Seriously, though - the helmets aren't worth $199. Period.

Anyone who has owned a quality helmet will notice the shortcomings, cheap parts, etc. IMHO, for those it fits it's worth $130 or $140.

My thinking is that it's just a marketing ploy, again, where they have to show them as more expensive to make people more apt to buy when they're $99. What better time to do that than after the riding season for most of the country has shut down for the winter?

typical house brand stuff.
KTM EXC - in 530 flavor
'10 Concours14 with >85,000 miles and ticking'
'99 ZX9R Ninja - rolling retro style
'99 ZX9R - because I like the other one so much
'08 ZZR600 minty
