MOTORRAD conclusion on the AGV K-3 SV

The AGV K-3 SV, which has meanwhile been manufactured in China, delivers a decent overall performance, especially the snappy fit. Of the points of criticism, the most annoying one is probably the easiest to remove from the factory: A larger Pinlock inner visor will probably work wonders.

MOTORRAD verdict: good
