I looked at the Scorpion helmet today, am getting rid of my RF700 Shoei as it is starting to show it's age, the Scorpion looked and fit well[ the Z logo can be removed by pulling on it] but the color I wanted wasn't there.
I went to several bike shops looking around and I saw a lot of nice looking helmets in the $150--$300 range, I went back and got a Shoei RF1000, solid color, anthracite. The helmet has alot more wind noise then my old RF700, I think I can play with the foam padding a bit and remove some of the wind noise. Yes, I'm a little mad about the noise conserding the price. I like the fact that most local shops carry Shoei replacement parts in stock.
Just do it, you can always change it, improve it, sell it or scrap it tomorrow.
