Listen up, Valentino Rossi fans – the AGV Corsa 2015 Winter Test Limited Edition is now available.

At the first test of the season at Sepang, the Doctor from Tavullia showed off the graphics on his new helmet and took the idea of ‘winter’ tests very much to heart. Despite the sweltering heat, he showed up in the pits wearing a woolly hat with winter symbols like snowflakes, deer and snow-covered trees. The new livery chosen by Valentino Rossi features a two-colour design with his usual fluorescent yellow and blue colour scheme and his number 46 printed on the sides of the helmet in a new tapestry effect.

The Corsa model combines the performance of the AGV Pista GP model with the characteristics needed for use on the road. The Corsa has a Carbon-Aramidic-Fiberglass fibre shell, which was designed using FEM techniques and features EPS internal ducts to create a small, light helmet which is both comfortable and safe.

The result is a helmet that weighs just 1350g (+/- 50 g) in MS size.

The AGV Corsa Limited Edition is available from today on the www.agv.com website at a RRP of €959. Buy the helmet and you’ll also get a FREE woolly hat with the same design of the one that Rossi wore during the Sepang tests. Not entirely handy for the weather right now, but you’ll look great at Motorcycle Live in November!
