AG, so are they made in India and just has a sticker of LS2, I really feel like is it not safe or may be equal safe as other cheap helmets available in India, I don't care about the brand but it should be safe, at least 3-4 times more than our local helmets....

    Same here. Those standards should be equal globally. Else what's the use of creating a standard. It looks like 1kg of onions in western countries is like 500 gms of onions in India (not price wise specifically).

    Secondly, anyone can make a sticker and use it on their respective helmets. Dont you think getting it embossed is much more easier way to stop fake market of the helmets.
    I guess these are the same standards with different names. Just like Euro 4 and BS 4 for emission norms.

    @ArnabC : Na na, what I meant was, its no where mentioned in which category the ISI onea are ?
    Btw the difference between ECE/DOT and ISI is "no result" discussion so I will avoid that.

    Sorry I got your question wrong. Though a bit off-topic but I read in an article, Times of India as far as I remember, that Mumbai police were catching people who were wearing helmets certified by ECE/DOT. That happened a year or two back. People owning good bikes (read Fireblade/Harleys/R1 etc) were being caught and fined as the Indian law states that we, Indian riders, should use ISI certfied helmets. Anything else than that, though not mentioned by Indian law, were being stopped by police. That's when the article reoprted about those riders, who claim that these ECE/DOT certified helmets are actually better than the ISI certified ones. So maybe ECE/DOT certified helmets, of same price range, are better than ISI certified helmets.

    trustvishwas sir: Could you please throw some light on this?

    Ok, the thread is progressing faster than anticipated, by the time i posted reply to vishwas...there were other queries as well

    ISI stickered LS2 are fake...as simple as that...dont buy them.
    Regarding embossing, i have given the suggestion to him, but he said it increases cost, hence sticked as i have already mentioned. Still he said that he will discuss with manufacturer and try.

    Sure..will check in this g2g.

    It is not about what rating it carries in india, the problem arises when the same model helmet is available with same rating in some other country for a much different price.

    Yes safety is the prime concern behind all this exercise.

    Standards are same everywhere...only thing is which standard certified helmet is sold in which country.

    There is no ISI certified LS2 helmet, bro.

    And yes ECE, DOT, SNELL, SHARP and ISI are different ..everyone acknowledge that.

    I know they are fake and market is also flooded with cheap LS2 (might be the Chineese one) with ECE stickers.

    Like this ECE sticker, we could find ISI stickered helmets too
