As you can see from the pictures, on the back of the limited edition helmet comes with ideograms for the Japanese word “Kando”, a word that was first used by the former head of Yamaha’s MotoGP program Masao Furusawa to describe Valentino Rossi when he joined Yamaha in 2004, and the version seen on the helmet was designed by Masao’s wife. The “Kando” word is used to indicate an intense emotion, such as a felt when seeing someone exclusive, deeply satisfying, or encountering something very special.
Based on the 2013 AGV Corsa motorcycle helmet, a road version of the Race PistaGP. The Corsa model is created as part of the AGV Extreme Standards project. It shares the same shell shape, aerodynamics, ventilation and eye port improvements as the GP-Tech helmet.
The Corsa has standard breathable Micro-porous and Dry-comfort inner liner with sanitizing treatment which are fully washable and removable. The Corsa also uses the same AGV Race 2 flat, non scratch visor to provide a wide field of vision. The new crash helmets are also coming with Pinlock in the box as standard with Race posts on the outside too to keep away the grime off the road or race track. Along with the new visor, the AGV XQRS (Extra quick release system ) is also fitted to quickly tool free remove the visor in seconds.
