Bought a new SMK Retro helmet: 5 pros & 5 cons

The helmet did not have a tinted visor available at the time of purchase.

BHPian Torino recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Picked up the SMK Retro helmet couple of weeks back. Wrote a small review with more photos in the ownership thread.


  • Fantastic retro design with some modern features.
  • Double D ring lock.
  • Comes with Pinlock 70 preinstalled.
  • Anti-microbial treated removable liners.
  • Provision for wearing sunglasses and helmet goggles.


  • On the heavier side at 1650g.
  • Wind noise.
  • Expensive at Rs5.7k. I think 5k is a good price considering the above pros & cons.
  • No tinted visor available at the time of purchase.
  • Lack of availability. Especially S size and white color.
