Arai RX7 GP

People,

I know I will get them from the usual suspects but please not too many 'lets take ths piss out of Submariner comments" here please!!!! (as I am feeling sensitive)

I am going for a new Arai RX7 GP lid and want it to match my bike as closely as possible. Piccies of my plain 2000 F4 in silver and red are in my photo album.

Here is a link to the RX7 GP lids.

Thoughts would be appreciated please guys, I don't want anything trashy and would prefer it simplish. I also dont want to have the expense of getting the lid sprayed.

By the way the plain red lid is almost scarlet and does not really match the MV red.

Cheers

Go for the GP helmet in pure red.

Ideally paired with a red jacket, black gloves, silver legs and silver boots... I'll be like F4 camo, we'll assume the bike's riding itself

Seriously though, the GP's a great lid and because the design's quite stylised they look nice in flat colours without all the busy graphics, as the MV does!

If that is any help to you...plain red RX-7 GP. I am using it for the 2nd season now. I can feel the breeze coming in somewhere at the visor, but only on Brutale. On F4, it is perfect since the angle of the head is different on these two bikes. I like that visor opening is really big and you don't need to lift your head painfully to see anything on the F4, which has, as you know, very low clip-ons.
The color doesn't match perfect, but hey, for the price I got it, it could be pink(actually not, but you know what I am trying to say).

If you would consider custom airbrush in the colours that will match (look in my albums for ideas), just buy a plain white or black helmet.

thanks guys, the RX7 GP in red is not really MV red which is why I was going away from it. My local dealer have offered to lend me 4 x RX7 in differing colours so im gonna take them home and compare
