We’re dubbing Valentino Rossi’s 2011 Mugello helmet “The Eye” although we gather that’s not its official name. In any case, there will be an AGV Rossi Mugello replica version to celebrate the helmet there’s no way we’d want to ride behind. The Aldo Drudi-designed helmet was made as an ironic take on Rossi’s last fatalistic Mugello round, and as a message to Rossi and Ducati fans to keep on eye on them because things can change (hoping for more positive rounds in the future).
The Mugello helmet features a big eye, the Italian flag to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italian unification, and Rossi’s dogs with the words “the chihuahua tribe”, photographed by the rider himself. The AGV Valentino Rossi Replica Mugello 2011 looks like it will get a production run, so keep your eye open for more details in the future.
