Bell Rogue helmet

Was looking for a picture on the bell site and came across this. The Bell Rogue Solid Gunny Similar to my other thread I can't tell if I love it or hate it. What do you guys think??

BUILT BELL TOUGH. INNOVATIVE MUZZLE.
Purpose built to guard against the elements, the new Rogue has the look of a half helmet with the comfort of a 3/4. Featuring an adjustable and removable muzzle, the Rogue offers an innovative solution for exceptional rider comfort. Add in a lightweight composite shell and ultra-comfortable interior, and you've got the perfect weapon for a day on the road.

Unless there's a hidden metal chin bar to reinforce that grill, I wouldn't buy it.

This. I'm a full-face kinda guy.
I have a [matte black] Bell RS-1 and love it.

I've been thinking about getting a Shark Speed-R just to change things up.

Shark makes top tier helmets. Their crash ratings (G-transfer) is up to par with $600 lids

The muzzle looks a lot bigger when the guy is wearing it. I definitely think it has a lot of cool factor. But taking the hit to the chin wouldn't be worth it.

Not for me. It does look GI Joe to me.

That said, I have a Bell Arrow Helmet and that thing rocks. Moves a lot of air for TX heat, comfy, and 5 yr. warranty. The fact that I could buy 2 for $50 each was icing on the cake.

I've had a Shark Helmet before and it was nice too.

Where can you get 2 for $50?

Motorcycle Superstore online had last year's models for $50/each Reg. $100
After I got the first one, I liked it so much and ordered a 2nd. Reasonable weight too. It has turned into my favorite helmet even over my prior Shark.

A bit noisy but I wear plugs anyway. WebBikeWorld gave a decent review of them too.

$250 for a half-helmet that comes with what is effectively a face-mask? I think I would pass on that. Not to mention the weird tan lines/sunburns/bug splatter pattern that thing would leave between your glasses and the mask.

I'm here for a good time, not a long time
