Yup do away with dark colored helmets firstly, for conspicuity reasons and secondly for heat related issues...though heat issues only affect countries with extreme high temperatures...

Get a white helmet with red stripes..etc... to match your Panigale...avoid Matte black.

Wow - that sure was an interesting read. For the most part, I've shied away from dark lids for this very reason. Feeling pretty smug now I know I was right

Yup

I know that any matte finish would also suck up the heat on a hot sunny day.

Would be good if he tested gloss v matte black
