So many bike manufacturers are doing this these days, partnering top helmet manufacturers to bring us helmets custom-painted to match our favourite models – but it’s still good to see and for new V-Strom XT owners this could be way too tempting…
So here it is, the Arai Tour-X4 in the same orange and white finish as Suzuki’s new range-topping V-Strom, complete with matching decals. It’s a top-line helmet the X-4, coming with a long list of features, including a double D-ring strap, front ventilation from dual intakes, brow vents, and three-position chin vent, and rear ventilation courtesy of a neck exhaust vent, side exhausts, and a removable diffuser.
The interior features a Dry-Cool® Liner with replaceable cheek pads, ear cups, and chinstrap covers. It also uses an emergency release system.
Versatility is key with the X-4 and it can be used in any combination of peak or no peak, and with either the visor or goggles, making it adept on or off-road.
So… the cost:RRP is £649. Availability is through all authorised Suzuki dealerships, or online via shopbikes.suzuki.co.uk/.
