This is the 4th generation Kagayama graphic for the X-12 SHOEI helmet. Kagayama began motorcycle racing in 1990 and has been going strong ever since. This graphic has long been a favorite of mine in the SHOEI X series of helmets. It has a bold design and is sure to be noticed when you are on the track or just riding around town.
Whether you are into Racing or a casual blast around you city or town, the X-12 is the helmet for you. The X-12 was born from racing for racing. The X-12 demonstrates SHOEI has listened, not only to racers, but everyday riders as well. Form the venting system, the Q.R.S.A. (quick release self-adjusting) base plate system that allows you to change your shield on the fly, dual-layer EPS liner, emergency quick release system all the way down to the chin curtain.
So to sum it all up, if you are looking for the best of the best when it comes to a motorcycle helmet for racing or for just casual riding, look no further, the SHOEI X-12 has everything you need plus some!
