Shoei X12?

OK, this helmet matches my 919 almost perfectly (I checked it in the sun at the dealership) but don't tell any other red 919 owners. Is anyone wearing an X12 for an upright bike? How does it work out? I have an RF1000 and a Quest and I love them both.

Cheers,
RC

I have the Tomizawa replica. It has better aero than the X11, but is a bit heavier (my X11 is from Japan, however). Fit is a little on the long side.

Looks sick. I just wish shoei or arai made non modular helmets with a built in sun visor. I'll never go without one now!

I have the same wish. I am sure that I will have a Neotec soon also.

Any issues with riding a naked bike with it?
