Fit is so subjective, it's very challenging question to answer. What seems similar to me might be completely different to you. I've never worn an RXQ, but I can tell you I was at a consumer show in Cleveland over the weekend and was able to try the Arai XD4 back-to-back with the MX453. In my opinion, the XD4 was a bit more comfortable, but I was happy to see how close we came. Front to back distance was about the same. Overall comfort was very close, but I would give Arai the nod. The MX453 is what we consider a long oval shape, but I thought it was very similar to the XD4.
I've worked at 4 of the International Motorcycle Shows and the consumer response to the fit of the MX453 has been overwhelmingly positive. The thing fits GREAT.
Hope that helps some. I'd appreciate hearing your feedback if you get the chance to try both.
Thanks so much for the response. Wish now that I had looked at this helmet while attending the International Motorcycle Show. I will try to find a place to try own the helmets and post my feedback.
