Head of the Class
Many motorcycle industry insiders have long regarded Arai as the best motorcycle helmet (period). I guess this comes from experience. For instance, twice bouncing my Arai covered head off the racetrack pavement in the last decade and still having the good judgment to write this story maybe proof enough.
Arai has introduced a new mid-season addition to its 2009 street-helmet line. Called the Aoyama Replica, it is the design used by 250cc GP front-runner Hiroshi Aoyama, and is available on Arai’s new cutting-edge Corsair-V model. It will now be arriving in Arai dealers nationwide.
The bright red/black/grey graphic is designed "to match nothing, but go with everything." The Corsair-V that will carry the new Aoyama replica is Arai’s newest top-of-the line helmet, introduced just this year.
