This helmet will be only produced on order from Italian Arai dealers and will be available from February 2014 and costs € 1.049, the helmet will come with a ’six pack’ that includes the helmet, and Arai bag, smoke visor, Arai cap, helmet cleaner and 10% discount on a new purchase.
The Arai RX-7 GP has a double omologation: ECE 22-05 and Snell M2010 and the rest of the features are the same for Arai’s top of the line racing helmet.
