Question which color Shoei Multitec

I have a blue 06 LT. I am looking for opinions of wich color matches this bike the best. Light silver, or the anthracite. Any input will be appreciated.

Re: which color Shoei Multitec

I have a green LT with the silver on the bottom. My last helmet I got was a Nolan N-102 in the Platinum Silver that matches the bottom of the bike really well. I would have got a green one to match but no one makes that color.
White would be my next choice.

Re: which color Shoei Multitec

I am pretty well sold on getting a Shoei Multitec. I am just looking for input from people who have bought a light silver or anthracite colored helmet. looking to blend the helmet in with the seats,lower fairing, wheels. Each one is slightly different in color. Just wondering wich color will fit the best. Thanks

Re: which color Shoei Multitec

I've been wearing light silver helmets for years. I like the way they look, and I believe they are the third best color to wear, visibility-wise. (White and yellow are 1 and 2, but I just can't do that. ) Plus, the lighter colors stay cooler when that sun is beating down on you. Not that I would know anything about that as of the past 6 months!

I have an anthracite '04 LT. I have 2 shoei helmets, an RJ Air Platnium and a Multitec. Both are light silver. Matches anything.

The wife and I have silver, it matches any bike, and any riding gear and has good contrast in low light.

Does your light silver multitec best match the wheels, or the lower fairing?

They match the wheels and lower caliber lights ... I am partial to light colors, particularly in the summer.
