Valentino Rossi reveals Mugello 2013 helmet!

Valentino Rossi has debuted his special Mugello helmet design for this years Mugello Grand Prix. Shown ahead of MotoGP FP3 the AGV helmet features an Aldo Drudi design based on the small turtle decal usually sported on his visor, which is also a tattoo on the Italian.

Of his choice of turtle tattoo he has said he chose it “Because I like the animal a lot. I had it as a mascot from when I was very young.” It also gives a strong contrast of slowness and speed as the graphic usually features his racing number on it’s shell.

Mugello has given us some classic Rossi helmet specials over the years, including the 2008 favourite Rossi face, his 2006 heroes design featuring Steve McQueen, the eyeball design from 2011 and the hands on head image from 2009.
