The link above is a good article about Arai helmets. How they are made and what goes into their high cost. I picked my second XD-4 up at BAMF Moto in Portland. James was able grab one right out of the container from Japan, apparently this color scheme sell out fast. So thanks James🙌
My first Arai XD-4 lasted 5 years and a bit over 50,000 miles. They are the most comfortable helmets I’ve found that fits my large melon head 😏🙄
I spoke with an Arai sales rep at the Dallas IMS show and a new design should be out this year, but I have many thousands of miles to go on this one. Looking forward to seeing what’s new.
