I actually have the new Roof V8, and gotta say, it''s a really decent helmet. I have a shoei multitec as well - another flip face - and it compares well in all ways. good ventilation, comfortable, great visibility. Has a snap strap instead of the old-skool kind, which is nice.
The snap shut isn't as user friendly as the multitec, which just has one button, but once you get used to the two snaps on the side, it's fine. I think I also read it's one of the highest-rated flip-front helmets, safety-wise, in Europe.
Haven't worn it in a downpour, nor had it above 200 kph, or for a long road trip, so I can't comment on those qualities yet. But it's the reason my basically brand-new shoei is sitting on a shelf...
