Check Out Valentino Rossi’s Final Misano Helmet Design

Oct 242021

A superstar, champion, showman; Valentino Rossi is MotoGP, and it is fair to say the sport won't quite be the same without him. 

For the second Grand Prix of Misano; Valentino Rossi’s final home Grand Prix as a competing MotoGP rider, the VR46 design team pulled out something special. Inspired by the legions of fluro-yellow-clad fans that pack out the grandstands around the Misano World circuit, Rossi’s signature AGV Pista RR helmet pays tribute to his trackside support.

Speaking to the media on Saturday at Misano, designer Aldo Drudi said: “We worked on the graphics starting from a photo by Gigi Soldano of the grandstands of the Misano, so the fans will be able to recognize themselves.”
