    Not less than a five figure i guess
    Co-incidentally I wrote to Performance Racing Store enquiring about the price of SparX S-07 model. They replied that it would cost Rs.6000&500 extra for door delivery. Sounds fine, as the international price for solid color is 110$.

      Oh so now they are selling Sparx helmets for 6k.... they are really worth. I feel they are on par or better than the Daijyas....
      This is on my list for next helmet change .

      @Sarvajit: Are the costs inclusive of taxes??

          6k all inclusive sounds like a bit too tempting.. donno why they came down from 8.5k to 6k.... I'll have to start saving for this one !!....

          I got my Daijya scratched during my last crash... and intend to go for a new one!!

          Btw.... I did not find a big difference between the two... I dont know abt the shell of Sparx (I know the shell of Daijya is pretty good--experienced its safety ).... but the padding inside is very similar... I feel the Daijya has a upper hand in terms of quality.

          • @chetan: What i would suggest is the SPARX here... even am going for the same.. My current Vega is 2 crashes old, so it's time to change.


            @sarvajit: alright, so u checked out the helmet.. what i would suggest is go for the Graphix one in these.. the glossy is good.. but it's prone to scratches.. though not much, but still.

            You only live once so take hold of the chance
            Don't end up like others the same song and dance

              • I personally find it far better than Daijya (mine is better than yours )
                But new visor will cost you not less than Rs 1000.

                  .... so how much did you get it for?? And what visor does it come with.... what other visors are available?? And is the padding ka sponge hard or soft??

                  • Chetan,
                    I shelled out Rs 6800, as i bought it from Pune, from Bhuvan, to be precise. It came with a clear visor. Recently visited PRS and bought a dark visor for 1K (remember, my sms that day for the excat location of the store).
                    I have not used Daijya, but the padding is very soft.

                      So its 6k + 1k for visor..... I also felt the padding soft... and hence left the idea... coz soft padding means getting softer over time... and hence the padding wont hold the face as they do when new... this is what is different in Daijya... the padding is still as it was when new .

                      Will again checkout Sparx soon.

                            The graphic one (around 3.5K) is priced at around 1K higher than the solid one (2.5K odd) here at Hyderabad.
                            So I decided to go for the solid color&get some custom stickering done for a nominal price.
                            As for the matt, initially it appealed coz it was somewhat immune to light scratches, but later I developed a dislike towards it after I saw my Boolean side panels peeling off inspite of the most careful use possible!
