Those who prefer a darker motif can also avail of the Nocturne colorway in a sleeker black finish with white accents. A black and pink version of the Nocturne is also available for those who want to inject a dash of color into their outfit.
The Shoei Z-8 boasts features which put comfort and safety as top priority. Shoei is calling its design approach to the Z-8 as “comfort performance” and has equipped it with a new shield system which improves visibility and operability. For added comfort, the Z-8 incorporates an efficient ventilation system which makes use of operable vents situated on the front, top, and back of the helmet. The Shoei Z-8, in its Nocturne graphic option, retails for JPY 66,000, or the equivalent of $600 USD.
