The new Limited Edition Rossi Mugello 2017 Pista GP R Helmet is available at motorcycle stores Australia wide, visit www.agvhelmets.com.au for more info. AGV Helmets is exclusively distributed in Australia by Link International.
The Pista GP R, the evolution of the Pista GP, offers the most protection of any helmet ever produced by AGV. It is the synthesis of protection, performance and comfort, the three cornerstones in development protocols of AGV Extreme Standards.
The Pista GP R offers superior visibility and is characterized by the patented Visor Lock System (VLS). With the use of the new Biplano spoiler, aerodynamic performance is optimised and the comfort level benefits from a patented interior system and the implementation of the Integrated Ventilation System (IVS).
The background colors are green, like the turf on a soccer field, and inevitable yellow. The subject is obviously Valentino Rossi who, with this new helmet, is depicted as a soccer player with the number 46, light blue National team jersey and a band aid on his forehead, poised in front of the goalkeeper and ready to score a goal. The writing next to the cartoon reads, “Mo’ je faccio er cucchiaio”, which reveals who the rider from Team Movistar Yamaha has dedicated this helmet to: Francesco Totti, the star soccer player from Rome who just “retired”.
On the back of the helmet is another famous statement associated with Totti, “Un capitano… C’è solo un capitano!” (One captain…there is only one captain!) and the sponsor Yamaha Factory Racing peeking out from behind the goal post. On the sides of the chin strap, the number 46 is joined by 69, the number of the great Nicky Hayden, to form a single, dual-tone 469. The AGV shield is positioned on the side and includes the writing, “Mugello 2017″
The personalized graphics stem from inspiration of the rider in collaboration with Aldo Drudi, who is very adept at transforming ideas into shapes and colors. The AGV helmet, which has been with Valentino for 20 years and by his side each time he took the victory, is also dedicated to his homeland and the hills of Mugello packed with his fans.
