Riding with the NXR for the last year, it is very good up to high speeds, with minimal forces when you turn around your head, no buffeting, moderate wind noise, but over apron. 230 km/hr pulls your head back.

All I can say is my Shoei RF1200 Parameter matches the "motorsport" colours perfectly:

  that looks pretty slick!  I was eyeballing that lid but I cant justify swapping out my silver/black RF-1200.

Thank you everyone for the replies! After reading your positive reactions, I ordered an NXR / RF-1200.

Shoei RF-1200 Parameter, not hard to find. (that's how I found that image to link, tbh)

I should add the RF-1200 has been discontinued so you can only buy them if they're in stock, I bought mine from FortNine.

SInce you are going with the Shoei, it's definitely worth the investment to buy the pinlock system for their visors too. It completely eliminated my lenses fogging up.

My RF-1200 came with the pinlock, FWIW.

I have a Shoei RF-1200 and CWR-1 Transitions Pinlock-Ready Face Shield. 

My 2017 S1000R is Red/Black, my helmet goes well, in my opinion.

One factor that was on my list was shell size, some are physically larger for the same size fit. I wear a large in Shoei  and Schuberth. The C4 fit well and I did not have the same problems as in the C3. So shell size tipped the scale. The smaller helmet helps with things when you turn your head. Also the larger window in the C4 is welcome. Wind noise....I always use foam ear plugs, the corded type. Always. I spent some boring ride time messing with the noise in my C4. It seems to completely stop if I seal the neck roll to jacket gap.  With the chin piece in the air flow in reduced but so is the large bug up inside my helmet from my chest thing. Not a problem on my K13S bike. Another thing I would like to recommend that is sort of in line with all the various helmet issues is that I installed a MRA double bubble wind screen. Yes it messes with original cool look but it sure helps when you get over 75 mph. Especially on high speed multi car passes. Blends with a good helmet.
