Awesome Hornet Helmet

I thought one of you old guys with lots of money might be all over this thing.

I'd be curious as to the visibility through the shield. Some better pics would be great.

It does look pretty cool though!

I agree with AJ that it is a paint job that that deserves a better helmet. However some I know some people like the Scorpions.

not trying to knock the helmet, just that if your going to spend that much in paint work why put it on a low end helmet? Like i said i have one but it doesn't compare to my shoei !!!

The only problem is that the bright screaming yellow "look at me" hornet helmet isn't exactly the style favored by us old guys with lots of money.

still waiting to see the big smiley-face helmet



the graphics seem nice on that hornet lid, but as has been said, not my 1st choice of lids

had a guy come in the other day with a painted helmet ... i asked about the visibility... aparantly they use a mesh with a adhesive back and paint it then stick it on the visor..

he said during the day it wasnt bad "took some getting used to" he said... and he said at night it was like a dark smoke shield is at night...

i don't know....

but i agree with the whole "great paint job on a mediocre helmet" consensus..

You can buy those visor screens at many different places. I would not like one on my visor, but that's just me. Here is a link to some of the screens out on the market. I am sure there's many more.

Here is another hornet helmet (bottom right). It would be better if they color matched them with the bikes. http://www.sparxhelmets.com/splash.php?id=st
