Valentino Rossi 2015 Mugello Helmet

How about the new AGV Corsa Valentino Rossi Mirror Mugello 2015 helmet:

As is traditional, Valentino Rossi unveiled a special helmet design on Saturday morning of his home Italian MotoGP at Mugello.

The helmet features a mirror effect on the top 'to
symbolically mirror his fans and the crowded hills of the Mugello Circuit'.

Meanwhile the back of the helmet has several energy levels, starting from bright red for free practice and moving up to the maximum level of yellow, Rossi's favorite colour, on the grid.

On the right, the helmet features the number 46, combined with the "recycling" icon and the "Renewable Energy" writing.

On the left, "Yellow Energy" can be read and the footprints of Valentino's cat Rossano and his dogs Cesare and Camilla are drawn. The chin guard features blue solar panels to provide a further 'energy charge' to the seven time MotoGP champion.

What do you guys think? yay or nay?

It's a nice helmet but too much baby blue for my taste. It will look good on a GSXR or a Yammy.
Thanks from Sharky

I like it. But I am partial to Rossi's helmets. If I could afford them all I'd have a hutch or long ass shelf with them all on it.

I love this helmet. Then again, like b9009b mentioned, I'd buy them all.
Thanks from Sharky and b9009b

First helmet of his I don't hate, no cheesy cartoon graphics on it that would appeal to a 5yr old.
Thanks from Sharky

I like it...........but the nod to renewable energy is kind of irrelevant to MotoGP no? Or are we also going to have battery power rammed down our throats eventually like F1 and just kill off the sport altogether!!
