    Yes the mail defently tells you that.

      But wd recommend you to try the helmets first before ordering.. not wearing the correct size is like not wearing a helmet at all...

      the helmets i saw in vegahelmet.com are not even there in vegaauto.com.... no helmets in their catalogue

      • There are many brands sold in India and we don't even know if they are fake just as Daijya (as written in the email)
        the brands sold here are- index , cross a.k.a fasttrack , stm (the ones on the site are not the ones sold here ) , bhp (what DSG used to sell earlier) . All these bear a mark of DOT approval and not ISI as per indian rules.Even the DOT approval sticker could be a fake

        I guess all the manufacturers are in the same boat.

                Hello Sir,

                I am from India.... and want to buy a good helmet..... and I see Daijya as a brand of good repute here. I have heard that its a subsidiary ofMarushin Helmets, Japan.

                Please let me know if the helmets are made in Japan and what are the safety levels that they match up to.

                I didn't want it to make a big issue on a public forum, hence did not post this mail earlier.... just that

                Btw.. I paid 4.5k for my helmet.

                    • I seriously really dont think Daijya is fake.. may be its not made in Japan and made in UK.. but that doesnt make the helmet of cheap quality...

                          • All this should b clarified soon, meanwhile the Daijya helmets dont come across as cheap to me. The quality seems good enough, specially after using then in Australia. The visors were also pretty shatter resistant, I have abused the helmets a lot. I am no authority in helmets and am not saying they are the best or vouching for them just because they advertise on the website. Lets see where this leads to.

                            Meanwhile the two emails made me raise an eyebrow.
