Okay, so this isn’t an actual Valentino Rossi replica, but AGV won’t let a good opportunity to shift a few extra units by putting the race number of their most famous rider on the side of a decent helmet. This is the AGV AX-8 Evo Valentino Rossi ’46’ helmet.
The design is simple, a plain black helmet with a Rossi’s race number ’46’ on the sides. Add an AGV logo or two, and you have yourself a minimal and clean helmet design. This stripped back design is actually pretty in-keeping with the AGV AX-8 Evo helmet ethos.
The AX-8 Evo Naked Helmet is the street bike version of the AX-8 DS EVO. AGV have removed a few features, like the peak, in order to strip back this helmet and reduce any excess weight and drag.
