If you’re looking for a retro crash helmet in the right colour to match your scooter, then you’ll want to check the new shades available in the summer 2012 helmet range from Vespa. The Vespa Granturismo is now available in Etna Brown (to complement the limited edition Vespa Vie Della Moda LX) and Midnight Blue (matching the LX, PX and Piaggio Beverly Sport Touring). Meanwhile the Vespa Copter comes in Grigio Titanio, or grey titanium (matching the Typhoon and NRG).
Both feature the demi-jet design on an open face lid to help all-round vision, and they’ll also both fit into under-seat storage. They feature ABS shells, certified to ECE 2205 safety standards, with micro-adjustable chinstraps to keep them secure. The Vespa Granturismo helmet comes in sizes XS-XL at £149.99. The Vespa Copter is in XS-XL at £119.99 and is ready for an IDI Phone Bluetooth system should you so desire. For more, see www.vespa-scooters.co.uk. or call 0117-9725552.
