It was time to replace my Schuberth Concept after about 5 years of use. At the rally, I tried the N102 and the new Concept. The Concept felt heavier, and the material around the neck (I think for sound) felt terrible to me. I bought the Nolan. I have about 2K on it now. It is much lighter than the old Concept and noticeably quieter. It also has better ventilation and was Autocom friendly. The external sunvisor works well, except that, if I crack the visor open, the sunvisor raises as well. The Schuberth was superior in that regard. Anyway, the N102 is a winner so far. I also recently added a set of Suburban Machinery barbacks to my 1150RT. They made a significant improvement in comfort.
