I'm currently waiting for Shoei to release their new helmet, which is scheduled in march here in Europe, and I noticed that it is already for sale in the US market. I wonder why? Is the euro model diferent than the US one?

That’s a bummer! My buddy picked one up two days ago and I checked one out last night.

Where did you hear about March? I asked my dealer and they told me late January.

I'm going to ask again on monday.

Edit: I just checked dirtbikebitz and they are out of stock/pre order. I wonder if my dealer got something wrong when i asked them. Anyways, i'll return to this thread on Monday when i get a new answer.

Yeah i saw that too. Bummer.

But there is probably a reason for it. The helmet is called VFX-WR in Europe and VFX-EVO in North America, i wonder if there is actually some small differences?

One will be SNELL, one will be ECE.

Yeah that was what i was thinking.

I don't think any helmets here have the SNELL rating.

I'm hoping that will mean a few grams less.
