Specify a budget, And Vehicle type.

I will recommend MT or SOL Full Face helmets. A good one will cost around 4000-6000rs, but will offer good protection.

If budget if limited then try Steelbird full face helmets.

Don't go fancy, half face, Motocross etc type helmets.

Choose offline and make sure it fits perfectly, which is very important.

Iam using a Pulsar 150 currently. But i might change to a Honda Shine SP in near future. In both cases i am not planning for reaching 3 figures in case of speed :).
Did a google search earlier and found good brands to be of Vega / Studds from India and Ls2 from china though it doesn't come with ISI certification. Iam basically looking for full face helmets with ISI Certification( Cops in my native are very strict about it). Iam ok with a budget of 1500 to 4000.

I use a Vega Axxor helmet. Cost me 2 . It is ISI and DOT(this certification is a must in the USA) certified. LS2 are good but lots of fake in the market. Be careful.
Also doesn't matter what speeds you ride, a good helmet will save your head.
