Arai has just unveiled two new models to honour Nicky Hayden, following his tragic death earlier this year. The two helmets show off the graphics that the MotoGP World Champion wore during his last season in the Superbike World Championship.
Speaking to the American press, Nicky’s brother Tommy Hayden said, “Nicky was always very proud of his relationship with Arai. He spent a lot of time and many contributions in his designs.” Arai released a statement saying, “we felt it was right to continue with Nicky’s replicas to keep his legacy alive, especially for his many fans.”
The first model is the all new Corsair-X Nicky-7, which has been designed with Starline graphics that Nicky wore during the first five rounds of the Superbike World Championship during the 2017 season. Available in sizes ranging from XS to 2XL it’ll cost around £673.
The second model that has been released is the off-road ready VX-Pro4 Nicky-7, which incorporates the same design as the Corsair-X. It’s also available in sizes from XS to 2XL and will cost around £561.
