Any recommendations on where to get a good price on a pair of silver Schuberth Concept helmets, be it website, or local to St. Louis? TIA for your help.

Best Price for Schuberth Concept Helmet

The only place that I have seen them for sale in St. Louis is Prestige Motor Sports (formerly BMW Motorrad) at 4011 Forest Park Parkway, about 5 blocks east of Kingshighway.

Markie,
I know of the place. I'll rattle their cage tomorrow to see if they have in-store stock for trial fit. Thanks for the heads up.

I have one,..... great helmet! They run small, so you'll need one size larger than you usually wear. I bought mine 2 years ago at a motorcycle expo in Pittsburgh, and paid way too much. Like close to $400

Dr. Rob, Pete Arnold and I looked at them last weekend @ Westchester BMW. They do run small. The best price they would give us, was $449 + tax.

Guess some shopping is in order.

I will say this though, The Dealership was phenomenal. They gave us a full tour of the facility, and i do mean full. They were well aware that we all were Wingers and not interested at all with purchasing a Beemer. We were invited to come back anytime, and take anyone of there Demo bikes, or anyone of the used bikes on the floor for a test ride. Test ride would be solo and for as long as we wanted for that day.

I have never been in a Honda dealership that made us so welcome.

I still don't want a beemer. but I would not mind going back for the coffee, donuts and warm fuzzy.

I've heard that Schuberth does not allow discounting on their helmets. I'm not sure how true this is but it's what was told to me while I was shopping last year.

Schuberth helmets

"Quality is remembered (and enjoyed) long after you have forgotten about the price"! I have never seen Schuberth helmets discounted and after owning two of them for 3 years, I wouldn't hesitate to buy two more if needed. Of course there are lots of cheap "knock offs" that look the same but "under deliiver" and "over promise" if you are worried about price as your only measure of product desirability! When you have a product as good as the Schuberth helmet, features alone should sell it to the people who care about purchasing the best product to protect their intelligence.

Just did a little checking around....

New England Motorcycle Emporium in Bradford, MA has the Schuberth line.
I spec'd out an XL Titanium Metallic Concept for price, $375.99 plus $17.50 shipping.

As it turns out, this is about 5 miles from me....something to do on a cold New England day!

If you noticed, I spelled out clearly what helmet I wanted. I agree whole heartedly that quality and functionality are paramount to me. Call me a fool, but I still prefer to get the best, for the least. I truely appreciate the help I have received here on the board.

are BMW dealers the only ones selling the Schuberth helmets? That is the only place I have seen them.
