I'd say it's just white. Pearl white is a totally different color than that pic

I agree with Judy, that's plain old white. Pearl white has a luminescent creamy sheen.

I had a pearl white GT, 2005 model, and it was a very distinct color. If you can't tell, yours is probably just white.

You need a bit of colour. Get a red or blue helmet, or a jazzy multi-colour one.

FWIW, after hi-viz yellow white is the most easily seen helmet.

hello. I believe that Bianco is white.

here's a pearl white. it has a different sort of hue. it also changes, to a degree, depending on the lighting.

More like a cue ball. Razz emoticon

I have a white helmet, for the reason cdwise mentions. I also have each a red one and black one. Matchy matchy to my red/black jacket. 8)

Put the helmet and scooter together, see if they clash.
