HJC, the leading North American helmet brand, has introduced its top of the line RPHA 11 helmet India. The new helmet will be available at the Performance Racing Store, Mumbai. As of now, only the Lorenzo Indy replica is available, but more graphic ones will be available soon.
The HJC RPHA 11 is a thorough revision of the rather excellent RPHA 10. The helmet gets a newly designed shell and comes with a number of new features including a new forehead vent, an enlarged view port, a new face shield locking system, redesigned side air intakes and new rear exhaust vents.
The RPHA 11 has also been extensively tested in a wind tunnel for high speed aerodynamics and good wind flow to keep the rider cool.
Professional Spanish motorcycle road racer Jorge Lorenzo is no longer with HJC, having moved to Shark helmets earlier this year. However, HJC still has rights to make Lorenzo replicas till the end of the year.
Three other graphic schemes will go on sale by the end of March. Prices have been kept the same as before so the Lorenzo replica will set you back by Rs 40,000 while the standard graphic schemes will come in at Rs 30,000. PRS has just 30 of the funky Lorenzo replicas in stock so you’d best hurry if you want to get one.
