    I need to buy a Good Quality Helmet soon (Good Quality, Respectable Brand, Full Face, Ventilated, Budget is around Rs 6000/-)

    Thanks!
    With a healthy 6K budget, why in the world would you go for a lousy O neal lid?
    Lookup some international portals, Dennis Kirk | Frontpage & New Enough Motorcycle Apparel sells motorcycle jackets, pants and suits, boots, gloves, helmets, etc :: New Enough, LTD ship worldwide, and they have some excellent helmets at really, really low prices.
    For all you know, you'd have yourself a Scorpion shipped tou you in India for as low as 6K sometimes.
    I bought my first HJC helmet from newneough.com for some 50 odd usd shipped to friend in the US.

    Denniskirk had some awesome pricing on the AGV V-flyer series tgill a day or two ago, try looking that up. At 130 odd USD plus shipping, that would be a ton better than the O neal stuff you'd see on Walmart!!

    Could you elaborate on your experience with the O'Neal Helmets? It came recommended by someone who's an experienced rider and used it for 6 months as their secondary helmet/pillon passenger helmet and were quite happy with the quality. It costs around $89 on Sale (List $200). I'm still looking but, I could'nt find any Full Face helmets my size in that price range, on the websites you mention.

    Anyway, fitting a Helmet is crucial and I wouldnt buy one without first trying it which isnt possible to do online. Will keep these Brands in mind when I go shopping. Could anyone recommend quality helmet stores in India, pref. Mumbai.

    Thumbs up

    @ CYBERPUNK, why don't you try AGV HELMETS, they're good. I'm not talking of the Indian made ones which retail for about 1500 to 2000. I'm talking of the original ones, available for about 6500 to 7000. Any good store in Mumbai will have them.

    CHEERS,

    Off late domestic helmet stores have been stocking entry level AGV helmets, a member on teambhp bought a GPOne for 6K odd, and i'm told they have full support for cheek pads, visors, etc

    For the O'Neal, just surf some international biker forums, and you'll know exactly how 'not so great' they are. From what i have read, at best i'd have one for a last minute resort for my pillion.

    Here you go for the helmets at denniskirk starting as low as 40$ for an HJC!!

    would anyone know where in delhi (or NCR)can we get a good variety of helmets to choose from.. im looking for only imported brands like arai, agv,soumy or shoie etc.
    the dealers i speak to always say if u give advance we can get it for u..but how can i book it without even having a look at the real thing
    Just because you haven't seen it doesnt mean its impossible...expect the unexpected.

    I'll have to second Manson on that. So far I have not come across ANY biker wearing an O'Neal helmet. I don't even recall seeing it at any of the motorcycle dealerships. HJC, Bell, AGV and Scorpion Exo(a bit of a stretch) are more popular in that price range.
    Maybe it's just me but to me the Helmet is more important than the bike.
