AGV Helmet – Care and Maintenance Video
Reason. Passion. Lifestyle
AGV is most likely the company that introduced the concept of racing endorsements into the motorcycle world. Always a pioneer AGV helped create the first Mobile Clinic. In the Seventies AGV started one of the races that is a legend to these days: the AGV Cup which was born as a three race endurance Championship raced in Daytona, Paul Ricard and Misano Adriatico; the Daytona 200, possibly the single most important race in the world, would not be raced today if it wasnâ€™t for the far-sightedness of AGV founder Gino Amisano who, thirty years ago, understood its incredible potential.
Through the years AGV has raced and won with the main motorcycle and auto racing icons. Giacomo Agostini, Barry Sheene, Kenny Roberts, Johnny Ceccotto, Angel Nieto, Marco Lucchinelli, Franco Uncini, Fausto Gresini, Nicky Lauda, Nelson Piquet, Emerson Fittipaldi, Randy Mamola, Luca Cadalora, Troy Corser, Max Biaggi and Manuel Poggiali. The list is long and impressive.
Valentino Rossi deserves a chapter of his own. In his never ending search for new challenges and new records to break â€“ which he never fails to do â€“ there has been one single standard: his AGV helmet. Eight years, four classes, five bikes, five world titles and 60 GP victories. Only one helmet.For the future AGV is going to maintain the direction followed so far: keep working with the number one Valentino Rossi, but with a special eye to the new pilots generation.
In 2004 AGV supports many different riders in the main classes of motorcycle racing. In the World Motorcycle Championship, besides Valentino Rossi, AGV also races in the 250cc class with Lukas Pesek and in the 125cc class with young guns Mike Di Meglio, Steve Jenkner e Hector Barbera. who, after finishing third in?the 2003?championship will try to take home the 2004 title.
