AGV Motorcycle Helmet
AGV has released a new Valentino Rossi limited edition GP-Tech helmet, a replica of the the lid that VR46 donned during the 2011 Mugello round of MotoGP.
The helmet, which was developed jointly with Aldo Drudi, is now available in shops that carry the AGV brand throughout the states.
The new Rossi-edition helmet features a large blue eye along with the colors of the Italian flag; the graphics carry a a message from the nine-time World Champion – “watch out because sooner or later there’s going to be a change.”
The GP-Tech, which is the top helmet in the AGV range, was designed and developed with the technical support of Rossi. The helmet was produced by merging the best features of the AVG race models (GP Pro, Ti-Tech ) with the Italian company’s racing experience to offer a lightweight, comfortable and extremely aerodynamic, innovative design.
