The SMK Twister Logo was an upgrade from my old Studds Shifter. I bought it a year ago when I also bought my new motorcycle the Honda CB Hornet 160R. Before that, I had a scooter. So a comparable helmet was necessary with a 160cc bike. I did not want to go for any ISI-only certified helmets. Instead I wanted a DOT or ECE certified one with style, comfort and safety. After some search online, I came across the SMK brand which is a brand owned by Studds itself. My search finally settled on the Twister Logo yellow model and I bought it for ₹4,300 from Moto Central. This is a review of SMK Twister Logo after a one year use.
PROS : Good build quality - Sun visor - Pinlock-30 - ECE certified - Removable and washable liners - Multiple color options - Value for money
CONS : Heavier than specified - Matte finish lose color quickly - No Double D-Ring - Low quality stitching and inner lining materials.
The Twister is one of the many style-centric full-face helmets from SMK. It has many variants in many color and graphics combinations to match your style. I bought the yellow Logo variant, even though my bike was red.
SMK Twister is an affordable and stylish helmet with all necessary features and is Made in India. It is better than the competition in providing better finish, build quality, and extra features such as Pinlock by default compared to AXXOR, AXXIS etc. The ergonomics is best in the segment. The ₹4.3K price point is reasonable and if you're comfortable, GO FOR IT. If you have more budget consider any MT helmets such as Thunder3 SV which costs ₹2.5K more. It offers better quality but doesn't come with Pinlock visor. Twister is better than MT's Mugello in terms of features it offers for the same price. Mugello doesn't have sun visor or Pinlock. So Twister is one of the best you can get for this price.
