Though he may be on his way out at Ducati Nicky Hayden is still currently the biggest American draw to the MotoGP championship and he still loves to celebrate his ‘home’ race at Laguna Seca (where he has won twice – 2005 & 2006) with a fancy new lid.
The Kentucky Kid is also adept at keeping his fans updated using social media so shared his new helmet image on his Twitter account @NickyHayden:
The theme is set up by camouflage 69 decals for the Ducati and continues in to the army-themed helmet design. Hayden has once again gone for an open-face style, similar to on the ‘Easy Rider/ Easy Hayden’ helmet he debuted last year. The back has a little army hayden character with ‘Born To Ride’ written on his helmet, flowers coming from his gun, a peace logo on top of the lis and bullets around the edge.
You could say working at Ducati’s been as epic as ‘war and peace’! (probably mainly war – rider vs bike,mostly!)
