BMW System 6 in fluorescent yellow

BMW Motorrad is now offering its System 6 helmet in a striking fluorescent yellow scheme.

The yellow lids, first developed byBMW Motorrad for Dutch police riders, are now being offered to the general public following high demand for it.

Weighing just 1570 grams, the System 6 helmet is particularly compact with its four-hinge design, even when flipped up.

It has a built-in drop-down internal sun shield, that allows immediate adaptation to changing light conditions, while its mist-resistant double-layered visor offers clear visibility.

Dave Alexander, BMW aftersales manager said: "The System 6 has been a very successful helmet since its launch last year. It's one of the lightest and quietest helmets on the market.

"We've had a lot of demand for fluorescent clothing and accessories - particularly from riders in urban areas who are very conscious of the need to be visible in all conditions.

"We're very pleased to be able to offer the added safety of the fluorescent colours in a stylish, modern-looking and well featured helmet."

The helmet is available for £375. Besides the fluorescent yellow scheme, it is also available in black, grey and metallic white for shrinking violets.
