Coinciding with the final round of the 2013 MotoGP™ World Championship in Valencia a new X-Lite limited edition helmet has been released.
The presentation of the X-Lite X-802R ULTRA CARBON MotoGP™ LIMITED EDITION helmet was made by Alberto Vergani (Nolan Group President) to Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna CEO, in the Team Gresini hospitality today at the Circuito Ricardo Tormo de la Comunitat Valenciana.
The X-802R ULTRA CARBON MotoGP™ LIMITED EDITION embodies all the characteristics of top of the range racing X-802R, thanks to an outer shell made with a high content of lightweight carbon fiber, but differs in some racing details.
The X-802R ULTRA CARBON MotoGP™ LIMITED EDITION is assembled by the REPARTO CORSE Nolangroup® and is exclusively available for sale on the MotoGP™ Store website (www.store.motogp.com), in individually numbered pieces from 0 to 99.
"For the last eight years we have been the only company to build replica MotoGP™ helmets under licence from Dorna, and this year we set our minds to producing a limited edition model to give fans the chance to own an authentic racing helmet. We have decided to sell it exclusively through the official MotoGP™ website because it is designed specifically for dedicated fans of the MotoGP™ World Championship series. The X-802R ULTRA CARBON MotoGP™ LIMITED EDITION is a special edition from our range of "approved" helmets by our Racing Division" - explained Alberto Vergani - Chairman of Nolangroup – before presenting Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna CEO, with number 0 of 99.
Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna Sports Chief Executive Officer, added: "I am very pleased with the longstanding partnership and license we have had with NOLAN. They have shown a huge commitment to MotoGP™ over the years with the excellence and quality of their helmets which is again clearly visible with this new exceptional design and limited edition MotoGP™ helmet."
To complete the equipment, the X-802R ULTRA CARBON MotoGP™ LIMITED EDITION comes with a special edition package, a helmet bag with X-lite and MotoGP™ embroidered logos plus an additional racing bag with visor pocket.
