They are made by Nexx and it is really the same helmet except the XD1 does come with the sun shade. However, the TT version is carbon fiber which accounts for the cost difference.

So who gets to decide how much HP is "needed" on the street? A European bureaucrat? Pretty good track record those guys have.

And exactly how much HP does this guy think is OK? Is it 130? 135?...

Awesome. Dare I ask if the main shield is "recessed" for the pinlock?

Whether it is or not, I'm jealous. Can't wait til these are available in the states.
