AGV Corsa Velocity Italy Helmet
Great helmet so far.
This helmet has a very comfortable fit, snug all over without any drag to develop into irritation. They even cut out spaces to fit ears. Best of all it has an adjustable liner. It came feeling too wide, then I adjusted it to the other side and it was too narrow, placing the tabs in the middle made it fit just right. The wide view is very practical on the road, especially for shoulder checking. Great airflow, and I never have any trouble keeping my head where I want it at any speed. This is a significant upgrade to the Shark RSR2 I have been wearing for years. I hope it is durable.

Top lid - Comforatble, light, looks a treat
My first helmet was a Arai RX-Q which i used for close to 3 years before I felt I wanted an upgrage. Got onto the AGV Corsa and have been using it for one year now and its an absolute treat.
The first thing i notice was it is very light. The shape around the neck and back means it doesn't foul my jacket that has the hump up top.
Freeway riding at 100km/hr I notice a whole lot less buffeting by the wind, the lid seems to cut through the air well and keep steady, even in heavy winds. Used the lid for various track days at Phillip Island and its the same deal, speeds of 200+ down the main straight coming into the first right hander, poke the head out as I am leaning in and she's steady.
The lid flows like a champion at speed, but can be a bit warm just cruising around town in the start stop traffic.
My only grief with the lid is the noise level, recently threw on the RX-Q for a little change and its only then I realised how loud the Corsa actually is. The wind noise and if you have a pipe on your bike, will be loud. Not deafening, but its there and you do notice it. But if you love the sound of your bike, its not going to faze you at all!
Top lid, would recommend.

Excellent helmet, worth the price.
Have been racing with a Shoei X-12 for the last 2 years, after a major crash needed a new helmet. Liked the style of the AGV, so ordered one up. The fit was as advertized, the weight was incredibility light. The visibility was incredible in full head down.
Raced at Miller Motorsport Park this weekend and at full speed in 6th gear there was no buffeting or shake, rock solid.
Ventilation was very good, can not tell you about fogging at this point. One point is the strap is a little on the short side, seems like you have to fumble a little to get through D-rings.
Sizing was perfect, I was on borderline of MS-ML, went with MS and was snug but comfortable. . The visor is thick and robust, also clean and clear, no distortion. Overall happy with purchase.

Wow...you get what you pay for
Just received one of these recently and I have to say I'm very impressed with everything about it. Fits my head perfect, fantastic looking, great airflow. There is a reason this helmet is expensive...and worth every penny. I have owned everything from an Arai to a Scorpion and I have to say this ranks as one of the best if not THE best I've ever had.

Excellent product by AGV

Good view port for a tucked position -super high opening.
Not a lot of sound insulation, but it's very aerodynamic so it's not making a lot of its own noise. I wear earplugs anyway, but it's just not like "RF-1200 quiet". Not quite as comfortable to me as a Corsair-V either, but if you want to put your chin on the tank and still see where you're going it's the best. Very nicely built, beautiful fit and finish, I like the shield closure system, shields are easy to swap, chicks dig it... A++

Decent enough for a top dog
I have been riding with my Corsa from Revzilla for 5 months so far. Did long distance through Nova Scotia, NYC Boston, Boston Montreal in it. Around 3.5k miles tops.
I am overall happy with the product. It's very stylish compared to my many previous helmets- Bell Revolver, AGV Skyline, Schuberth S2 or C2,... The Corsa is by far the best looking, most aggressive helmet on the road. With my Ducati we're a head-turner.
A few things to take note- There is a lot of noise on this helmet. Mostly wind noise, if you wear silicone ear plugs you should be okay. BTW, for noise reduction, get Schuberth. In general the Corsa annoys you with less noise than the majority of Bell helmets.
It's fairly light, not the lightest I've had, but on long distances you can really appreciate the fact this helmet is lighter than just about 80-85% of the helmets out there.
There are some fitting issues, as you can read from other reviews here. Mine happens to be that the cheek inserts were way too tight. Since they were not adjustable, I had to take a knife and cut out most of the foam insert on each side so I don't get bruises or suffocate after every ride. I am not fat btw- 6 ft 175 lbs I don't have bloated cheeks. This helmet is tight. My size is XXL (I have a big head).
It was not easy fitting my Sena bluetooth into this but it is possible.
Conclusion- buy it if you want a light, racy and aggressive looking helmet. It's not an all round helmet, there are some fatal, or otherwise annoying shortcomings, but if you're rich and going for the looks, stop looking- this is your helmet, period.
PS: And you can do long tours with it. It's not so bad just sometimes annoying. see above
