THE AGV KAPPA HELMET BEATS THEM ALL
He did it for the first time at Alessandria, then at Imola for the Shell Gold Cup, and then increasingly frequently throughout the sixties. The deal with Giacomo Agostini was inevitable, motorcycling’s world champion could only be crowned with an AGV. The first contract was in 1967 and worth three million lira to the Bergamo superstar, who thus became the first racer on Amisano’s books.
Ago had his classic pudding-basin helmet painted in his own colours - white, red and green - with a chequered band along the bottom and the MV logo on the front. His victories on Count Agusta’s 350 and 500 bikes brought the AGV brand to increasing prominence worldwide.
