Purchased the Givi E250 Universal Adapter Plate hoping it would work for my '09 BMW F800ST. Doesn't look like it's going to work out without modifications. Too much trouble, so I think I will just stay with my Givi side cases. I wish a true BMW adapter plate was available, but I suppose there are patents to contend with.
As always, Revzilla is a top shelf retail operation. Shipping is FAST! Returns are EASY if it does not work out.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Being new to motorcycles my motivation for purchasing the EXO 750 was features to price point. Although I wanted good protection I was not ready to shell out the BIG bucks. Now that I have 800 miles under my belt and know I'll be riding for many years to come I am ready for an upgrade.
The EXO does the job. Most everything is above average but it does not excel in any area.
Here is my take:
Cons
1) It does fog up at lower temperatures (30-45 degrees). It is not fog free.
2) The pump is questionable. If it fit properly you would not need this system.
3) There is plenty of wind noise at higher speeds (50 mph>).
4) The shield does not have a tight seal.
5) I need to fuss with the shield in the cracked position. The gap varies each time I open it. Often it is at an angle.
6) The hinge for the shield could be better. It's not smooth.
Pros
1) The price is right for an entry level helmet
2) You get a lot of value for the dollar
3) Style - it looks good. My daughter is a Harry Potter fan. She thought the logo was from HP.
I recommend this helmet for a back up or for your occasional passenger.
As they say you get what you pay for. Don't expect this helmet to be your last.
Yes, I recommend this product.
