Yes, Shoei produces completely different helmets for different markets around the world. Not only are the physical shape and fit of the helmets different for the various markets, but homologation standards vary as well.
A few manufacturers are selling the same units by model name in the US as in the UK, which is a plus for those of us who appreciate the SHARP measures. I believe LS2, which tests better than many that cost 3-4X as much, is one of those manufacturers. The FF386 modular tests as well and is as feature rich as the Neotech, for under $200. The old adage that 'you get what you pay for' doesn't always apply... look at the C3's for example.

BUY THIS HELMET !! (A subliminal message ) You will remember nothing when you wake up and will be totally surprised when the USPS delivers your helmet

Yes, the model name will be the same, but it seems likely that a UK Neotec will be built to different homologation standards than a US Neotec. We are probably not comparing like with like.

If you are saying that there are more fat heads in the US, than in the UK, you might be mistaken.
I said, might.
