Rossi 'Donkey' lid swings into production

AGV helmets cash-in on MotoGP World Champ's comical design

AGV IS TO release a road-going version of the Valentino Rossi 'The Donkey' helmet in January 2010 for a price of Euro 745.

The lid design, which the nine-times world champion came up with as a self-deprecating comment on his own race craft after crashing out of the Indianapolis MotoGP race,  is based on the new, top-of-the-range AGV GP-Tech.
