2014 AGV K-3 SV full-face helmet – built in sun visor – estimated RM1,000

AGV-K-3-SV5

 

AGV has updated their K-3 base model to this 2014 model, the K-3 SV. SV stands for Sun Visor (thanks user rihuhs for telling me this) and as you can see there is the sun visor inside the helmet. Before this, the popular helmet from AGV that have sun visor is the AGV Stealth SV, but that one is not easy to find in Malaysia.

Having the sun visor is a good thing in Malaysia since it can prevent the scorching hot sun blinding you from the road. Based on the JPJ regulation, it is illegal to use a dark or reflective tint visor, so, you can avoid it by using the clear visor on the outside and the darker sun visor on the inside.

I think this K-3 SV is still not available in Malaysia as I checked in mudah. Maybe it will come in few more months and the price of RM1,000 is just the estimation on the current AGV K-3 without the SV is at RM750.

The maker of the popular and different kind of helmet, Nlo-Moto,Russia, bring us this Alien full face helmet for riders. Previously, they have take the world by storm with the introduction of the Predator helmet in 2013. By the look of it, I think the base model for the Alien conversion is from AGV since the visor resemble the one AGV have very closely. Getting this helmet means that you are there to fight with the Predator for the reenactment of Alien vs Predator.
