AGV GP-Tech Donkey Helmet
Valentino Rossi appeared with yet another unique helmet for his hometown GP race in Misano. This year, the helmet sported a prominent picture of a donkey - Rossi's own interpretation of himself after his crash in Indianapolis the week prior.
The Donkey helmet, another design by Aldo Drudi, features a large donkey on the top of the helmet with the number 46 on either side. The base color of the helmet is blue, and on the back is a cartoon interpretation of Valentino's dogs, Cesare and Cecilia, who are wearing donkey ears. The Back also features the phrase 'El Sumer' which is the Romagna translation of 'The Donkey' and the words “The Donkey” written where normally it would say “The Doctor” (and in the same style). The trademark sun and moon are on the sides of the chin.
