    HI, First post on the site. Bought the Sol SL68s II Metal Man from spartanprogear.com. Costed me Rs 5050 with shipping. Here are some pics. I also compared it with my Vega Trojan. Really nice feel with the helmet. Haven't gone for a ride yet but feels super silent and comfy.

    I was checking online and the only prices I saw were upwards of 40k. Like here it is for 37k abroad. With customs and all it should be 40k+. Airoh GP-500 Andrea Iannone Replica Helmet (yellow) | Replica Race Helmets

    No offence, but are these original? Even on the website there is no mention of Andrea Iannone or his race replica! Am I missing something???

    The helmet in question is a budget version of the GP500 version. The Pit One is a much cheaper model in the Airoh range. Interesting though is this helmet made in Indonesia, which retails for about RM250 ( about INR4300) in Malaysia.

    Partly true - but when the helmets are priced at less than 50% of the retail prices abroad, it raises a lot of interesting questions, doesn't it? Cheaper is welcome. Ridiculously cheaper always makes my alarm bells ring.

    Dear Sir,

    I found a contact e-mail address at their website (World Class Helmets Made in India) and dropped a query asking about some dealer in Delhi or any online purchase possible to avail the visor for my Vega Shadow and it was replied in time (pic enclosed), but it served no purpose. I have searched in a few shops and will try others as much as I can. I think buying a helmet from such manufacturers is of no use as they cannot help the customers with after-sales replacements .

    Warm Regards,
    Pranav

    Nothing such as ignorant, Monk. Fact is there is two helmets out there, one is the race spec GP500, which costs some EUR 600 and costs 40 to 45k here in India. The PIT ONE XR is A little cheaper one, with just the livery of ANDREA IANNONE.

    These helmets, at least the one I wear are genuine Made in Italy stuff. Of course as demand perks up, you might some some fakes flooding in. But in India, Bachoo Motors are the only guy directly importing these stuffs and one more dealer, forgot his name.

    There is this exchange denomination you have to take into account. $60 LS2 costs 3k and EUR 87 costs close to 7k. It's these exchange rate where we get screwed up. It's best to be abroad either to buy a high-end motorcycle or motorcycle accessories or riding gear.

    Mate, chuck your Vega. There are lots of good helmets out there, in the 3k range, with approved protection. Save some money and get the best out there. If you need any help don't hesitate to ask.

    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    Talk about close copies! . \Here's the original!

    Interesting, so this is made for Airoh in Indonesia. Does that mean that their will be a compromise in quality?

    I think you're slight off track, buddy. AIROH, doesn't manufacture any helmets in Indonesia, and Sunny pointed out some fakes revolving around in AIROH. If someone can get a 12000 buck helmet at 4.3k definitely you've gotta reason there's something to look closely.

    If my memory serves me right, AIROH as of now only manufacture their entire range in ITALY.
