We ordered the red one (also available in gold) for our 2009 Ducati Monster 1100 S project bike.

When light conditions change, a quick pull or push deploys or retracts the internal tinted shield, allowing you to remain focused on the road. Like most MotorClothes helmets, this one features a removable, washable inner liner, double D-ring chin strap and comes with a protective bag.
