Black looks better to me......BUT

I know you have your mind all made up, but you should take a few helmets for a test ride. I am not sure if you have had a chance to do so, yet. You will not appreciate a Shoei or Arai by just trying them on. The performance at speed is what sold me. The sound deadening, aerodynamics, ventilation, and weight really make a huge difference and IMO are worth every penny.
