I purchased it from A H Helmets. It is located just after Infinity Mall on New Link Road towards the Lokhandwala side.
Here is the same on Google Maps: A H Helmets, Andheri East, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India - Google Maps

Another shop you could try is Bachoo Motors in Tardeo. Also, there's a famous shop in Lamington Road (don't recollect the name).

In addition to the above, visit Performance Racing Store, located in Tardeo as well.

Highly recommended. Speak to Vicky Jaising.

You can browse through their merchandise here.

Guys from Hyd, what are the street prices of LS2 helmets? The helmet shops in Koti are asking for 5k! Any particular shop recommended?

Adventureontherocks.com sell LS2 online, but they have their studio in Hyderabad in Madhapur - I think they quote close to 4k for LS2.

^ I paid 2.5k for LS2 Phobia in Mumbai, it might be a couple of hundreds more at max. Anyways, just saw this on eBay, LS2 Dream for 3,250. At 4,000, I would rather go for a Dajiya as compared to LS2.

Yeah, I did see the link on eBay today, but wanted to try on one before buying, so need a physical shop.

3k seems a fair price for LS2 then. Hope someone can point out a shop in Hyd that sells at this price

Does anyone know where I could get Vega helmets in Pune with more colour options? I have tried Nanapeth and a few other places.
In all cases, they have just one black piece of Vega which hasn't been to my wife's liking.

The helmet is for my wife and she is more keen on getting a white colour.

Also noticed that either the helmets are a bit tight (the earrings need to be removed to wear the helmet) or they are a bit loose and exhibit some play).

Any lady experienced this kind of issue (with the earrings on?).

My wife removes the earrings and has to tie the pony as well. BTW, she wears a full face helmet. IMO, earrings are a no no. Its a compromise the ladies should be willing to make

It think it depends on the earings.
If they are the small stud types, there should (I assume) be no issues.

My wife does not ride pillion on my bike. Maybe once in 6 months or so. She does not wear a helmet as the distance would be less than 3 kms if at all.

I doubt check if my stud is there as I have had issues of stud screw coming loose sometimes; cant afford to buy a new stud again! I use a full face helmet.

Saw a red Vega helmet with some nice art work. Was beautiful. It also had two visors, one inside the helmet which is dark and can be moved up if you dnt want ( guess it will go inside helmet) and the outer plain one.

Trust me, I can't wait to get that myself . Usually they are worn under a jacket but taking them off with the leather jacket will be much easier in nne swift movement if they are worn outside.

I am not able to convince myself a modular helmet or else can you imagine how would I look in these (bottom right)?

what you need is a scarf on your head or a German helmet (a bandanna maybe?) riding that bike of yours. the ones above look appropriate for street/sports bikes. never seen a cruiser rider in those kinda helmets.

the last one looks like a police outrider helmet - you know, those motorcycle cops!

actually half/open face helmet is the norm on cruisers. But thinking of safety I am sticking to the full face helmet I have. I have seen many cruiser bikers wearing full face helmets.

But I thought the bottom right was closest to a half face helmet I could get.

I personally like the bottom right one and in my opinion it'll go with the cruiser too.
