BMW Motorrad Developing Race Helmet

BMW Motorrad is going to expand its range of motorcycle helmets next year with a helmet tailored to motorcycle racers (or those with racing ambitions) called, obviously, the BMW Race Helmet. In addition to wind tunnel tests and test rides, the new helmet was used during the IDM Superbike (German national championship) races last weekend, June 15-17, at the German Nürburgring. Professional racers Joerg Teuchert, Gareth Jones, Lucy Glockner and Irek Sikora from the 2012 Wilbers BMW Team as well as Arie Vos from the Van Zon Team used the helmet under real racing conditions for the first time. Their comments will be used to further develop the helmet before it goes on sale in 2013. The Race Helmet will be sold alongside the existing BMW Sport Helmet. Neither helmet is expected to be sold in the United States.
