Shoei adds MM93 Retro designs to its Z-8 and Glamster lids

Shoei treats both its Z-8 and Glamster lids with racy and special MM93 Retro colourway designs.

  • Shoei releases new MM93 Retro graphics for both Z-8 and Glamster lids.

  • The colourway is a replica of Marc Marquez’ lid worn during the 2021 German GP.

  • The design uses a matte white base with matte-finished red and blue stripes plus reflective silver accents.

  • Sadly, the Z-8 MM93 Retro is only available in Japan for the moment, whereas the Glamster MM93 Retro sees limited availability in Europe.

  • Both are also on limited production run, with orders open between August to October this year only.

Japanese helmet makers Shoei have treated both its Z-8 and Glamster full-face helmets with a new racy special MM93 Retro colourway design.

Said paintwork is a replica of what Repsol Honda MotoGP rider Marc Marquez donned on his lid at last year’s German Grand Prix where he scored an emotional first win after coming back from a significant injury that side-lined him throughout the 2020 season.

A closer study of the graphics dressing both lids sees the use of a matte white base, followed by bold and highly-saturated blue and red accents that also feature a matte finish. There’s also clever use and positioning of reflective silver accents present.

Shoei plans to release this special-liveried Z-8 in its Japanese home market first starting August this year, and is limited to orders made by October. It will be available in XS to XXL sizes, each commanding a price tag of ¥69,300 (approx. RM 2,382.33).

As for the Glamster MM93 Retro, Shoei also plans for release in August this year and, like the Z-8, this will be a limited release as well. Sizes available for this will cover S to XXL, each tagged at ¥59,400 (approx. RM2,042).

Now, we’re certain you’re wondering about both lids availability outside Japan. Sadly, the Japanese helmet maker hasn’t confirmed plans to make the Z-8 MM93 Retro available internationally, whereas the Glamster MM93 Retro will reportedly see limited availability in the European market.
