Dual purpose helmet for street use

I am curious to see if anyone uses a helmet like the Arai XD4 for street use. Reason for asking is that I currently have the Arai Signet Q and it its so snug around my face that it causes my glasses to fog up even with the visor fully open. I have been told that the XD4 is the same head shape but has more clearance between the chin bar and my face. I would remove the bill for street use.

I have tried on Schubert, Shoei RF1100, HJC, Nolan and none of them fit with any degree of comfort.

For reference my ride is a 2012 RT.
