This is an old school Valentino Rossi helmet classic.
This is the AGV K3 Valentino Rossi ’46’ helmet, and the design is based on the primary race helmet that Rossi raced with during the 2003 and 2004 MotoGP seasons. He won the 2003 World Championship with and then went on to win his first race with Yamaha using this helmet design, so it has a lot of history associated with it.
In fact this helmet could be viewed as one of Valentino Rossi’s most successful designs as he won a huge amount of races wearing this design, including wins on two different motorcycles (Honda and Yamaha).
Based on the original Aldo Drudi design this helmet presents a darker variation on Valentino’s Sun and Moon design. Like the previous helmets before it, the Sun and Moon are placed on either side of the helmet, but the Sun is black with electric blue jagged rays and the Moon is a bright yellow. The chin is bright red and features a yellow number 46.
This helmet design has not really been available for quite a long time, so it is great to see it being resurrected by AGV in their affordable K3 range. This is easily one of our favorite Rossi helmet designs of all time – simple, striking, and dark.
