Shoei NeoTec...due for a refresh?
I'm pondering the purchase of a Shoei modular. I like the NeoTec but the design has been around since, I believe, 2012 and my experience with other Shoei's (RF1100, RF1200) is that they evolve and get replaced with new versions, ostensibly because they've improved things. The NeoTec has certainly been around for a while.
If a new model was on its way, the remaining NeoTecs would probably get cheaper - would hate to pay top dollar for a model that would be on its way out shortly thereafter - or I might prefer the new model.
Anyone have any idea when this model will get its next refresh?
Note to Shoei: think about creating some form of chin curtain for your modular that could work around a boom mic! Sprung/hinged? Some kind of slot?
