Scorpion EXO-R2000 Dispatch Helmet
LOVE this helmet!
This helmet has everything I'm looking for! I was looking for a helmet that had very little wind noise as I have a mic in my helmet. I wanted something that was going to be light and comfortable. My sena speakers fit perfectly in this helmet. I love all the features and that it comes with a smoked visor.
I will say, it's a little hard to get the helmet on but once it's on it's a perfect fit! This isn't a downside to me at all, but thought I would mention it in case that would bother a potential buyer.

I DIG IT!!
I just bought a new bike and I just so happened to be in the market for a new helmet. I was looking for the best bang for buck pretty much and this helmet offered more than what I originally was after. Helmet is scorpions top of the line tested by many racer including moto gp, both snell and dot rated, comes with not 1 but 2 shields, has a pump to adjust helmet to size if needed, and its pretty dang light for not being carbon fiber. I was lucky enough to be able to try this helmet on at the revzilla shop in philly before buying.
when I received the helmet it was really really tight on my head to the point I could barely take it off. its been a couple days wearing it on rides and its starting to break in a bit. I like the fact that I was able to wear my sunglasses with this helmet and also have ear phones in it. (I want to blue tooth it later on) Shields are nice and easy to replace. Airflows not bad at all. I haven't fogged the shield once and ive been trying too.
If you want a top notch helmet for a good price I would deff check one of these out.

This is a great helmet. In terms of looks, price ( competition is expensive) and features. There are lots of options available.
My gripe is only in one case. In a naked bike at around 70mph, the wind noise is loud, however if you duck to supersport level or have a wind screen the helmet is a lot quiet.

Great deal on a good helmet
Dot and snell rated, comes with 2 anti fog shields (neither have fogged yet), really tight when you first get it (takes about 2-3 rides to settle), speaker pockets, stupid s comes off, and its really light.

Super bang for your buck
Top of the line helmet from a reputable helmet maker for under $400?? Sign me up! I went into the showroom with full intentions of leaving with an Icon Airmada or Airframe. Coming from a 6year old Scoprion EXO-400, I figured anything would be an upgrade. After trying on the Icon helmets I was quite disappointed. Naturally my next move was to look at the Scorpion lineup. Went right to the top and tried on the R2000 and boy am I glad I did. The fit was perfect for my head and this thing is LIGHT in comparison to my EXO-400. Lots of airflow too.
In the product video here at revzilla, they mention this helmet's view is designed for someone in the 3/4 to full tuck position. I ride an FZ09 which is very upright and I don't have any issues with the positioning of the face shield opening or airflow or anything.

This is my 2nd helmet from Scorpion (and in general), and I am 100% satisfied with the purchase. I originally had an EXO-500 and this is a much better fit for me. The four shell sizes make my size M much trimmer than the M-L shell I had before, and the somewhat more long internal shape fits me better than the EXO-500, which always left a bright red mark on my upper forehead after longer rides. I am exactly in between Scorpion's recommended sizes for M and L, and this M fits perfect. I would worry that a L would be too big. I have a small build, and this helmet doesn't look as bobble-head to me (the phantom black paint helps as well).
The helmet looks excellent. The spoiler on the back gives it a very aggressive profile, and the included dark smoke shield with the phantom black paint gives it a very edgy look. I love the subdued details on the dispatch paint vs a regular matte black helmet.
The helmet is of noticeably higher build quality than the EXO-500. The shield "ellip-tec" mechanism is much better than whatever the 500 has. It took me a few seconds to swap out the clear shield for the dark smoke on my first try (no instructions, of course). The shield lock/crack mechanism is also much better than the 500's, which I could never find (and often locked on its own while riding). The lever is at least twice the length, and has a solid actuation when locking/cracking the shield. The vent mechanisms also have a more positive feel to them when opening/closing.
Internally the fit/finish seems to have slightly more attention to detail. The included chin curtain is nice, and the breath guard works well for me. The fabric feels a little softer than the EXO-500, and the lip on the neckroll makes a nice seal that I felt was lacking on the 500. The field of view is slightly bigger than the EXO-500, most likely because I get to have a smaller shell size. The cheekpad pumping mechanism works great to get a tighter fit than you could without it. I have no doubt that this helps with noise.
When riding I immediately noticed that there was less buffeting at all speeds than with my EXO-500. The overall wind noise is also less, ESPECIALLY the low-frequency grumbling from fairing/windscreen turbulence. I'm not sure if there is slightly more mid- and high-frequency noise, or if I am just noticing it more due to the greatly reduced low-end noise. The low-end was causing me the most trouble, since earplugs virtually do nothing to stop it since it is largely conducted through the skull from the helmet. The EXO-500 was almost as loud with earplugs as it was without, for me. I could rock max attenuation plugs and still have my ears ringing after a 30 minute ride. (I ride a Suzuki GS500F, and the fairing + screen with its upright position are a recipe for turbulent air)
I was initially considering a Shoei RF-1200, but as far as I can tell this helmet offers equivalent bang for fewer bucks. You get a nice helmet bag, an extra visor, a visor bag, and the pump system that is exclusive to Scorpion, all for a price that is just right (even with a graphic). Scorpion has several great products that are priced very affordably. As another reviewer said, this is an actual racing helmet with technology inspired by the bleeding edge. I have tried on/handled many high-dollar helmets in various local shops, and this helmet belongs up there with the best of them.
I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone.

I think I found the worlds best kept secret
Ok, I'm not typically someone to review products but this helmet was just too good to not let people know! If you are looking for the most bang for your buck this helmet is it. For only $400 you get a race helmet that Moto GP riders are wearing and that is a steal, plus two windscreens. The fit was true to size but it is certainly a snug race fit. I do track day riding and it was great because when I turn my head to look behind the this helmet didn't budge. Old helmets used to try to lift off my head. The inflatable cheek pads might be overkill but they did help me get a truly custom fit every time I put it on. At high speeds this helmet sliced through the air and was super stable and I love how tight the windscreen seals to the helmet because there is no annoying air blowing in my eyes. Speaking of airflow....this helmet has plenty to keep you cool with intake and exhaust ports to keep the air moving. They really got the styling right on too, it looks amazing. I took risk with this Scorpion since none of my friends have every owned one and was pleasantly surprised and I really think you will be too.
