I bought my first Kat in 1991, brand new, a red 600. No pics though.

I don't get what the large looking thing on top of the helmet is supposed to do? Whats its purpose other than looking like some sort of Star Wars bounty hunter

So just for looks then....mostly. Might be okay to wear on a bike where you sit more upright, but there is a con that I can see already. On a sports bike, you lean more forward. I can see that visor creating a lot of down force on the helmet thus leading to neck cramps while trying to fight the wind over long periods. Doesn't make sense to wear these types of helmets on a Katana....unless you want to strain your neck muscles.
