    Should do wonders to improve visibility but I wonder how much chin protection it offers

    Of course, it can't be judged in picture but the build quality does inspire confidence.

    Whats the point in having such a large windscreen when the chin protection is any ways going to block the view

    What's the sharp safety rating for this? Does it qualify also?

    The chin's not thin as seen in the closed visor pics.

    When the visor is raised, we can see a decent chin and viewing area only marginally better than other full face helmets, like the SBA1 series.

    So, the actual highlight of the helmet is it being a "Pocket Friendly Shiny Shiny Beauty". Offers marginally better visibility. The best looking full face "Indian" helmets available.

    The helmet indeed looks good. I tried on a shop. The helmet fits fine, but the amount of padding is not very plush. I doubt it will stop much wind noise.
    Don't know how good it is at reducing impacts since there is not that much cushioning.
