The Aprilia Tuono 660 being ridden on track

The AGV Pista GP-RR is a stunning piece of kit, and it really is my go-to helmet for fast road and track riding. The fact that it also works while out and about riding more relaxed motorcycles for me is a massive bonus. More than that though, with its FIM homologation (it is basically the exact same lid used by the riders in MotoGP) you are owning one of the most high-tech and heavily tested pieces of headwear planet earth has to offer.

It's not the quietest lid I’ve worn, and a free-falling visor is a bit of a pain when riding on the road. Can I forgive it those two small niggles? Yes, and I know the next time I head out on the road, it’ll be the first thing I reach for from my kit bag.
