i cant think of anyone that actully carries Bell in house. i know walmart has bell products but little to no selection. gonna be hard to find what youre looking for in that price range tho. i know cycle gear has a scorpion 700 flat black for about 150ish. at least thats what it cost in 2010 when i bought mine lol

uhg you can get good helmets that are 'inexpensive'... Search the net for reviews.

even a 'bad' helmet, is better than no helmet. I'm using a bilt modular right now. Needed a good fit, inexpensive one to get to/from work. It's does the job for now til I get my helmet fund to where I want it for what I want to upgrade to.

Thanks everybody. I didn't know wal Mart had motorcycle gear lol. Wouldnt trust wal Mart with my life. I would pay 150 I might check that scorpion. I bought a shoei when I got my CBR. It was 400 then I gave it away with my bike don't wanna spend that type of money again! I'll just keep looking! Getting my new bike this weekend! I'll find something

+1 Any full-face helmet you buy with SNELL/ECE has roughly the same safety. I've found that past ~$250 the cost comfort line starts to flatten. It doesn't go away though! If an arai fits your head, there is no more comfortable helmet, though that comfort doesn't come cheap.

Looking to buy one...









Bell Arrow for about $100, Bell Vortex for about $160... U can find them at Motorcycles Unlimited or 2 Wheels Toyz...

I have the Vortex Flying Tiger, really good fit, SNELL 2010... got it from Motorcycles Unlimited... the Bell Ride Smart-1 is even a better fit but thats in the high $300s.

Bell Arrow I havent tried on... They also have the Bell Revolver (modular) for about $150 I think.
