for me the chin bar is not too close. I figured out how to attach the chin bar after i put on the helmet - huge plus!
unfortunately you need goggles at highway speed without the chin bar as it allows GREAT airflow. despite the internal visor its very light. more noisy than a ff/modular. but not too loud. the sun visor does not come down far enough which is a bummer, but i notified nolan. i use a tinted face shield in leui of that. changing the face shield for night riding is very easy. i'd go with the n43e vs this one if you really want to use the sun visor. otherwise this should go on sale as the new ones arrive. surprisingly this holds up well in rain at highway speeds even without the chin guard, no leaks, no wet face!

BUT - since I have gone in-between sizes I had to choose something else.
these are very warm with the liner, the zippers help when it heats up.
I have ridden in jeans and thermals with just the pants, no liner in 31 degree temps at 45mph and they kept me warm on a short ride.
the medium is too tight in the tummy and the large is too big in the seat and legs, just my luck!

I bought these as winter over pants and you will freeze without heated gear on in these pants under 55 degrees at highway speeds.
the alpine stars st-5s are warmer, same with the field sheer mercury pants.

I had a n102, another n90, and an n43. i really like this helmet, easy to get on/off, solid chin mechanism, much better than any other modular and I have had hjc and tried on a multitec. i will continue to buy nolan, the only other one that compares is agv. but its not made as well as nolan. i just wish it was easier to swap the face shields.

AGV Miglia 2 Helmet All the same great features as the Miglia Modular Helmet with the added bonus of a sun visor Removable and washable liner One-hand opening system Quick release buckle HIR-TH thermoplastic resin shell Anti-scratch, anti-fog shield Dynamic ventilation with controlled airflow Sun visor included DOT certified AGV Miglia 2 Helmet RevZilla Opinion The AGV Miglia 2 represents a basic modular in the AGV line. Flip-up functionality, Italian styling and a reasonable investment are the key takeaways on the AGV Miglia 2 Helmet. The only difference on the Miglia 2 Helmet is that the sun visor is included compared to purchasing is separately with the regular AGV Miglia. Overall the if you need a reasonably price Modular to add to your lineup and your style works with Italian flavor of this guy, the AGV Miglia 2 could be a good option.

not a nolan but very nice for the price. its easier to change face shields than the n90. this is very light. it does crack/creek noise-wise when handled but its quiet when riding. i can fit snow helmet speakers in this helmet easier than i can with a nolan. locking mechanism and chin strap are different than nolan and take some getting used to. chin lock works fine. pod airflow too.

slimmer fit, the full length zippers are true full length I can undo the whole leg and not worry about squeezing the pants on - most pants don't have this feature! I only have to undo one side all the way. No worries about maneuvering them over my thighs and hips. comfy knee armor. now to test them in cold temps! but thy are the best fitting over pants I have tried and I think I have tried 10 others. many of the others were baggy in the legs, or gave a puffy rear end, or were too tight in the waist.
Yes, I recommend this product.

1st off its not a true black, its a lighter black. The stripes are more grey than white.
This thing does breath well and had good airflow with the rear vents. I wish it had some arm and chest vents along with a mesh liner. The removable thermal liner is a nice addition. Its a good euro fit. I think it runs just a tad big, but I can take this jacket into the 40s at highway speeds by adding a micro puff under it. The armor is comfy too. Very comparable to Dainese. I have 3 other Dainese jackets. I've worn the jacket in the late afternoon in 79 degrees and in the upper 40s in the morning, I am surprised at the versatility. A waterproof liner would be another nice touch - I wonder if the H20 Out liner will zip in?
The optional back armor is super comfy compared to Dainese. And there is no hump back look to it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
