Schuberth C4 vs. Shoei Neotec 2

     

               Schuberth C4            VS.           Shoei Neotec 2

Two Top-Of-Line Modular Helmets! Which is right for you?

Below is a comparison between the Shoei Neotec 2 and the Schuberth C4. Both modular helmets are excellent options providing premium safety and comfort, but without knowing the features of each, it is not easy to decide which is right for you. So lets begin…

SHELL & WEIGHT
Both the Neotec 2 and C4 are made from fiberglass; the C4 is 100% fiberglass and the Neotec 2 is a fiber glass mixture called Advanced Interfrated Matrix (AIM). The Shoei weighs slightly less than the Schuberth. However the Schuberth comes with the speaker and mic built in whereas the Neotec does not so once you add the SENA communication system to the Shoei, weight is just about the same.  

SOUNDPROOFING
Schuberth helmets are known for their quiet aerodynamic design and the C4 conitnues this tradition. Both helmets are designed to prevent air flow through the lower area of the helmet. The Shoei is euipped with a Vortex Generator in the chin zone that not only prevents the entry of air but also reduces noise considerably. Plus, it has a double rear spoiler, wind tunnel tested, that minimizes turbulence at high speeds making it great for not only touring but also sport bike riders.  

SCREEN
Both come with Pinlock anti-fog lense and anti-scratch treatment. Neither require special tools to remove the screen; both are easily removable. The Neotec 2 visor is not as high or wide as the C4 visor but the Neotec does have a carved edge that the C4 does not, allowing it to fit as tightly as possible agianst the helmet shell helping with soundproofing. One interesting side note is that the C4 does offer the possiblity of changing the sun visor depending on the type of light. 

CHIN BAR OPENING SYSTEM & CLOSURE
The Shoei offers a 2-click system so that once the chin bar is lifted, it can be pushed back one more time for a second click providing a bit of a locking mechanism. Both incorporate a micrometric retention system making them very quick and easy to operate.

VENTILATION
While both helmets have a sophisticated ventilation system, the Neotec 2 offers an extractor in the rear that the C4 does not. Both have air inlets in the upper zone and chin zone. 

INSIDE 
Interior padding in both helmets is removable and washable. The Schuberth interior is anitbacterial and fast drying and has been optmized for those that wear glasses. The Shoei was built with padding in the area of the ears which reduces external noise. 

WARRANTY
Both have 5 year warranties, however the Schuebrth you must register. Otherwise it is only a 2 year warranty. 

PRICE & COLOR
Price is very reasonable for this style helmet especially considering the quality offered to protect your body’s most important part! Both come in a variety of colors, some of which will make the base price go up a bit.The Shoei Neotec 2 starts at $699.00 and the Schuberth C4 starts at $749.  For a limited time only, call 301-497-8949 and ask about Bob’s exclusive offer on the Schuberth C4!

New Water-Cooled BMW R1200RT Spied Testing

Appeared in Motorcycle News
March 22, 2013
By Andy Downes

New water-cooled BMW R1200RT

New water-cooled BMW R1200RT

A fleet of all-new water-cooled BMW R1200RTs have been spied carrying out road testing in the South of France ahead of the launch of the completely new bike in 2014.

The R1200RT is the current best-selling tourer in the UK but will be replaced next year and use the same all-new water-cooled 125bhp motor from the recently launched BMW R1200GS adventure bike.

The GS was completely re-engineered with not just a new boxer engine but also a new chassis and a single-sided swingarm, shaft drive and exhaust system.

Four new bikes have been spotted testing in France – handily the BMW test team opted to cover the bikes in garish black and white swirly decals which meant they were easily seen. If they had just been painted black it’s highly doubtful anyone would have noticed!

Spy shot of the BMW R1200RT[/caption]We can see from the images they bike has the new engine from the GS along with the swingarm and shaft drive unchanged. The exhaust has a different silencer to the GS but this may not be the fully-finished production version.

The front shots show the bikes have fitted, at least as an option, the adaptive headlights from the BMW K1600GT model which adjust the level and actually tilt with the bike as it corners to give a longer view up the road while the bike is leant over.

The front fairing is modified too with new plastics around the new lights. The side panels have new air-ducts which are sited next to the new twin radiators which are now an integral part of the cooling of the new engine.
