First of all, thanks to nhfirefighter13 for hooking me up with the great deal!
I tried to attach some pics, but they were too big. So if you're not familiar with this model, I've attached the pic from AGV's website. It's the XR2 Rossi World Champion.
And finally, a review will have to wait. It's raining today and the forecast calls for rain every day this week.

Does it come with a regular windscreen or just one for tearoffs?
The clear shield that came with it had tear-off tabs. Within minutes of taking it out of the box I put a tinted shield on it, but it doesn't have tabs. I never do trackdays so I'm not worried about it.

You're welcome. Definately let us know how you like it when you get a chance to take it out on a ride...cuz I want one too.

The tinted sheilds come with or without the tear-off tabs (I think) but the ones with were quite a bit more, if I remember correctly.

I think the flower on the front is going to cause problems with attracting guys like Charlie (ccwilli). *opening a spot for Baketech to step in*

Nice looking helmet. I am curious to discover if AGV has improved upon the 'average' name they currently have in the industry. Please note what Make/Model helmet you were wearing previously, when you report your findings on your new 'hat'.

I like the flower.
Kinda gives the helmet a little femininity there.
How's the weight?
I thought about getting this one, but opted for a light Suomy instead.

Wait a minute, it's not some flowery helmet like the Mugello replica (see pic).
Anyway, it's very light. I've been wearing a Q3R for several years and the XR2 is lighter, and seems a bit narrower (although that could be due to the new padding not yet conformed to my head).
As soon as I get a clear day I'll give a ride report. Since it's a race helmet I'm expecting it to be fairly noisy, but that's what earplugs are for.

I wouldn't do that if I were you...unless of course you really want to feel bad about how much you just spent on the new helmet.
Really!! How much are you guys asking? I just bought an HJC at a closeout price because I didn't want to pay the near $400 I've seen the Rossi replica advertised for.
