Kenny Roberts shows off new helmet design

Like many of the MotoGP riders at the start of each new season, Kenny Roberts Jr is sporting a new design on his helmet. The American star, who begins a new era in 2002 aboard the 4 stroke Suzuki GSV-R, also decided it was time for a fresh new image. The former 500cc World Champion explained the design exclusively to motograndprix.com.

`I decided my old look was a bit boring and it was time for a change. My new helmet features some pretty symbolic designs. The two eagles represent myself and my father winning the World Championship. The star spangled banner is dedicated to American service men all over the world.´
