This lid is also Smart HJC-ready, meaning it’s built to take the 10B or 20B Bluetooth comm units (sold separately) if you like.
The U.S. gets six colorways: semi flat black, black, white, semi flat titanium, silver, or wine. Meanwhile, Europe gets six colorways as well: semi flat black, semi flat pearl white, metal black, n.grey, pearl white, or semi flat metallic blue.
