Good news for MotoGP fans and Valentino Rossi fans, the special helmet design, usually most commonly known as the ‘Mirror’ or ‘Yellow Energy’ that Rossi used for the Mugello GP in 2015 is now in stock at numerous places, including the ever wonderful Sportsbikeshop.co.uk. And it looks beautiful.
This beautiful looking helmet was created with a battery/energy gauge up the rear of the lid, with solar panels painted on the sides – Rossi used the helmet to give an indication of the energy that he gets from his fans at Mugello during a race weekend.
The reflective top of the helmet made it an eye-catching sight as he roared around the Mugello circuit.
Here are the specifications:
