Icon Airframe Carbon RR Motorcycle Helmet DetailsIcon has added another helmet to its lineup of carbon-fiber lids – the Airframe Carbon RR. The Airframe Carbon RR features the latest in technological advancements, including ICON’s patented molding process, and new design elements.
The shell is formed with ICON’s unique dry molding technology, which allows for exact placement of carbon material. This controlled placement provides reinforced structure without adding weight. Weighing in at a mere 1450 grams (3.19 lbs.), the Airframe Carbon RR is one of ICON’s lightest helmets.Athletic, bold, yet understated, the Airframe Carbon RR graphics are a further evolution of ICON’s design language. Strong geometric shapes with ghosted design elements overlay the carbon fiber shell of the helmet.The helmet design is then accented with the “RR” logo, and further highlighted by precision pin striping. This design both highlights the carbon fiber construction of the helmet, while adding vibrancy and movement even while sitting still.With a new look and a proven design, the ICON Airframe Carbon RR is a revitalized take on helmet design and engineering.Icon Airframe Carbon RR Helmet Highlights:

Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory + Steve ’Stavros’ Parrish
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly podcast—Motos and Friends. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Our first segment features the new Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory. Senior Editor Nic de Sena brings us his report on the flagship version of Aprilia’s upright middleweight machine. He gives us insight into whether it’s worth spending the extra money on the Factory version, and also of course, whether this sporting Aprilia is really the motorcycle for you.
The next guest segment of Motos and Friends is brought to you by the faster and most technologically advanced, 2023 Suzuki Hayabusa—one of the most iconic sportbikes ever. Check it out in person at your local Suzuki dealer now, or visit suzukicycles.com to learn more.
In this segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with (arguably) one of the most interesting Suzuki race riders of all time. the iconic RG500 alongside teammate double World Champion Barry Sheene. The two were almost as famous for their exploits off-track, as for their success on it. Those were the days! Steve also raced the Isle of Man TT for about ten years where he won 13 Silver Replicas, and got a podium finish. His insight into that particular brand of mayhem are fascinating.
But there’s waaay more to Steve Parrish than his motorcycle racing. He is also the most successful Semi-Truck racer ever, and, little known piece of useless trivia—he’s my birthday twin: 24th February. He is a natural entertainer and you can’t miss his recounting of the world’s most entertaining—and arguably terrifying—double-decker bus ride ever. If any of you were actually on that hell-ride then we’d love to hear from you!
