Valentino Rossi goes retro with new AGV Helmet at Sepang test. Looks MINT. Looks like the lid from 20 years ago. AND you can buy one NOW (almost).

Valentino Rossi is back on the track today at Sepang in Malaysia for day two of the MotoGP tests with the SoleLuna original helmet paint – a full 20 years after winning his first world championship title with the famous sun-and-moon design.
You like? You want one on a top lid? Good news then because the helmet design that accompanied the rider from Tavullia on his career debut two decades ago will be applied to the Pista GP R, the top Racing AGV helmet.
“It’s a beautiful helmet, I am honored that AGV has introduced it again because it brings to mind lots of unforgettable memories and victories,” said Rossi who will wear the exclusive Pista GP R during winter testing in Sepang.
The historic graphic has been given a modern twist. The AGV graphic designers and Drudi
have updated the background colors: it is now the 100% carbon fiber shell that darkens
the background on the side that was once painted black, and the yellow is now neon. The
specially designed logo celebrating the 20th anniversary of Valentino Rossi’s first world
championship title is positioned on the chin guard too.
No price on the helmet yet but the 3,000 AGV Pista GP R 20 Years Limited Edition helmets being produced will be available from the beginning of February 2018 (that’s in, like, two days time – ish) so be quick if you want one.
