Valentino Rossi traditionally brings a custom helmet to his home race of Misano, and the 2012 round was no different. AGV has released this helmet, dubbed the Boxer, as a limited edition for the GP-Tech.
The Aldo Drudi design depicts Rossi, who was nearing the end of his run aboard the Ducati at the time, as a boxer that is on the ropes, yet still optimistic. Despite the bruises, bandages and a black eye, he is still seen asking the question “Come vado?” (How am I doing?). The back of the helmet shows his two ever-present bulldogs, Cesare and Cecilia, in boxing gloves and sporting a black eye each. His Sun & Moon logo is also found on the back, with Marco Simoncelli’s number next to it as a tribute to his late friend.
The AGV GP-Tech Rossi Boxer helmet is limited to just 1500 worldwide, but we also have plenty of other Rossi helmets available if there’s another one that you’re looking for.
