Arai has revealed its RX-7V TT 2020 helmet as per the tradition that it has been following for many years now. Arai has been making special helmets to commemorate the Isle of Man TT since 2007.
No one knew that the world will be hit by a deadly coronavirus. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, almost all motorsport events have been cancelled or postponed including the 2020 Isle of Man TT.
“These are challenging times and sometimes sport must take a back seat to life,” says Ingmar Stroeven, Arai Helmet (Europe) B.V. Managing Director on their website. “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 Arai RX-7V TT 2020 helmet is designed by Aldo Drudi. It features a combination of black, red, and gold colours along with interesting elements of IOM TT. The helmet has been priced at 1149 Euros (AED 4719) and will be available from June.
