Arai Helmets has announced a new Kevin Schwantz "Restyle" Replica retro-graphic helmet as a mid-season addition to its 2009 Helmet Line. Not surprisingly, the most immediate reaction came from the former World 500GP champion’s school. The Schwantz School, which now operates out of Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL, said the new Arai will now be the official student helmet at the school.
Available on Arai’s popular Vector model, the new Schwantz replica is scheduled to reach North American retail dealers in the July-August timeframe.
