Adventure riders around the world are going to flip over the new helmet introduced by Touratech at AIMExpo 2015. The AVENTURO Mod takes the old preconceptions of a modular helmet and confounds them, setting a new standard in versatility, comfort, and off-road capabilities.Riders no longer have to choose between a touring helmet and a dual-sport lid because Touratech has introduced the perfect blend of each. A joint effort between Touratech and legendary helmet manufacturer Schuberth, has created the AVENTURO Mod which combines the comfort and convenience of a flip-up chin bar with an adjustable peak and increased ventilation for off-road adventures. The peak rotates back when the chin bar is up and then magically rebounds to the riders chosen position when the chin bar is closed. It’s German engineering at its finest.
Riders will see the road with clarity through ‘Class 1’ optics provided with the anti-fog shield which can be propped open at 1”, 2.5” and 4” settings to boost airflow in stop & go traffic or challenging terrain. Adventurers will enjoy riding off into the sunset even more with the integrated sun visor that flips down with the flick of a finger.“This will be the most versatile touring helmet on the market,” says Tilo Jentzsch, Head of Product Management, Touratech AG.With the launch of the amazing Aventuro Carbon in early 2015, Touratech raised the bar for adventure motorcycle helmets. The AVENTURO Mod builds on that success with an eye toward increased touring comfort and flip-up convenience, while retaining off-road features and aggressive Touratech-styling.The Mod has a goggle-strap holder for those awesome days in the dirt and is set up for an integrated communication system. This helmet is ultra-quiet, very comfortable, and available in 7 vibrant color schemes. It ‘s ready to ride every road, mountain, desert, and valley on the planet.The Touratech AVENTURO Mod (retail price: $829-$889) is the ultimate adventure helmet and available for pre-order now, with delivery in spring 2016. To pre-order, visit Touratech.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
