Agv Corsa The Valentino Rossi Double Face HelmetThe new Moto GP season starts!

At the official tests in Sepang Valentino Rossi amazed everyone with a brand new helmet for the first laps of 2014. As usual “The Doctor” showed no lack of originality and never ceases to surprise us with his ideas.

After the more conservative yellow and grey AGV Pista GP that he wore during last year’s Winter Tests to match the colour scheme of his bike until the final livery had been decided upon, the new helmet that was exclusively created for the Malaysia track is simply spectacular.

The designer, Aldo Drudi, included the famous Sun and Moon symbol Valentino carried during the 2013 World Championship Series. This time however, he inverted things by 180° with the front and rear apparently the same. From behind it looks as if Valentino’s face is peering out from behind a visor almost as if to taunt his adversaries.

By means of the message  “I have my eyes on you”, the Tavullia rider appears to be clearly stating his intention to get back in the game, reclaim his name as the best in the world and finally win his 10th World Championship title.

The Corsa limited edition replica will be available from June costing £799. To order, visit your local TeamAGV dealer, to find your nearest dealer visit:www.agv.co.uk/dealer-search

Exclusive Scoop! – Monster Energy logo on Vale’s replica 

For the first time we’ll see the logo of the world’s biggest energy drink on the chin guard and sides of his helmet. The unique and captivating M of Monster Energy is shown in lime green stylised flames with white shading around the edges. Monster Energy has sponsored vale since 2009 when he was one of the first European Sports stars. At that time, the president of Monster Energy said: “Striving for greatness” has always been our motto and we share this belief with a true champion – Rossi”.
