A good snell M2010 certified helmet around 10k(~$200)

After reading this: Open vs Full Face Helmets :Open vs Full Face Helmets | Team-BHP

I decided to go for a full face helmet(drive safe than look cool) preferably with Snell M2010 certification.

This video from Revzilla https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JRzkt17bJM says the ARAI RXQ is the best bet for around ~$200 which is snell 2010 certified.

But I am not able to find any helmet from the ARAI on the online stores in India. I was able to spot SOl and AGV.

If any one knows where a good snell M2010 certified helmet could be bought in India(online preferrable) or a store which sells one (preferably in Bangalore). Please let us know.

Looking for :
full face helmet
snell M2010 certified
around 10k-15k INR (~$200 - ~$250)

I had been through this phase just a month back. I must admit, I couldn't find any Arai or AGV within my budget. Unfortunately, most of the AGV sold here in India is not actually manufactured by AGV. They are outsourced it to some Indian Manufacturer.

But then I discovered SOL Helmets and I must say they are simply amazing considering what you pay for it. Sold under the brand GMAX in America and DOT Certified, It had won the best budget helmet in 2008. SOL/GMAX 68S is the model and I would recommend to you. Costs less than 10k and Available in Bangalore, Megha Enterprises - Lalbhag Road.
I have attached the pictures of my helmet so you can see how they look like.

Thanks for the link looked into it. Prices are too steep(almost double the actual cost) here probably due to the import duty!
