Now you can own the replica lid of the youngest MotoGP rookie-champion since Kenny Roberts with the Shoei RF-1200 Marquez Black Ant helmet available from Riders Discount!



Like previous updates to the RF line, the RF-1200 is a big step up from the outgoing model. One of the more noticeable changes at a glance is the reduction in shell size. The new shell is more aerodynamic and sleek looking than the predecessor thanks to extensive wind tunnel testing. The more compact shell also serves as an indication of the lower weight that the helmet carries. Shoei claims that the RF-1200 is the lightest SNELL approved helmet that they have produced, which feels like an accurate statement once you put the helmet on.



Shoei developed the brand new CWR-1 shield for the RF-1200, and it comes with a number of new features. The first isn’t a feature of the shield itself, but the base plates that hold it in place. The new QR-E base plates secure the shield using pivoting quick-release mechanisms that make shield changes even faster than before. While this might not sound like much, improving on the already great base plates from before is worth noting. The shield itself features reinforcements that run along the top and bottom in order to add rigidity. Ever felt a cheap shield flex when opening or closing it? That is not an issue with the RF-1200. This structural strength also helps keep a better seal around the eyeport. Every RF-1200 comes with a Pinlock insert for the absolute best in fog prevention.





Retails at $626.99. If you’re interested, just give Brad a call at 866.931.6644 ext. 810, or contact him through this forum for more info. Is email more convenient? Feel free to send those to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM and we’ll get back to you right away!

PM me also for price shipped to 92392.

btw, how come shoei doesn't release this and his other graphics in the x12 model? His "film strip" lid after he won the first championship looks so good.

^^^^This. I'd buy that thing in a second. They're currently being wishy-washy on whether they'll release the "Speedway Special" helmet that he wore at Indy last year. Do wants.

Unfortunately, Shoei doesn't make a habit of bringing too many replicas to market, not when compared to Arai or AGV. It's a shame.
