Shoei Hornet ADV
« on: January 07, 2019, 03:49:43 PM »
Anybody got/had one? It's also known as the X2 in the USA.

How was it on the road, especially at higher speeds in terms of stability/buffeting etc....?

I already have a GT Air so I'm aware of Shoei quality. The GT fits very well but I tried a Hornet on yesterday and it was perfect. So plush and snug.

I'm interested to know as well.

I've never met a Shoei I didn't like, and this is on my short list.  :152:
