Rossi’s 2018 Winter Test Helmet Design: Remember, You Can’t Judge Art

did anyone ever try to tell Elvis that the white leather jumpsuit was a bad idea?

Huichol is basically centuries old native Mexican art. It can look amazing.

Longtime Rossi helmet designer Aldo Drudi used Huichoi as the basis for the latest VR46 helmet design. Rossi will use this helmet for the winter MotoGP tests and is said to be using it today at Sepang.

While, personally, this design on Rossi’s helmet makes me recoil like the last time I sprayed contact cleaner in my own eyes, I’m sure that this helmet design will be popular with Rossi fans, and buyers if it makes it to production.

Quick random thought/question: did anyone ever try to tell Elvis that the white leather jumpsuit was a bad idea?
