New Haga and Harada replica Arai’s for 2010
13 November 2009 16:16
Two of Japan’s highest regarded racers of the recent years have updated replicas for 2010 – Noriyuki Haga and Tetsuya Harada.
The helmet design of three-time World Superbike runner-up Haga is an updated version of the lid he already wears.
The biggest change to the helmet, again on the top of the range RX7-GP shell, is the blue detailing on the flames.
But the nicer of the two, in our opinion, is the Harada replica.
The 250 and 500cc legend, best known for being speared off at the final corner of the final lap by Loris Capirossi who won the title as a result, has been retired for a few years from the top level scene.
But the likeable character is still considered very highly, not just in Japan, and his previous replicas have always been big sellers.
Arai has updated his design with a black and silver version, and a black, silver and gold option, too.
Both will be showcased at the NEC bike show later in the month and will retail for £589.99.
