For Sale: Nolan N102 Black Helmet

Nolan N102 HelmetA friend is selling a brand new Nolan N102 Black helmet as in the pic. The helmet is a flip-up type. Which means the chin bar flips up to convert the helmet into a half face temporarily. This is very convenient at times.

The lid is still boxed (he will, of course, open it up to show it to you... heh heh). If you are interested (estimated landed cost is Rs 14,000. Which, from what I can tell is the exact dollar price (~$300) on the net), please call +91-98203-25593.

Below is the official Nolan dope on the lid:

N102 will be the uncontested leader in its category, as well as being the reference model for all flip-up helmets. Practical to use, and meticulously designed and finished, this helmet bears all the marks of quality: aerodynamic shell, ventilation devices (located on shell and chin guard) with excellent grip.

Aerodynamic polycarbonate shell with built-in spoiler for improved stability. Pivoting chinbar with stainless steel latching mechanism. Safety dual-action Centromatic release system. VPS (Vision Protection System) - short dark shield mounted on the outside of the shell adn moving independently from the clear shield with 3 positions. Fully removable and washable liner on snaps and tabs with extra neck roll for wind-noise reduction. Optically corect, tool-less quick-change lexan faceshield offers UV 400 protection. Chin curtain included. Microlock (adjustable quick release) retention system. Sanitized anti-microbial hypoallergenic interior. Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards.

If you plan to buy something that you will keep for 5 years, buy a new bike. As in recently launched. My suggestions. 100cc - Platina or CT100 (same bike, different clothes more or less. 125cc - Gladiator (well made, wel packaged, super comfortable). 150cc - wait for the Pulsar 150cc upgrade to come out, then decide between Apache and the new 150. Bigger - wait for the tests of the new 180, DTS-Fi and the forthcoming Hero Honda 'sporty' 150.

thanks a million for your advice...I think I will wait..and watch...and then go for 150cc or more ....

Sankoobaba said...

do you think pulsar-150 or apache are a better choice in 150cc category as compared to honda unicorn? why?..

that helmet looks right out of star wars or some such related sci-fi flick :-)

I have finally booked a bike, the kinetic blaze, expecting delivery this week (hopefully) and actually got a helmet before the bike! (the AGV i had mentioned on ur earlier post).

you know any store in mumbai that sells other riding kit (gloves, jacket)? tried looking around the net but could not find one.

Actually there are two places you can get riding kit in Mumbai. One is performanceracingstore.net (I remember reading about them in a motormag somewhere). The other is to call +91-9820325593

aha, thanks, that's perfect... now hopefully that diwali bonus is big enough :-)

yesterday, rode a 2 wheeler after almost 10 years! the last 2 wheeler being a cycle :-D

all i can say is that there is a lot of difference between the motorised and the non-motorised and the experience was quite a wake-up call... today is round two :-)
