Valentino Rossi AGV Pista GP R Soleluna 2016 helmet

Excellent, AGV are finally releasing Valentino Rossi’s 2016 Soleluna helmet as a replica in their new AGV Pista GP R range. This AGV’s premium model and it is a race-spec helmet, it is basically the same product that Valentino Rossi is racing in each time he hits the track in MotoGP.

This is the beautiful Soleluna design that Valentino Rossi first revealed at the start of the 2016 MotoGP season, and it has become his primary MotoGP helmet design.

Like previous versions of Rossi’s long-running Soleluna design the helmet features a sun radiating back from the front of the helmet that intersects with a crescent moon at the rear, however this 2016 version of the design is most most abstract interpretation of Rossi’s Sun and Moon motif that we have ever seen.

This is a colourful design, full of geometrical shapes with splashes of bright pink and green. It’s a beautiful looking design and will be hugely popular with fans.

The AGV Pista GP R has also had an upgrade – this is AGVs updated version of the Pista GP and it has had modifications and features that have come straight off the race-track with feedback from riders like Valentino Rossi, Andrea Iannone, Jack Miller and many more.

Valentino Rossi AGV Corsa R Goodwood helmet

Valentino Rossi Goodwood AGV Corsa helmet

Valentino Rossi Goodwood AGV Corsa helmet

In 2015 Valentino Rossi attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed as a special guest – Rossi was there to mark Yamaha’s 60th anniversary in motorsport and as part of the celebrations he rode a Yamaha YZR-M1 along the famous Goodwood Hillclimb track. You can read about the whole event and see photos and videos in our write-up.

To celebrate Yamaha’s 60th anniversary Rossi appeared in the famous retro Yellow and Black Molly graphics that were associated with Yamaha’s racing team (especially in the US).

The helmet that Rossi wore adpoted this classic colour scheme and now AGV have made it available to buy as a replica in their AGV Corsa R range, and it is totally beautiful.

Designed by Aldo Drudi, the helmet is yellow and black, with a large ’46’ (also in yellow) on the upper sides of the helmet. The base of the helmet features the iconic black rectangles on a white background that any longtime motorcycle racing fan will recognise and and probably make them think back to Kenny Roberts in the 1970s. Rossi’s signature is also featured on the front of the chin.

This is a really classy and beautiful Valentino Rossi helmet that is steeped in racing history. We expect this one to sell very quickly indeed.

The AGV Corsa R helmet is a upper-range AGV helmet that is packed with features, including many features that you would get on the premium AGV Pista GP R range (AGV’s pure racing helmet), but at a fraction of the price. The Corsa R is actually pretty close to the Pista GP R in terms of specification with the most notable difference being that it uses a carbon fiberglass shell (as opposed to the pure carbon fiber shell that the Pista GP R uses).

Valentino Rossi at Goodwood 2015

Description of the Valentino Rossi AGV Corsa R Goodwood helmet:
Offering most of the same features as the top-of-the-line Pista GP R but in a carbon-fiberglass shell and adjustable vents, the Corsa R is designed for uncompromising performance on the track. A new interior construction provides a stable, pressure-free fit, and the patented, reversible crown pad features two distinct fabrics, allowing riders to select between warm and cool sides depending on conditions or personal preference. A removable nose guard and wind deflector are both included, and the Integrated Ventilation System (IVS) places intake ports at areas of maximum airflow.

  • Shell in CAAF (Carbon-Aramidic-Fiberglass) engineered in 4 sizes with 5-densities EPS structure developed in 4 sizes.
  • Shell shape is designed to maximize aerodynamic performance and to minimize the risk of impact energies being channeled to the collar bone. Rear shape is engineered to minimize interference with racing suits structures in racing position.

  • Neck roll: Shalimar and Nabuk fabric with water resistant treatment, preventing water to be channeled inside the helmet.

AGV K3 SV Valentino Rossi Bollo 46 Helmet

Valentino Rossi AGV K3 SV Bollo 46 helmet

Valentino Rossi AGV K3 SV Bollo 46 helmet

AGV don’t always produce exact Valentino Rossi race replica helmets, sometimes they release ‘Rossi inspired’ helmets…..but it has been a while since they have done one like this. This is the AGV K3 SV Bollo 46 helmet that takes Vale’s famous ’46’ as inspiration for a simple and classy looking helmet design.

The AGV K3 SV is bascially AGV’s entry level helmet in their range, however to be honest this helmet comes loaded with features that you’d expect on higher priced helmets, so to call it ‘entry level’ is a bit unfair. The AGV K3 SV is their update to their previous best-selling K3 range and the new version adds a load of new practical features like an internal sun-visor (hence the ‘SV’ in the name), as well as a new shape, a new shell, a new interior….you name it, it’s all new.

The design features a jet black base with a large ’46’ on either side of the helmet in a yellow circle. The ‘VR46’ logo is also featured on either side of the chin and also on the top of the helmet. A simple but striking design.

The AGV K3 SV is also the cheapest way to get an official Valentino Rossi helmet and they usually retail at under the $300 / £250 price point (depending on the model and design), but if you shop around you can get them for less.

Product Description of the AGV K3 SV Bollo 46 helmet:
The K-3 SV was developed from the experience AGV gained during the design process of the Pista GP and Corsa helmets.

Thanks to the use of FEM (Finite Element Analysis), the technical department developed a benchmark product in terms of comfort, aerodynamics and safety. This helmet has a wide appeal and is suitable for young riders with a passion for racing as well as for more mature riders looking for comfort and high performance characteristics. The modern aerodynamic design of the shell has the same characteristics as the most recent AGV models.

An aerodynamic shell shape is optimized for stability and aggressive aesthetics and features an integrated, compact rear spoiler to reduce turbulence. The narrow chin bar is streamlined to help the helmet cut through the wind at high speeds, further increasing stability. The AGV K3 SV helmet incorporates a drop-down sun visor, making the helmet a tour de force, aggressive street or touring helmet. The K3 is also communication-ready and features speaker pocket cut outs to minimize discomfort caused by Bluetooth speakers pressing into your ears. The AGV K-3 SV Helmet is an excellent choice for any rider who values sophisticated, modern design in a safe and feature-rich package.

  • SHELL HIR-TH (High Resistant ThermoPlastic Resin) outer shell. The K-3 SV is available in XS to XXL sizes with two differing outer shell sizes.
  • VENTILATION The IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) was designed using CFD analysis and features ducts hollowed into the shell for improved air circulation inside the helmet and better aerodynamic efficiency. Two front air vents at the sides work with a new larger central vent to provide a constant flow of cool air inside the helmet. The rear extractors use ducts hollowed into the EPS to remove hot, moist air from inside the helmet.
  • VISOR The new GT 2 visor has been treated as standard with special scratch resistant and anti-fog processes. It also offers 100% protection against UV rays. The new visor edge on this model offers a better seal and protection from draughts and noise. The visor also features a new micro-opening system which is easily operated from a button on the chin guard. The K-3 SV also comes with an anti-fog, scratch-resistant, tinted, internal sun visor that can be removed for cleaning and replacement without the use of tools.
  • INNER LINERS The inner liners can be removed and washed and are made from a sanitised Dry-Comfort fabric to prevent the formation of bacteria and the onset of allergies. This fabric contributes to the rapid dispersal of dampness from the skin, the absorption of excess sweat and ensures the rider stays fresh even over long periods of time.
  • FUNCTIONALITY/SAFETY The mechanism for opening and closing the visor has three customisable settings according to helmet use (Touring, Race and City) and features the XQRS system for quick removal. The retention system has a Double-D ring and an anti-theft ring. The K-3 SV comes ready for connection with the new SHARE communication platform.

Valentino Rossi 'Sweet Home Misano' helmet 2016

Valentino Rossi’s special helmet design for the 2016 Misano MotoGP has been revealed today and it features a tribute to one of Valentino Rossi’s favorite films – The Blues Brothers.

Rossi and Uccio both feature on the front of the helmet dressed as the iconic Blues Brothers, and the words ‘Sweet Home Misano’ is written in large letters above them – this is a play on words with the Blues Brothers song ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ from the film. The side of the helmet also features the police car from the film.

On the rear Valentino Rossi’s cartoon dogs and cat are also dressed as Blues Brothers.

Check out the photos here of Valentino Rossi’s 2016 Misano helmet:

Amazing Valentino Rossi ‘Shark’ motorcycle paint-job

Valentino Rossi Shark Bike

Remember the Shark helmet design that Valentino Rossi wore for the 2015 Misano MotoGP race – well someone has taken that design and applied to their entire motorcycle. And it has turned out really well – you have to admire the creative mind that came up with this, plus the execution is perfect.

The original helmet was created to signify the pressure that Valentino Rossi was under at Misano and Valentino stated that it symbolised the fact that he was a target for all other riders to beat given that it was his home race. On the original design Rossi was portrayed as a cartoon yellow fish being hunted down by a large blue shark.

In reality most people assumed the design signified Rossi’s slight lead in the Championship over Jorge Lorenzo who was the shark closing in on the fish of Rossi.

Anyway, back to the bike – this is an incredible paint job that features the Shark on the main tank of the motorcycle and the fish is placed on the front mud-guard.

This is one amazing custom paint-job for a motorcycle.

This is the new version of Rossi’s baseball cap that he first wore during the tense pre-season race conference, where Rossi, Lorenzo and Marquez all came face-to-face for the first time since the dramatic events at the end of the 2015 MotoGP season, and it was met with huge approval from fans who went straight to twitter to ask where they could buy one.

The hat attracted a lot of attention – probably because pretty much the entire cap is in bright yellow (aside from the sponsor logos), making it a very eye-catching piece of merchandise..

Valentino Rossi press conference

The good news is that this cap is now available on general sale for you to buy online (we have provided links below).

The cap is bright yellow all over, aside from under the peak which is black with a small. The green Monster Energy logo sits at the front, and there is a small black VR46 logo stitched into the left-hand side of the peak. The sides features the number ’46’ and the Yamaha logos. Very nice indeed.

Official Description:

Yellow Mugello goes up in smoke for Valentino Rossi

rossi 46

rossi 46

Every year at the Mugello MotoGP the crowd is decked out in yellow and they show their support for their local hero Valentino Rossi by letting off yellow smoke bombs. Plumes of yellow can be seen billowing from most of the stands around the iconic Italian circuit on race day.

But it was smnoke that signalled the end of Valentino Rossi’s dream of winning at Mugello for the first time since 2008. The Doctor suffered an engine failure on lap 9 which saw his Yamaha M1 engulfed in smoke forcing him to retire from the race. This is Rossi’s second DNF of the 2016 season.

Here is what Valentino had to say about the incident: “In English they say ‘shit happens’!”

“It’s a great shame, because it’s always a pity when you have a problem with the bike in the race, but here even more so because it was in Mugello in front of all the crowd. I was very competitive in the race and very fast, I had a good start and I was there. I think I could have fought for the victory because I had a very good feeling and a strong pace. It’s also a great shame because this zero points score for the championship weighs very heavily. Lorenzo and Marquez finished first and second, so now the distance is hard, but it’s like this. The positive thing is that I was competitive over the whole weekend and I was strong. I could have fought for the victory, so now we wait for the next race in Montmeló. Catalunya is one of my favourite tracks, I like to race there a lot, so I think we will have a good potential, but now we have to wait ten days and after that we will see.”

Valentino Rossi’s 2016 Mugello helmet ‘Mugiallo’

Valentino Rossi's 2016 Mugello helmet

Here we go……Valentino Rossi has now revealed his special hemet design for the 2016 MotoGP. Rossi revealed the design for the Saturday morning FP3 session.

The helmet is bright yellow and features the Mugello track on the top and the words ‘Mugiallo’ written in black text around the front.

Valentino Rossi's 2016 Mugello helmet

‘Giallo’ is Italian for yellow, and the helmet is designed as a tribute to the Mugello circuit, which features as an image on the top of the helmet. The text which reads ‘Mugiallo’ is a play on words that basically combines ‘Mugello’ with ‘Yellow – a tribute to the fans that screams out ‘Mugello is yellow’. And if you take one look at the crowds there, then it is hard to disagree with that statement and this helmet design pays a huge tribute to the “Popolo Giallo” (the Yellow crowd) that swarm on Mugello every year to support Valentino.

‘Giallo’ is also an Italian genre of literature and film, usually involving supernatural plots, horror elements, mystery, and twists and turns – a metaphor perhaps for the Mugello track itself? We’ll find out soon enough.

The helmet also features some of Rossi’s usual icons, such as a cartoon of his two bulldogs, Cesare and Cecilia, and his cat, Rossano on the rear of the helmet. The Italian flag is on either side of the chin.

The helmet was designed by Aldo Drudi.

The Mugello MotoGP is just around the corner, and while we wait to see what special helmet design Valentino Rossi has in store for the fans, Rossi is expressing confidence that he can be competitive in the latest press release from Yamaha.

Fresh on the heels of the news that Maverick Vinales will be joining Valentino in a two year deal at the factory Yamaha team from 2017 and 2018, Vale stated that getting the Yamaha set-up right early in the weekend wil be key to success at Mugello.

Read what Valentio said below:

I love Mugello and its atmosphere. It’s very difficult for me to keep my concentration here because there are always so many of my friends and fans around, but the Mugello race is also special for me for that reason. I’ve had some victories here, many great battles and a lot of good memories. I think this year we can be competitive because our bike is good and I’m getting into a good shape. At the Le Mans GP we arrived late at achieving the right set up for the race, at Mugello we will not make this mistake again. After Le Mans I’m relaxed and now I’m ready to try to attain the maximum level of concentration for the Mugello GP.
