The new Goldwing has landed in Ireland with lucky owners starting to take delivery last month. Arai are celebrating the new bikes arrival on the market with a limited edition Arai QV-Pro in very special Honda Gold Wing colours. The new ‘lid’ is nothing less than an ultimate sports-touring helmet as well as the ultimate Gold Wing accessory for fans of the bike.
The Arai QV-Pro features the same advanced VAS technology as seen in the new RX-7V and it even shares the same outer shell, but with different ventilation that is designed to work with a touring rather than sports machine. This rounder, smoother and stronger shell with an intermediate oval fit offers the all important ‘’glancing off’’ properties that the Japanese firm has developed for superior helmet performance in real world impacts.
The new helmet features, as the second model in the Arai range, the Variable Axis System (VAS) visor pivot system. This offers a larger, smoother and stronger outer shell area while still offering maximum visibility. From the very start of its development, the Arai QV-Pro has been designed as the ultimate all-round helmet with all the advanced technology of the RX-7V, while also meeting the demands of the growing market segment that is riders who use sports-tourers.
The new Arai helmet comes standard with the Pro Shade System visor. This operates as a pull down dark visor that can be operated with the riders left hand and offers eye protection from the summer sun. Meanwhile the main visor comes with an anti fog liner which makes the helmet, like the bike an all-weather capable affair.
The helmet can be found in Megabikes on Dublin's Wexford Street, where it comes with a professional fitting service and a life span of five years. Call them on 01 478 4200 to organise a fitting for the ultimate touring helmet for the ultimate touring motorcycle…
