It's very unlikely they'd use anything like that. Those are scooter helmets, they're made from polycarbonate and designed for low speed only. They're not very aerodynamic and don't have much protection in an accident.
To make it believable they'd need it to look like a racing helmet for the high speed work and it would be ideal to have a peak or sun-visor for enduro work. Most of the dual-sport helmets have a removable peak but it would look good on screen to have the peak fold back for hyperthrust. There's a lot of decent looking helmets out there so it really comes down to what the bike looked like. If it had modern styling it would likely have sharp angles and ridges. Some of my choices would be

This kind of modern sports look

Or this with modern road styling

Or this kind of peak if it could retract for high speed

Or this awesome lid, again with a sun peak.

It just depends on how the bike looked and what fitted, I guess.

I have a helmet used Ghibli, but it's white.
In my opinion based on the characteristics and shape of helmet of the show, the current one that comes closest is the integral Shoei.

I think the original helmet would still look nice. It's a timeless design. Also it's the only helmet I have ever seen that doesn't make the rider look like a bubblehead. I actually always thought it was only a prop helmet because it is so streamlined. Any other helmet I have seen makes the rider's head look too big.
