New bike, means new helmet - what to look at

So every time I buy a new bike I buy a new helmet. It's like buying new shoes, you need new socks 😉

So I pick up my dragster RR (black/red) tomorrow and want to go helmet shopping on Saturday. What's everyone rocking at the moment to suit the insanely good looking rides?

Historically I've been in a shoei guy but this is my first street bike and not sports bike so open to a little bit of change.

Was thinking of looking at bell due to their cool retro feel and still and shoei

What's everyone else's suggestions, graphics etc


Previous Rides:
Honda CBR250RR 88' / Yamaha YZF R6 03' / Yamaha YZF R1 04' / Yamaha YZF R1 05' / Yamaha YZF R6 05' (track beast) / Kawasaki Ninja 250R 09' (track beast)/ MV Brutale Dragster RR 15

At the moment my main helmet is the HJC Rapha10+ full carbon.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I recently picked up the Arai RX-Q DNA. The fit and finish on this are really just awesome. I Also fitted it with a Sena SMH 10R and loving everything over the last 800 miles. The visor's are very easy to change out, it takes me about 10 seconds.

I used to swear by Shoei for years until I tried an Arai RX7GP. The best helmet I've ever worn. Plus the fact that even the top sponsored riders get their helmets off the normal production line (before custom painting of course!).
I've got to say that I Do like the new Bell Carbon, although I've not tried it on my head.
