A celebration of Yamaha racing and the unique style of Rossi.

AGV has released a limited-edition Pista GP RR inspired by the graphics of Valentino Rossi's racing helmet, the Soleluna, in the 2005 MotoGP season in the legendary Laguna Seca. These graphics have never been reproduced before, and fans of The Doctor can now own this homage to motorsports history. 

The new AGV Pista GP RR dubbed i Caschi di Vale: Laguna Seca 2005, has been designed to pay tribute to Yamaha's rich racing history, and the unique style of Valentino Rossi. The Doctor wore these colors during the 2005 MotoGP season held in the U.S. This was in fact the legendary racer's first time to ride in the U.S. The helmet's yellow and black graphics draw inspiration from Kenny Robert's American Yamahas of the 70s and 80s. This colorway is often replicated on custom Yamaha builds and is often referred to as Yamaha 'Speed Block' graphics.
