First, let me say I have a Shoei head I have had Shoei helmets and like them, I was wearing my RF-900 with great result when I cracked some years ago. That said, my current Duo-Tec and System III Evolution helmets are begging to be replaced and I am in the market.
I have tried on the new Shoei RF-1000 and the RF-1100 and both fit well in XL. I would buy right now if it weren't for the $400 price tag. I know the old adage, "if you have a cheap head buy a cheap helmet" but I tried on one of the new Scorpion EXO-700 helmets and found it to be also as nice a fit as the Shoei offerings (but in XXL, go figure), well made, light and only about $180.
Any thoughts from people that have both and might be able to compare fit, finish, weight, and "quietness"?
