Note to the Reader: We’re reminded that the Simpson brand doesn’t have the rights to the “Bandit” lid name in Europe (via BillysCrashHelmets), so the “Ghost Bandit” and “Mod Bandit” are retitled to “Venom” and “Darksome” across the pond… don’t let the name change fool you!

Here’s the list of helmets updated to ECE 22.06 compliance, courtesy of coverage from Superbike News:
