I got one of those 'thrown in' with my new bike. Very nice. I had a Vega Althura before and the V-tune is 100% better. more comfortable, less noise, the drop down tinted visor is very cool, and the BT coms work well. Thinking of getting the wife one now so when she rides the scoot I can talk to her...
