ARAI has announced the latest in a long line of motorcycle helmets celebrating the now cancelled (for 2020) Isle of Man TT races.
The 2020 Isle of Man TT Limited Edition Arai RX-7 is the latest in a long line of IoM TT limited editions from Arai, stretching back to 2007. Given the helmets long history with the races and the fact it is a yearly phenomenon, the development and launch date of it would have been set in stone long before we were given the call to stay indoors.
The 2020 version of the lid uses a Black/Red/Gold colour combination with the familiar, TT-specific details, like Ellan Vannin in Celtic-style lowercase script mirroring ISLE OF MAN either side of the central Arai logo. Naturally, the triskelion gets a showing and is highlighted in Gold (against an outline of the 37.73mile/60.725km TT course) on the sides and chinbar. A stylised outline of the Senior Trophy finishing touches on the rear of the helmets is the finishing touch.
Ingmar Stroeven, Arai Helmet (Europe) B.V. Managing Director:
“These are challenging times and sometimes sport must take a back seat to life. We were really looking forward to revealing our 2020 Isle of Man TT Limited Edition RX-7V on Friday the 27th of March on the Isle of Man, alongside Michael Dunlop and Steve Plater. But it’s not to be. For all of us at Arai, the TT is such a special event and one we engage with completely, in terms of riders and fans alike. And it is, for this reason, we have decided to go ahead with this year’s Isle of Man TT Limited Edition RX-7V – which we feel is absolutely stunning – and do our part to keep the irrepressible feeling of the TT alive.”
The 2020 Isle of Man TT Limited Edition Arai RX-7 is priced at £799.99, and will come complete with a free helmet bag worth £44.99.
Arai is also going to donate £40 from the sale of each helmet to the NHS Charities Together.
