Rossi replica helmets have to be up there as the most desirable of all the race replica lids. Some are now viewed as a bit of an investment, as long as you haven’t stunk it up with your helmet hair. New for 2016 is this, the ‘Winter test’ version of the stunning AGV Pista GP.
Valentino Rossi and AGV helmets have worked together for 20 years, it was indeed an AGV that he wore to his first win in 125GPs back in 1996. The Winter test in Sepang is a hot one, maybe the local temperatures had something to do with the frosty artwork on this one, maybe it has some kind of out in the cold undertone. Who knows? It certainly looks pretty cool and would make a great addition to your collection or your riding kit.
Priced at £899.99 and limited to around 100 pieces, you can order your AGV Winter test Rossi replica from your usual AGV retailer.
If you’ve decided that Rossi is an arsehole (we haven’t, but we know a fair few of you lot have) then you might be more interested in this Andrea Iannone replica. This one represents the bird that Iannone smashed in the head at the Phillip Island race. Available in the Corsa replica model, this one will set you back £649.99 and will again be limited to around 100 pieces.
Both models will be ready to wear in September, but common sense suggests placing an order early if you’re an out and out fanboy (or girl).
