Pricy like the Arai, but lighter and more comfortable in a sport position. i tend to prefer the Suomy over my Arai on the 12000r sport as well. Both helmets are noisy, but I qlways wear ear plugs.
Thas right...... Suomy Spec 1R Extreme is the macdaddy, da bomb, the shizzy, off da hook, bang'en.................. anyway, I really like mine. I've had the Arai RX-7, Shoei X-11, Shuberth S-1, and I like the Suomy better than any of them. It's a little noisy but you should wear ear plugs anyway. The most comfortable for my melon by far. Great graphics for a stock helmet, IMHO.
