First thoughts – Arai RX-7V


We’ve just taken delivery of a new Arai RX-7V and first impressions are overwhelmingly positive.

We’re huge fans of its predecessor, so that shouldn’t come as a surprise – the RX-7GP has looked after me in a quick 120mph lowside, and a 40mph highside, and each time I’ve walked away without so much as a headache.

I took the lid out for an exploratory ride yesterday and the new model is a big improvement – it’s snugger, which is good, the field of vision feels wider, it feels lighter, the new lining seems comfy and the new visor mechanism is easy to operate but reassuringly secure once in place.

We’ll be putting it through its paces over the next few weeks and will report back once we’ve got a few thousand miles under our belts…watch this space
