Retro-designed AGV X3000 full-face and X70 open-face helmets are now available in Australia with two race legend tribute helmets.

The X3000 range is led by a $999 limited-edition tribute to the legendary 15-time world motorcycle champion, Giacomo Agostini (pictured above).

Top of the open-face X70 range is the $499 Pasolini which is a tribute to GP legend Renzo Pasolini who died in the Monza GP in 1973.

The X70 range has six colours ranging from plain black or white at $299, to silver and matte black at $329, a three-shade maroon at $399 and the Pasolini.

The profile of the X70 jet helmet is compact, owing to the three fibreglass shell sizes.

It is also light, has a fully removable and washable interior, double shell fastening and a double D-Ring retention system.

There is a range of peaks and visors available, that attach via the three classic press studs.

AGV founder Gino Amisano worked closely with Ago to develop the full-face helmet for racing.

The X3000 series replicates the profile of the original helmet with a low chin guard and tapered bottom.

It also includes the contoured chin piece that Ago requested so he could lean his head on against the tank.Giacomo Agostini Ago AGV tribute helmet

In true classic design, the visor mechanism has a dual-button snap shut that can be opened with the left hand alone.

But unlike some of the other retro helmets around, it appears to have a better wind seal for lower noise. 

The interior features leather and fabric with breathable, replaceable and washable padding.Giacomo Agostini Ago AGV tribute helmet

There are only 3000 of the Ago tribute helmets available worldwide. It comes in a luxury leather bag in sizes 56-59.

The Ago is made of carbon fibre and weighs just 1290 grams in the smallest size.

The rest of the X3000 range is made of fibreglass.

  1. The original full-face helmet design had some nasty design flaws that contributed to increased neck injuries. Why anyone would want to go retro in a helmet makes the mind boggle. I also found that the one AGV helmet I had (Rossi replica) was very poorly made and started to fall apart within months. Combine AGV and poorly designed retro style – seriously, why would anyone buy one?
