14r Green Helmets to match yet??

Does anyone make a helmet that matches the 2012 ZX14r green colors yet. I think the specific color is: Golden Blaze Green 14r.


If so do you know the make and model?

I had a helmet painted to match the bike. There are one or two helmets on the market , like Monster Energy replicas, with green in the design but nothing I liked and nothing in Golden Blazed Green. The air-brush artist who did this for me said it was a difficult paint to work with. Not cheap either but now I have a unique helmet. If you can't find a helmet then have your own created like I did

Mine from the rear, you can see the Golden Blazed Green a little better.

Bob - looks great.
What's the Golden Blazed Green color code in the detail?
My AGV is just standard one.

Sorry but I don't have the code. The company who did the work specialise in bike paintwork and have done some great airbrush art, luckily I know the owner and his business is near to my home. They obtained the paint. I just gave them my design, done in Photoshop and paid the bill.

Bob and Vmatti's helmets look great! But I am biased towards AGV helmets!

The AGV is very nice, didn't see it before I had my Shoei painted. I could have been tempted.

However, for the same price as a new helmet I had my blue Shoei done and I'm not likely to see another like it as it's a one-off. Also it is the exact paint match.

Also I met some very obliging guys from one of the importer/distributors who gave me an ACU sticker for it. The gold sticker is what's needed if you use a helmet in any competition here in the UK.

BobC, so you are locating in the UK but you have ZX-14R not ZZR1400 2012, right?

Vmatti,

Do you know the model of AGV green you have? Been looking for one and if I had the model number or name may help me run it down..is it a 2011 or a 2012 model AGV helmet?

Thanks it really looks like a perfect match...like that dark shield too.

It's a ZZR1400 but sometimes I refer to it as 14R since Bikeland is a US website.

This helmet will be offered back in USA in 6 months according to factory rep today phone call.

Suggested making them in Golden Blaze Green to compliment the ZX14r and they were very receptive...time will tell....

Stay tuned to AGV site.
