Could you pull off the Vespa V-Stripe look?

Vespa are no stranger to a bit of merchandising, and why would you be when you’re one of the most iconic brands on earth? From T-shirts to tea towels, polo shirts to pencil cases, there ain’t much you can’t buy with Vespa written on it.

New to the accessories and lifestyle range are the V-Stripe Helmets, which Vespa say ‘…add a vibrant splash of colour to every ride, whatever the weather.’

They’re certainly not subtle and come in five eye-popping shades – Yellow, Red, Black, White and Azure – and feature equally lurid and contrasting graphics, inspired by the letter ‘V’ in the Vespa logo, plus an Italian flag shield graphic on the side, and the Vespa logo too – just in case.

The demi-jet design offers all-round vision for navigating crowded city traffic , and makes the helmets compact enough to fit in the under-seat storage compartments found on most modern scooters.

They’re approved to the current ECE2205 safety standard, have an ABS shell and are secured with a micro-adjustable, quick-release , seatbelt-style strap.
Inside there’s a breathable, hypo-allergenic textile lining, and there are three visor options to choose from: standard and shaped short visors, as well as a long version.

Vespa V-Stripe helmets are made in Italy, come in sizes XS-XL and retail at £139.99.

    Don’t know why anyone would wear anything other than a full face. There’s nearly a 20% chance that when you go down, you’re going to face plant right on your chin. Oh well. Wait a year and then go to ebay if you really want one.
