System 6 helmet

Checked with the dealers in Adelaide Australia and the system 6 helmet should be coming to Australia at the end of the year. This is great news ! Now we need to get Schuberth to import and get the sticker !
cheers Andrew

Re: System 6 helmet

That's fantastic news. My system four is getting a little shabby. In the meantime, I bought a Shoei Multitek. A fantastic helmet, but it's not a BM helmet. I hope your information is correct as you've now turned me on.

Just further to the conversation, what is the relationship with the BM helmets and Schuberth? Please excuse my ignorance if the answer is common knowledge.

Cheers and kindest regards

Re: System 6 helmet

Hi Paul ,yes I think my info is good , came from the horses mouth so to speak. I think Schuberth makes BMW helmets. If you do a search you can read about them, the latest version is the C3 a flip helmet and also available in girl sizes.
I notice some of the BMW riders in Melbourne using them , I have not been game...would hate to imagine what would happen if the police noticed after an accident ?
Do you really have to have that little sticker ? If they ever arrive here legally I would imagine they would be very expensive. They also have a bluetooth attachment,ideal for the K1600GT riders !
cheers Andrew

Re: System 6 helmet

Schuberth does indeed make BMW Helmets (and not just the S6, most of the previous models too). That being said, although the Schuberth C3 and the BMW S6 are very similar, they are not the same at all. The fit is completely different, so if a C3 fits you, the S6 might not and vice-versa.

Also, spare parts and accessories (screens, foam inserts, etc.) are different and not compatible. Same thing with the BMW Bluetooth kit for the S6: it doesn't work with the C3.

Both helmets fit me well and are pretty much identical in terms of usability, comfort, noise level and quality of manufacture (duh!). If you sweat a lot, though, beware: replacing the S6's inner foams costs about twice as much as those in the C3. Then again, pretty much everything with a BMW logo on it is more expensive that without it...

Re: System 6 helmet

Hi guys,
I have a C3, and the sticker ummmm well lets say It fell off my old hemet. Although a nice helmet Im a bit disapointed with it. Its quite noisy with the shield down, mostly on the LHS, I cant work out why. After about 2 hrs of riding I get quite a sore spot just above the centre front, it leaves a big red mark on my forhead. On the + side the internal slide down visor is fantastic, and it comes standard with a pinlock anti fog visor.

I think that if the Shoei Multitek had come with the internal slide down visor I would have got that.
