I will be keeping mine for a while too...

Don't know if you can tell in that picture, but there is a little metal tag in front of each helmet holder that says "His" and "Hers"



Thanks from GK1199R and MrBIgBiker

I plan on wearing this for ducati day at chuckwalla valley raceway!!
Wow this is really awesome

AGV Pista GP R

Just to confirm peeps the race 2 visor fits the new GPR. There is a difference in the latching mechanisms but it seems to seal just fine. Grabbed a race 2 visor for $65 on eBay vs the race 3(clear)which isn't even out yet and will be north of $100 easily when it's released.

Thanks for the info!

For anyone interested in an AGV i came upon another site that has them for even cheaper. AGV Pista GP R Glossy Carbon Helmet - Champion Helmets | Motorcycle Helmets, Clothing & Gear

The GP R is only $700 us shipped and the race 3 iridiums are $65.00. They tricked me real nice though. I placed an order on monday for the helmet which they said was in stock and when i asked about shipping times they replied back to say it wasnt actually in stock and were awaiting their shipment. The prices are kind of too good to be true so heres hoping it comes lol Paid with my CC so im not too worried.

wow, that's a REALLY good price.

might be a dumb question, but can the shields from the Pista/Corsa not be used on the new R versions? I realize that the new ones are thicker than the old ones, but aside from that, would the old one not fit into the new one's latching system?

Like i said its almost too good to be true. I bought the old pista GP 2 months ago for just over $1000 Canadian and i thought that was a steal already. I just ordered the GP R with some extra visors and it came to $1100 shipped. I'll definitely keep you guys up to date on this order but ive read a lot of good reviews on championhelmets so this could be a good thing for any riders looking for an agv

Yes the old pista visors will work on the new R's. GK1199R confirmed it 2 posts up lol

The old version is race 2 and i according to the champion site the GP R version is the race 3.

Do not buy from champion helmets!! They claim they have it in stock but do not. I purchased from them and waited over two weeks for a response and never got so much as an anticipated ship date. I had to dispute the charge to force a refund. If you don't want the helmet for a while then yes they do have the best price. Otherwise Buy from motostorm.it. I still paid right around $1000 for the lid. Be aware that they will not have the necessary DOT stickers for use on US highways. This is a track only helmet for me so I didn't care. They also helped me complete the necessary customs forms upon request. Great customer service!!

Championhelmets is great! Bought my rpha10 JL carbon, pista gp soleluna and corsa handprint from them without any problems at all. All 3 helmets were delivered in less than 2 weeks. Carbon JL was 325 (not available in the u.s.) handprint was a steal at 550 and pista soleluna was 900. No customs issue either.

Im definitely not cool with how they tricked me but i cant complain because their prices are so insanely low. My season doesnt start for another 2 months so im not too worried and ive got the other helmets to use just in case. I also dont have 1199R money so for me the $300 makes a difference lol

Thanks for the reassurance doubleo! im confident ill get the helmet eventually. Ive been in contact with some other dealers and the consensus is they should be arriving within the next couple weeks. I was beyond skeptical that they were the only guys with the AGVs in stock so i checked some other lids and there were a couple where it did state not in stock. Kinda had my hopes up until i emailed them to see when they would ship it out.
